Soft CellLyrics Tainted Love/Where Did Our Love Go

The two members of the 80s band Soft Cell met in college, where they attended Leeds Polytechnic Fine Arts School in Yorkshire, England. The pair collaborated on a few abstract arts performances in the school. Ball, who came from playing guitar, began experimenting in the university’s campus studio where he familiarized himself with the synthesizer technology that would build up to Soft Cell.

Soft Cell’s first EP attracted the attention of labels like Mute records and Some Bizarre records who where pioneering synthesizing 80s bands. The labels became impatient and allowed Soft Cell one last attempt to produce a chart hit.

Soft Cell chose to put forth a uniquely altered version of the old soul classic “Tainted Love” by Gloria Jones. The song was a number 1 hit in seventeen countries. Despite the massiveness of the single it was the only major hit in the United States. However many other hits were born in the United Kindom such as "Bedsitter," "Say Hello, Wave Goodbye," "Torch," and "What."

Watch and listen to the music video for the song Tainted Love by Soft Cell.
