3760. “Tainted Love” by Impedance

12″ Single Cover Video:

I can find almost no information online about Impedance or their cover of “Tainted Love.” Soft Cell had a huge a hit with this cover of an old Gloria Jones tune in the early 80′s and Impedance’s version is more a cover of Soft Cell than Jones. None the less, here is the Jones original:

I must have played the Impedance song enough in 1989 to warrant including it on a mix tape because it was on my list of songs to track down. 24 years later, I think it is close to the most awful song in my library – almost certainly the most awful cover. Take a listen, you be the judge. Its embarrassing.
