Soon, Everyone Will Have Covered “Tainted Love”

A guy named Ed Cobb spent literally fifteen minutes writing this song in 1964.  I wish I had his royalty cheques.

The Scorpions (!!!) are the latest to record a version for an album entitled Comeblack.  It’ll be out January 24.

    I took a listen just to get a good laugh but it's actually pretty damn good. Better than Van Halen Tattoo but what isn't.
