Marc Almond adds vocals to floppy disk drive rendition of classic hit Tainted Love (video)

Singer Marc Almond has added a vocal track on top of a video of a box of floppy disk drives playing a rendition of Tainted Love. He had a worldwide hit with the song when in Soft Cell and after friends highlighted the original viral clip, he couldn't resist signing over the top.

"Several people showed me the brilliant floppy drive rendition of Tainted Love by Gigawipf on YouTube so I thought it might be fun to add the vocal," he said.

We reckon somebody should start a campaign to get this specific version to the top of the pop charts where it belongs. After all, the UK charts are soon to accept digital downloads and streamed tracks into the official Top 40.

Tainted Love was originally recorded in 1964 by Gloria Jones - a definitive Northern Soul classic and much-loved by Mods and scooter boys everywhere. Soft Cell made it an international hit with their 80s cover version. We reckon the combination of unnecessary computer hardware and ageing popstar is the perfect mix for a revival.
