When I first heard this song, it gave me jitters; not sure why. Then one day I saw it listed under one-hit wonders and had to re-listen to it. I still didn’t understand the song but I don’t get the jitters anymore. :P

This was the second single by Soft Cell released in 1981. Soft Cell consisted of vocalist Marc Almond and instrumentalist David Ball. They remade the 1965 Gloria Jones version in the hopes of getting a successful song out. Indeed this became a superhit single.





Lyrics:

Sometimes I feel I've got to
Run away I've got to
Get away
From the pain that you drive into the heart of me
The love we share
Seems to go nowhere
And I've lost my light
For I toss and turn I can't sleep at night

Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I'll run from you
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Oh...tainted love
Tainted love

Now I know I've got to
Run away I've got to
Get away
You don't really want any more from me
To make things right
You need someone to hold you tight
And you think love is to pray
But I'm sorry I don't pray that way

Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I'll run from you
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Oh...tainted love
Tainted love

Don't touch me please
I cannot stand the way you tease
I love you though you hurt me so
Now I'm going to pack my things and go
Tainted love, tainted love
Tainted love, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Tainted love, Tainted love, Tainted love
Tainted love

Here’s the Gloria Jones Version:
