tainted nubs

and if you're waiting for me to post fucking soft cell's tainted love- it's not fucking happening, not on my lj dime. i loathe that song because i had to play it so much for decades - so, yes, it's gay as matching luggage as is marc almond but the original is better and a girl sings it- a black girl- and nothing is gayer than a real diva. gloria jones was the girlfriend to glam and thus goth icon marc bolan ie t rex. she was driving the car he died in. she was a member of his band but had a long music history before they came together which included writing for motown( she wrote ' if i were your woman' for gladys knight and the pips and the proto-disco ' i haven't stopped dancing yet' .).

the year i was born- 1964- and gloria jones- the original tainted love. we played it on goth night in the day instead of soft cell :



and because the song always reminds me of coil just go out and buy 'horse rotorvator' and 'love's secret domain'. just please do it.
