Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week: Soft Cell

The award for the week goes to Soft Cell, and the feature song is Tainted Love.

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

(chorus)
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
Tainted love
Oh…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
Tainted love
Oh…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 gonna to pack my things and go

Tainted love (ooh) tainted love
Tainted love (ooh) tainted love
Tainted love (ooh) tainted love
Tainted love (ooh) tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Tainted love (ooh)
Tainted love (ooh)
Tainted love
Tainted love

There is an interesting early demo of the song on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsMz9vIaLwQ&fmt=18 which sounds a fair bit different to the released version of the song.

Guilty as charged

It’s 19 past 8, and people from Deniliquin to Wangaratta and beyond now all know that I still watch Humphrey on the television!

Michael Parkinson on 2CC

I note from Mark Parton’s twitter feed that he has retired UK television talk show host Michael Parkinson joining him at some stage this week. I probably won’t be in a position to listen to it live, so I hope they podcast it.
