You know when you discover the original of a track that you didn’t realise was a cover? Here are two examples of said type of tracks; Gloria Jones’ ‘Tainted Love’ and Barrett Strong’s ‘Money’. Both are totally rad, but both have been totally overshadowed by their later covers.
The Gloria Jones track was originally recorded in 1965 and covered by Soft Cell in 1981. While the Barrett Strong tune has been covered by a shitload of artists, but The Flying Lizard’s version is the one you will see on rage and being played in indie bars. Enjoy!
