It’s Almonds voice – I just find it utterly histrionic. Not sure the clarinet was a good choice either TBH. But, horses, courses, etc. Ironman February 10, 2015 at 1:32 pm I’m with Tim all the way here. This song is far more authentic than Tainted Love and reflects the band’s identity perfectly. And I am a big fan of Marc Almond’s voice.

His Scott Walker covers are great as well. DocBud February 10, 2015 at 2:12 pm Each to their own, but in my opinion it is complete and utter bollocks. Ironman February 10, 2015 at 2:37 pm David Gray is fine, but Marc Almond was meant for this song. He oozes a mixture of sleaze and wistfulness. theoldgreenfascist February 10, 2015 at 7:21 pm It’s crap.
