    Marc Almonds autobiography has "Tainted Love" haunting him throughout.

    And also the lack of publishing royalties from the single because against all advice they chose another cover version ("Where Did Our Love Go") for the b-side.

    I think Devo are probably best known for their own "Whip It" but maybe also for their cover of "I Can't Get No Satisfaction".

    Also who was that twat who did the slowed down cover of Tears For Fears "Mad World" which was in Donny Darko? Him.

    Very arguably Run DMC are most famous for covering "Walk This Way" by Aerosmith.

    I went to see almond a few years ago - great show, but most of the audience only really came alive for tainted love. Must be crushing really, specially with such a strong catalogue.

    If you're younger, then you should also know 'God will cut you down', wasn't that on an episode on Breaking Bad?
