What do Rihanna – S.O.S. and Pussycat Dolls – Tainted Love have in common?

Listen to Soft Cell – Tainted Love.

Ironic how both singles are out, sound about nothing like each other, yet have the same roots. Even then, Soft Cell’s version is a cover; the original was performed by Gloria Jones.

…and I first discovered this, when my Winamp randomizer said The Cure – Tainted Love was playing. Well, it did sound enough like Robert Smith for somebody to have mistakenly labelled it as such.
