A few years ago You Tube user Gigawipf came up with the brilliant idea of rigging up floppy disk drives (and in some cases, hard drives) to make music. To date, he's used his contraption to play songs from Rammstein, Marilyn Manson, REO Speedwagon, Gotye, the Batman theme, and my personal favorite -- Deep Purple's "Smoke On The Water." Recently Soft Cell's Marc Almond caught wind that Gigawipf covered "Tainted Love" and was so intrigued that he added his vocals to it and uploaded it to his official You Tube account.  Bask in the glory below courtesy of  PolicyMic (via Salon):

Gloria Jones released the original version of "Tainted Love" (written by Ed Cobb) in 1965 and over the years the track has been covered by tons of artists including Coil, Inspiral Carpets, Marilyn Manson, and Paul Young. Soft Cell's version, released in 1981, has enjoyed the most commercial success.
