Marc AlmondMarc Almond, lead singer of Soft Cell and solo artist extraordinaire, is one of my pop idols. And he has a new album coming out this month! After Marc was in a horrible motorcycle accident in 2004, it was iffey whether or not he'd make it back to the public eye, but you can't keep a good queen down! After being discharged after only one month, Marc went through some serious rehabilition and I'm happy to say he's never sounded better. Check out his MySpace page to listen to three samples off the new album. There's not a week goes by that I don't play "Kept Boy," "Tainted Love" or "Baby's On Fire" on the ole iPod...

Who wouldn't have a soft spot for Tainted Love?

You know though, I tend to think of "Tainted Love" as a Soft Cell song though - not really a Marc Almond song... I should probably have used another example.

Funny story though - last night on the way home from a friend's house, "Tainted Love" came on the radio. Our daughter started singing along and says, "You know, I only know this song because of Bil. He plays it constantly." LMAO
