Dope or Nope ...

Soft Cell was a band that had one major hit in the 1980's, called "Tainted Love." Back then, radio stations would play this song, and go right into another Soft Cell song - which was a remake of a song by The Supremes "Baby, Baby, Where did our love go ..." Nowadays when Tainted Love is played, many stations don't include this addition, and just play "Tainted Love." This is very similar to what INXS did with "Need You Tonight/Mediate." And, also quite similarly, most radio stations only play "Need You Tonight."

So, what are your thoughts on this - is it dope or nope to play only the main song and not the additional piece?

Or like The Wall going into Young Lust.

I think it's just plain Nope to play Soft Cell.

Sandi - Soft Cell is good stuff ... I'm a fan of 80's New Wave.

Alaina - Where have you been?!?!?!?

I pretty much like tainted love, so it could stand on it's own over the radio.
