It’s #NewMusicMonday and this is the first mash-up of the New Year – Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love” meets Iggy Pop’s “The Passenger”:

The Passenger/Tainted Love

I am the passenger and I ride and I ride
I ride through the city’s backside
I see the stars come out of the sky
Yeah, they’re bright in a hollow sky
You know it looks so good tonight

I am the passenger, I stay under glass
I look through my window so bright
I see the stars come out tonight
I see the bright and hollow sky
Over the city’s a rip in the sky
And everything looks good tonight

Singing La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la …

Sometimes I feel I’ve got to
Run away I’ve got to
Get away from the pain you drive into the heart of me
The love we share seems to go nowhere
And I’ve lost my light for I toss and turn I can’t sleep at night

Once I ran to you (I ran), now I’ll run from you
This tainted love you’ve given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that’s not nearly all
Oh…tainted love
Tainted love

Now I know I’ve got to run away I’ve got to
Get away, you don’t really want any more from me
To make things right, you need someone to hold you tight
And you think love is to pray
But I’m sorry I don’t pray that way

Once I ran to you (I ran), now I’ll run from you
This tainted love you’ve given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that’s not nearly all
Oh…tainted love
Tainted love
