This is a cover of a 1964 song by Soul singer Gloria Jones. She was good friends with Marc Bolan, and joined his group, T-Rex as a backup singer and keyboard player in 1974. They later married, and she was driving the car (a mini) at the time of the accident that killed him in Barnes Common, South London in 1976.
The original version by Gloria Jones became something of a hit on the UK Northern Soul circuit.
This was written by Ed Cobb, who was the manager of the Standells and the Chocolate Watchband, for whom he also wrote songs, including "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White." (thanks, nick - London, England)
Soft Cell started recording this as a "throwaway cover song." The choices were "Tainted Love" or a Frankie Valli song.
The whip-crack sounds were made on hand-held synth-drums.


Here I found this, I figured it would help stop the discussion..
