Tainted love: Soviet style!

Don't tell anyone, but I think I might like this version even better than the original!

(*Am I the only nerd who noticed that one of the guards is wearing a Russian army cap instead of a German one?)

I think this just proves that I spend waaaaaaaay too much time surfing the Internet!

I can't play that for some reason... but I wonder if it's anything like Global Kryner?

I replaced the embed code with code from YouTube, which seems to be less buggy. Can you see it now?

I hadn't heard of Global Kryner so I looked them up and from what I saw / heard their music has a lot more German folk influence. This is very Russian sounding to me. They share a lot of the same instruments (accordeon and bass for example) but the tempo is different. Much faster and it speeds up as it goes along.

For some reason German Oom pa pa music makes me want to go postal, but the Russian stuff makes me want to dance!

totally funny :) But when being on the dancefloor in the middle of the night at some awesome party (and any party playing Tainted love is an awesome party), I'd still prefer the original.

And I didn't even notice the guards were wearing hats ;).

And that while you're 8 months pregnant! That really says something! :-)
