    Camouflage (That Smiling Face, The Great Commandment, Love is a Shield)

    Human League (Love Action)

    What other artists and songs do you like?

    I bet many who hear Camouflage will think they're listening to Depeche Mode. Even though they are German, they sound completely English to me. Would be interesting to make a bet with friends on that.





    There are many videos for Love Action, but the best sounds are on the not so interesting visuals, so here goes

    All good selections in this thread. We could take them all and create a great segment for Sirius/XM 1st Wave.

    Soft Cell might have the most famous cover of Tainted Love and it's probably the most famous cover of any song ever, but my favorite version is by Coil with vocals by John Balance. Marc Almond of Soft Cell made an appearance in the video.
