Marylin Manson - ' Tainted Love'
Peak goth in popular culture moment, the jockes, the jacuzzi and your sexual awakening to Marylin Manson, good times
Donna Summer - 'Love to love you baby'

Actually, we're making it a Baker's Dozen with the addition of 'Woman Of Dark Desire', Swedish extreme metallers Bathory's loving ode to Elizabeth Bathory, the Hungarian noblewoman who reputedly bathed in virgin's blood - as you do - to maintain her youthful pulchritude. Ah, Quorthon, you romantic old fool!
