“Sex Dwarf” – Soft Cell

From 1981’s now-classic Soft Cell album “Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret” comes “Sex Dwarf,” the scandalous album track that that no doubt caused many parents to get apoplectic back in the day when their kids brought home the album due to their love for the smash single “Tainted Love.”  The song is legitimately creepy and the hard R-rated video the band shot for the song (with S&M gear and raw meat) is fairly disquieting.  That video (directed by Tim Pope) is easily found on YouTube, but I’m not posting a link to it, because you can find that on your own.  Actually, I discovered something that is WAY more disturbing … this is an online video created by some twisted genius who synced some Teletubbies video to the song.  Yes, everything in the video is G-rated, but when you watch the Teletubbies with the sounds of “Sex Dwarf,” trust me, this is a serious mindf–k that rivals any David Lynch or Alejandro Jodorowsky film.  Proceed at your own risk.

“Say Hello Wave Goodbye” – Soft Cell


Soft Cell’s best-known song in the States is “Tainted Love” and maybe, the notorious album track “Sex Dwarf” off their debut album “Non Stop Erotic Cabaret.” However, this terrific, sad ballad was a huge hit in England and has gradually become my favorite Soft Cell song over the years.
