Notes[edit]

The US edition, released on Mercury Records in 1999, features an additional remix of Tainted Love (1999 Club 69 Future Mix) with a running time on 14:31. It was later withdrawn under pressure by Marc Almond who objected to the inclusion of this new remix.

All songs written by Marc Almond and David Ball unless otherwise noted.
