Stop everything. Eating, driving, sleeping, whatever you're up to.

You're about to witness one of the greatest practical applications of memory-based technology ever created.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is a choir of floppy disk drives covering Soft Cell's 1981 cover of the 1964 Gloria Jones song, 'Tainted Love'.

And it is glorious.

It was created by YouTube user Gigawipf who is also responsible for the doing of version of the 'Inspector Gadget' theme tune amongst others...

An earlier version of this story wrongly identified the choir as being composed of hard drives. They are in fact floppy disk drives and for this error we are truly sorry...
