Beating Off Together: 150 Gayest Songs EVER (The List) Comments (19)

Gay-Homosexuality-video-Modern-Rocketry
CazwellWhat makes a song "gay?"

Is it the singer's real-life sexual persuasion, the explicit or implicit (and positive or negative) lyrical content, how it has been embraced by the gay community, being inextricably linked with its homo-erotic video...or something else?

Or all of the above?

Judy-Garland"Wait...'YMCA' is about more than just hittin' the gym?"

My picks for the gayest songs of all time follow below in alphabetical order by artist. There is also a separate post (with a crazy load time) with the songs arranged somewhat creatively for your listening/viewing enjoyment.

Feel free to tell me what am I missing, in both senses of the question...

Beth Ditto The Advocate
Gossip queen Beth Ditto opens up to The Advocate as she promotes her revealing memoir, Coal to Diamonds, saying that she has suffered from sarcoidosis, the deadly disease that killed Bernie Mac:

Beth Ditto Coal to Diamonds lesbian"I'm so lucky that my disease was so fucking weird and with a really strange version of it because the doctors were superinterested. They would comp things, they would give me a discounted rate because it was so weird that they were intrigued—and thank God for that. I know that sounds totally weird. It was surreal."

Ditto also writes about being molested by an uncle, battling depression and embracing her sexuality and her body size in what sounds like the queer read of the year.

Loves Madonna, Gaga = Ditto Comments (0)

Beth Ditto Gossip
Beth Ditto is flashed images of various divas and gives her impressions for French TV. On the subject of Madonna, she says:

"Perfect icon, perfect icon. And great...good, good, she's had good work done."

Of Lady Gaga, she says:

"The Madonna of my nieces and nephews."

Her nieces and nephews are "six and seven," so take that for what it's worth, but it didn't sound bitchy.

We're Havin' Big Fun: A Review Of Gossip @ Terminal 5 Comments (10)

QuickTime PlayerScreenSnapz005Gossip girl

Last night, I got last-minute tickets to Gossip at Terminal 5. Who haven't I seen there in recent times—I've enjoyed Lady Gaga, Scissor Sisters, Erasure, Yaz...the list goes on. Grabbed my friend Craig and we had a great time, even though my hate affair with G.A. continues.

Longer snippets in the middle of the vid

It actually wasn't grotesquely crowded, but we wound up behind a pair of attention magnets (round guy in gold lamé, among other things; tall guy with Adam Lamberty hair) who happened to take up a lot of space standing still, let alone doing what they were doing, which was shaking their raised fists through every song (at least at first). It's a rock concert, so what are you gonna do, complain? Ask people to enjoy themselves less? Might as well wear a button-up shirt with "OLD MAN" on the back. But it sucks to stand behind a girl who has to hold her hand in the air and wave it in large circles all around her head, barely missing yours and everyone else's. It was all very, "We GET this! We LOVE this!" more so than just pure personal enjoyment. To the boys: No disrespect intended and I admire your self-expression...I just don't ever want to stand behind it again. xoxo

GOS_Rankin12_537312049-1Welcome to Gossip's "Perfect World"—read on for details

Then a couple of tiny girls moved ahead and past us and considering my history of serious issues with shorties pushing their way in front of me at concerts, I couldn't resist joking to Craig, "And here come the short girls." Unfortunately, one heard me and called me on it. I felt bad! I'm usually really good about talking trash inches from a person's face without them hearing, and in this case it wasn't really trash since as she pointed out she wasn't stopping in front of me or bugging me in any way. Sorry, woman.

But the good news is we soon shifted and wound up in front of the human trees and I had no more distractions.

Anyway, we had shown up in time to catch opening act The Ssion (say "SHUN" as in "passion") even though we'd missed Creep (who had the only good T-shirt for sale of all three acts). I actually loved The Ssion—very dancey and with a total genderfuck vibe on stage. Their sound is very catchy and very Book of Love. I'm now humming "My Love Grows in the Dark" every 10 minutes.

IMovieScreenSnapz001I was tickled to recognize that their dancing boys recreated Madonna's 1982 track-date choreography during the stand-out song "Clown" (which is already a dead ear-ringer for "Holiday"). The band also wound up incorporating some lines from "Keep It Together". (The strawberry blond dancing boy was fucking hot, BTW, in his Castro clone cut-offs.)

Taking A Page From Madonna Comments (15)

PreviewScreenSnapz001
Beth Ditto, with her fun new "I Wrote the Book" music video, offers a virtual remake of Madonna's "Justify My Love." I think it would be great to have artists do actual remakes of videos, just like they were movies. This is about as close as it gets.

Behind-the-scenes footage of Beth Ditto's May 2009 cover shoot with Out. I don't have the issue yet, but it looks like it's Gossip-worthy.
