With the exception of songs like Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” or Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out,” very few pop songs written as a tribute to LGBT folks have ever reached the top of the charts. But that doesn’t mean the songs that weren’t so gay to begin with couldn’t end up being a huge part of LBGT history.
Today, we take a look at songs that didn’t start out as gay anthems, but somehow the cover versions ultimately became LGBT legendary tracks. To listen to whole episode visit www.feastoffun.com/plus and become a member.
I love your “research” episodes as I like to think of them. Thanks for the history on these songs. My favorite has got to be Petshop Boys version of Go West.
