Thread Name: Do male singers have all the best songs?
Subject: RE: Do male singers have all the best songs?
Ride On is a Jimmy McCarthy song, it's non gender specific anyway, in traditional song the convention has always been not to change the gender, ie. men sing female type songs and vice versa, it's a pop music thing like Eric Burdon changing the gender on The Animals version of ' House of the Rising Sun ' thereby making himself a male prostitute.
