Thread Name: Do male singers have all the best songs?
Subject: RE: Do male singers have all the best songs?
One of the things I like most about folk/roots/traditional/whatever songs is the very fact that the performer's gender does not prevent them singing songs in which they temporarily adopt a different 'gender persona', or even re-frame the song so that you can interpret it, if you wish, from a non-heterosexual standpoint. Jim Moray singing 'Gilderoy' is a personal favourite in that vein.
