Thread Name: Do male singers have all the best songs?
Subject: RE: Do male singers have all the best songs?
Mauvepink, of course I don't mind if you use my "tweaked" version of The Town I Loved So Well. If I wanted to keep it as my own special secret, I wouldn't have posted it here, and anyway it's years since I've sung it.

Reading through this thread reminds me: a female friend and I used to sing a "girly" version of Keith Marsden's "Old Peculier". It had lines like "For PMT some girls take rum....." and "some keep the Baileys handy". I'll spare you any more details, because I don't want to undermine such a well respected song, except to say that the bits about womanising sound much naughtier if you sing them as a woman about men ("Forget the men who said they might, and think on those who did, girl!")
