Hawkins The Power of Two - Indigo Girls What are your top favorite lesbian love songs? Here is the Joan Armatrading classic, The Weakness in Me.
lang recorded one on an album that is a tribute to Cole Porter by various pop artists. The song is "So in Love." You don't have to be lesbian, gay, or a grownup to love that one."Woman" ( - Rachael Yamagata "Under Water" ( or "Living Room" ( - Tegan & Sara You could cheat and get a pre-made CD ( The lyric, "I want into the temple," is not actually what it may sound like. It's an unborn soul eager to be born, reincarnated, into a new body. This might be considered cheating, but Concrete Blonde do a great cover of Jimi Hendrix's Little Wing without changing the gender. When I'm sad, she comes to me With a thousand smiles you know she sets me free Biggirl, LOL.
: D You've just invented a new subgenre, lesbian novelty songs.
If you're not familiar with Joan Armatrading's music, this would be a good place to start.
2) The Indigo Girls: Power of Two It's hard to pick just one song from lesbian duo, The Indigo Girls.
It was also hard to decide which of Melissa's songs to pick. It remains one of the best lesbian love songs of all time. Hawkins: Damn, I wish I was your Lover When I first heard "Damn, I wish I was your Lover" by Sophie B.
Hawkins, I had to find out who who was singing this sexy love song.
She hates the Joss Stone cover, since she changed it to "Fell in Love with a Boy".
I like the cover based on Stone's vocals, but I agree that it was a missed oppurtunity. She writes tons of songs about men - nothing about lesbians that I can think of (she's straight).
Actually, Holly Near was the first name that came to mind when I saw the thread title. Really, have none of the youngsters these days heard of her? It seemed like she was everywhere in the late '70s, but that was when I hung out in the queer part of town.
She was the first openly dyke performer that I know of since the early blues era, but in those days that meant she never broke out of the niche. Anybody remember "Dominique-nique-nique...": a lesbian love song to a guy?
The Power of Two is a testament to sticking it out through the good and hard times.
