    Does anyone else find it kind of annoying when musicians change the gender of the people in the songs they're singing? I get that they might want to 'fit' it more to themselves but I don't see the point?

    This annoys me too! Like why is is so difficult to sing about the same gender? Do they feel like it won't have the same emotional impact...?

    I know, and I feel it's kind of insulting to original intention of the song, also it can make it sound off you know? I mean, I'm gay but I sing songs about guys all the time lol

    Lana Del Rey & Barrie James O'Neil's cover of Summer Wine, originally by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood 
    I completely agree they did an awesome job of covering that song and their voices fit so nicely together.
