    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
    Agreed!

    Seems like only someone very insecure about their sexuality would switch over the gender pronouns to fit their preference. Like, who actually cares!?

    Yeah, it just seems to forced as well and obviously while your sexuality is nothing to be ashamed of not is it something that would be revealed by the way you sing a song, it seems more counterproductive than anything, it makes it seem like they're so desperately trying to show they're straight/gay lol

    Lily Allen's phenomenal cover of Britney Spears's womanizer. I never thought I could possibly like that song before Lily put her hands on it. :cool:

    "es una desgracia al nombre de Morrissey y los Smiths" :rofl:



    How about an interesting take on this Eagles classic?

    Nirvana nailed a whole bunch of covers in that session tbh.



    How about Canadian indie/pop singer Feist covering Nina Simone? I guess it's not really unexpected for basically anyone to cover Nina Simone, but not many do such a good job of it.
