Gay Song Two …oh Daddy…

Gay Song Two …oh daddy…

 

Note: for this series of postings, the term 'Gay Song' refers to music written to/for/by or about Gay men or women. A second category also deals with music identified as Gay because it speaks to the heart of the Gay Experience.

 

So to make this easier, I will call them Gay in the 1st Degree (to/for/by/about), or Gay in the 2nd Degree (like Judy Garland singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow).

 

---


Ed Sheeran's phenomenal live performance/recording of "Be My Husband" falls under the heading of Gay Song in the 2nd Degree. He started out singing in clubs and this song became one of his standards, bowling audiences over with his passion and skill. For me, when he sings "Oh Daddy," he captures the heart of longing. Period. Incidentally, homophobia is alive and well, as after the release of this video, the hate-mongers rife among the anonymous names of the blogosphere started calling Ed the f-word. To his credit, he responded to reporters' questions with "love is love."

 

Thanks, Ed. This is an awesome Gay Song!

 


So, what do you think?

Great song, love is love and I don't listen to the shit people post online, especially when they are anonymous. Who cares what a 'no one' thinks. I'm just glad to see more songs, commercials, books, news etc. Out there about LGBT people.

I came across this song when I researched Nina Simone's 'Black is the color of my true love's hair'. It was pure coincidence but for me it was perfect. And of course this is good, this is Ed Sheeran! Thank you for reminding me of the video.

Thanks, Adi! I love feedback and participation. My fave Simone recordings are her versions of "I Love You, Porgy" - So amazing :)

Thanks for the heads-up, Def. Don't know what happened, but I re-placed the correct video link. Muah
