Default women who sing male POV songs by men, without changing the gender-specific pronouns


This is the 2nd edit of this post.


The videos in the original OP were not "spoilered." In the 1st re-edit they were. Now in the 2nd re-edit—or 2nd edit—I've put in the names as per my later posts.

I've also added (I think) 26 more videos, among them:

And I Love Her - The Beatles (cover)
Eight Days A Week - The Beatles (girls band cover)
If I fell (The Beatles cover)
Please Please Me - The Beatles (girls band cover)
Ticket To Ride - The Beatles (cover)
Lez Zeppelin - Rock'n roll - LIVE PARIS 2013
Lez Zeppelin performing "The Ocean".
【Zepparella】 Bring It On Home (Concord - 10/7/17)
ALYONA (THE OCEAN) LED ZEPPELIN COVER with Chris Slade (AC/DC)
JILLIAN RAE - the Ocean [Led Zeppelin cover] @ 7th Street Entry
Lady Zep (a medley of Rock 'n' Roll, Immigrant Song, Communications Breakdown, The Ocean, She's Just a Aoman)
Whole Lotta Love - Moby Chick
Dollface ~ Walk This Way (Aerosmith) Cover
ThundHerStruck "Shook Me All Night Long"
Chick Quest – Savant Garde (Music Video) | Heartbreaking Bravery
CCR Susie-Q
Susie Q (Creedence Clearwater Revival Cover) - by ILARIA
Jimmy Buffett- Margaritaville cover
Sister Golden Hair - America (cover)
Dollface ~ My Sharona (The Knack) Cover
Acoustic cover of Teenage Kicks by The Undertones
Fiona Apple - Angel (Jimi Hendrix Cover) 1997
Izy Riff - Angel (Jimi Hendrix) Cover
Looks That Kill, Motley Crue female cover
So Projet Gabriel - Steam (Peter Gabriel tribute band)


I'll probably remove this italicized message in a few weeks.



Also included are (generally) gender-specific proper nouns, and/or where a good majority of people giving a decent listen to a song would agree that she's (or they're, in the case of a group of women) singing about another woman (or women).

Of course (many of) these songs are spiced with romance and/or eroticism (and/or, perhaps, love too):
"Something in the way she woos me...,"
"She told me to come, but I was already there."




from a thread of mine in another forum: women who sing male POV songs by men, without changing the gender-specific pronouns

Perhaps the best replies to my posts in this thread are: #21 and #32.

Lez Zeppelin

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lez_Zeppelin

Possibly the best part of this 11:19 video is the first 40 seconds or so when they do a great rendition of a part of Bring It On Home. (Though, unfortunately perhaps, female-Jimmy-Page doesn't play a double neck guitar in any of these videos.)
Spoiler for Lez Zeppelin - Whole Lotta Love - live Cologne 2007 - by b-light.tv:

Spoiler for Zepparella - Ramble On - 2013:

While I prefer Lez Zeppelin's 40 seconds as it's hard hitting, blues fans might prefer this. Mind you, the blues here sounds a little funkified.

Dude, 75 YouTube embeds in one post is waaaaaaaaaaay too much. Put some of that in a spoiler tag for the sake of those with crappy computers. Rule of thumb is like 5 videos or less.

Actually after viewing some of these my gaydar makes me wonder if some of these aren't lesbian cultural appropriation. Or my gaydar's broke

Edit: wait you put Veruca Salt in there, that's cool. That band has more gay innuendoes than Buffy and Faith
That Somebody song is too soppy for me though

(my 30th post)


My number of embeds was mentioned in Political Discussions for Adults Political Discussions for Adults (page 141)

If I had my way, I'd post it, but apparently, I can't link here, I can only embed. Pity.

While I don't want to cramp the styles of tablet or phone users—or desktops weaker than the one I bought used and am using—I wonder if the technological singularity that's reportedly just over-the-horizon will be able to handle 75 Youtube videos—I don't look forward to seeing a lot of stuff one would have to click to just see the names of the videos.

Can anybody show me an examples of posts with videos with spoiler tags?

I hope this is not a problem, because less than 50 hours after joining this site, I've taken a liking to it.

Took me awhile to like it myself until I finally noticed the obvious about her covering that song.

Another fantasy of that song is a remake of the song where in the guitar-solo-of-sorts they take a feature from Tubular Bells and instead have lots of stringed instruments playing that riff: guitar, double-speed guitar, slightly distorted electric guitar, mandolin, violin, banjo, erhu, et al.

I searched "cultural appropriation" here:

Cultural Identity
The Lounge

Cultural Imperialism and the Homogenization of the Western World
Current Events, Philosophy, & Religion

The International Cultural Exchange
The Lounge

I doubt 10% of those in the videos—to pull a number out of the air—are lesbian. Of course "lesbian" like "gay" might be constructions, or sticking to a word I'm more sure of using, abstractions—gender and orientation fluidity and all of that.

Literotica has one in GB that's 3 pages long:
Cultural appropriation
I enter page two, #47 post of the thread.
In #64th I put in a lot of politically correct pics.

Dude that's a far more serious answer than my comment deserved : )

Spoiler for example:


Plus even if tech wasn't an issue, people are more likely to gloss over your posts if it seems like there's more video than input. We want to hear what you have to say, we can look up the videos ourselves if we need to. On that subject I don't think that anyone is really interested in your other forum. If you want to make similar threads, just let the MB version be its own thing. Glad you're liking the site man, hoping to see you stick around.

Oh and you are actually able to link if you like, we just have an auto-parse function for youtube videos that make that kind of a pain.
