TOP TEN GAY ANTHEMS OF ALL TIME

I love organizing things into these tidy little anally retentive lists. It's my dark secret. So now, with free time on my hands, I'll indulge:

TOP 10 80's GAY ANTHEMS:

1. "RESPECT"- ERASURE



2. "DON'T LEAVE ME THIS WAY"- THE COMMUNARDS (ref. below)



3. "JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH"- DEPECHE MODE



4. "TAINTED LOVE"- SOFT CELL



5. "REGRET"- NEW ORDER



6. "GIRLS ON FILM"- DURAN DURAN



7. "DON'T YOU WANT ME BABY"- HUMAN LEAGUE



8. "HEART OF GLASS"- BLONDIE



9. "THORN IN MY SIDE"- EURYTHMICS



10. "BIG IN JAPAN"- ALPHAVILLE





Disclaimer: Purely limited to my own taste.
Could I add more? Sure.
What about more variantions the list? (eg. Top Ten Gay Clubbing Anthems?) Stay tuned.

OMG!!

Miss 'Str8 Woman' :P

How can u even forget the biggest biggest mammoth anthem of all times?? :|

I aint too proud coz i don't know the song :(
But then, every gay guy in this world would know the lyrics of 'I Will Survive' by heart! Gloria Gaynor induced this confidence in the homosexual community with this song!


PS : Talking about your comment on Manav's blog (1body2souls), well... I would neva call the offer 'hollow' per say! See, for amny of the homosexual community, marriage is a sin that comes along with the social and peer pressure. Specially in India where homosexuality is a sin bigger than killing seven people on the road side due to drunken driving! So I can imagine what the poor guy must be going through. His offers were anything but hollow. Yeah, they were selfish I can say safely. But not hollow!

Luv,
Josh
