Legendary Gay Anthem Singer Dies

Fri Oct 01, 2004 2:07 am

For the slightly older gay posters here...one of the Weather Girls has passed on. Originally backing singers for Sylvester, they had a massive hit with "It's raining men", one of the all-time great gay dancefloor and Pride anthems

OK...what did I miss? Since when was "It's Raining Men" a gay anthem???

I thought it was "I Will Survive"....oh...and "Somewhere" <---but only if sung by Streisand (?)

I guess I should throw out all my Outcast, Maroon5, and Velvet Revolver CD's.....

I'm free this weekend, maybe Emirates345 can come over and help me pick out my gay music requirements for 2005.

Jaspel -

No, I'm not interested, I just didn't realize that you played for the other team. Doesn't bother me one bit either way.

And how did you realise that now? I didn't say anything in the last few minutes... Besides, I don't know if I play for the "other" team, because I don't know which one you play for!  Big grin

Popular maybe, but great? I have to differ  Yeah sure

And if I hear another Abba megamix in a gay club, I think I'll scream...
