Music Gays Can Groove To

December 21, 2009 Leave a comment

I missed this last week and then the DC area’s biggest snowstorm in quite some time hit so I’ve been a little busy shoveling out of snow and drinking with friends. What else do you do on a snow day after all.

Zac Rosen of The New Gay put together a pretty fun “Best of 2009…” list.  This one, aptly titled: “The Indie Rock Fag: The 20 Queerest Indie Songs of 2009,” features artists who are either gay or who produce songs that strike a chord with many in the community.

The songs below are featured because they are either quality songs by out gay artists, or straight-penned songs that I feel have gay themes worth bringing above the surface. What unites them is they provide a window to the past, queer or otherwise, that is too often missing in coverage of contemporary gay culture.

My favorite from the list is  Cazwell’s terribly catchy “I Seen Beyonce…” I’ve included the video below. As Rosen puts it, “It slaughters a sacred gay cow.”

It really is a good mix of songs and there are probably a few artists you may not have heard of yet. Enjoy.
