Title: Cherry Lips (Go Baby Go!)
Album: Beautiful Garbage
When I first heard this song, I simply liked it for its musical appeal. However, when I happened to look up the lyrics, it was perhaps the queerest song I had ever heard (with the exception of Lick It by God-des She, but that’s a different story altogether). It is about a boy who looks like a girl, a girl so beautiful it is almost unreal. When the chorus goes “You’re such a delicate boy/In this hysterical world/Of an emotional landslide/In physical terms”, you know exactly what they are talking about, about subverting gender norms and living to tell the tale.
Thanks to Jessica for the original recommendation. Really, you couldn’t have picked a queerer song, and probably by accident too.
