glad that you liked it, Deborah

The breeze of the Atlantic is blowing. It's bringing something. Or maybe nothing.

Today, I found this rather obscure golden nugget on an old Eurythmics album. It's a kick ass tune that is really easy for me to dance to. It also has some rather mysterious lyrics that could have some gender bending implications.

"I need a Man"


I don't care if you won't
Talk to me
You know I'm not that kind of girl.
And I don't care if you won't
Walk with me
It don't give me such a thrill.
And I don't care about the way you look
You should know I'm not impressed
'cause there's just one thing
That I'm looking for
And he don't wear a dress.


I need a man
I need a man

Baby baby baby
Don't you shave your legs
Don't you double comb your hair
Don't powder puff
Just leave it rough

I like your fingers bare.
When the night comes down
I can turn it round
I can take you anywhere.
I don't need love
Forget that stuff
You know that I don't care

I need a man
I need a man

I don't need a heart breaker
Fifty-faced trouble maker
Two timing time taker
Dirty little money maker
Muscle bound cheap skate
Low down woman hater
Triple crossing double dater
Yella bellied alligator

I don't care if you won't
Talk to me
You know I'm not that kind of girl.
And I don't care if you won't
Walk with me
It don't give me such a thrill.
And I don't care about the way you look
You should know I'm not impressed
'cause there's just one thing
That I'm looking for
And he don't wear a dress.

@April

Given that Annie Lennox most likely is one of us, it might seem strange that she sings a song about wanting a "real man", instead some kind of genderqueer nonbinary crossdreamer.

Here's what I think: In this video Annie is NOT a cis woman singing about what she wants. She is an MTF crossdreamer playing the role of a drag queen. The wig, the make-up, the voice, it is all there. If this makes your head hurt, sleep on it ;)

And thanks for some great songs stefwah (he said as he headed for the itunes store).

Miley Cyrus is also one of us, although I must say she does not make much out of it expression wise anylonger. But that's up to her!  This video is all girl for me!

Jack, Clearly there is some gender angle going on here. The video is interesting because it's a very long way from Annie's usual fairly androgynous presentation. Combine that with the interesting lyrics here and the scenario you suggest makes a lot of sense.In any case, it makes for an amazing song for a trans girl to dance to.

Grrrrreat Stuff and great dancing!

(That bass line does something to you, doesn't it).

I had the pleasure of watching Eurythmics perform in Oslo a long time ago. This was actually not a stadium performance, but a much smaller locale (so small in fact, that Lennox was a bit miffed about it). So it was a very intimate performance. I love that band, and also much of what she did after the breakup.
