Thread Name: Do male singers have all the best songs?
Subject: RE: Do male singers have all the best songs?
Never thought of Eric Burdon putting himself in the place of a male prostitute; it always just sounded natural enough to me to hear him as lamenting having squandered his money, and perhaps his health, hanging out at the HOTRS way too much; perhaps blaming those awful women for tempting him beyond what he could withstand.

Interesting "delimna" Ms. Mauve; in some instances could it be as simple as saying "Now I'm going to slip into a male persona for this one"? Lots of folks just do so automatically without feeling the need to say anything about it. Would that little disclaimer help keep you comfortable?
