What are some songs about transvestites?

Asked by zephyr826 (5600points) February 6th, 2009

I was talking with some of my students about prom songs. Someone mentioned that they thought most girls looked like Drag Queens at prom, and then the discussion veered off to songs about transvestites. My personal favorites are “Lola” by the Kinks, and “Take a Walk on the Wild Side”, by Lou Reed. Are there any other fun ones?

kevin barnes of of montreal‘s stage persona (or whatever) is a she-male, if that’s what you’re looking for. haha
i’m thinking you could find some interesting ones by of montreal. the one that comes to mind is wicked wisdom.
“I’m just a black she-male. And I don’t know what you people are all about”

do you teach a class? it sounds like one i’d love to be in haha

Ew at the term “she-male.” Not usually one that people choose to self-identify with!

Anyway. I love wikipedia lists. This isn’t specifically cross-dressing-related, but there’s some stuff included:

I think Antony and the Johnsons have a few related tunes, possibly Baby Dee too.

Yeah…she-male is more about porn and less about people.
