Male Singers I Always Thought Were Chicks Until I Recently Saw The Videos And Then I Was Scared To Blog Any More In This Scary World

What better way is there to get back into blogging than by posting something really high-brow so here are videos that I recently discovered were male singers.

The first is The Communards’ cover of Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes‘ soul classic Don’t Leave Me This Way. It became the best selling single in UK in 1986. The lead singer, Jimmy Somerville has such a deceptively high pitched falsetto voice that when Sarah Jane Morris comes in as co-vocalist the contrast makes her sound like Johnny Cash with a sore throat.

Note the awesome dance moves and the chick on drums:

The next is Feargal Sharkey’s post Undertones hit A Good Heart. Here are some semi-interesting facts about Feargal Sharkey that you may not know:

  • He’s the top result on Google for the name “Feargal”.
  • I’m pretty sure was he was Kyle Reese in 1984’s The Terminator or at least he should have been because that would’ve been hilarious.
  • His haircut inspired “The Rachel“.
  • Of all the Feargals in the world, he’s my favourite.

Note the awesome dance moves and the chick on drums:

To summarise: best post ever about nothing factually accurate? Why, yes. Yes it is. So, missed me?

  1. Um, just the fact that you talked about Feargal Sharkey AND The Communards in one post has now forever endeared me to your blog. Next time, can we go to Chris Rea and Midge Ure as well? Those are two good ones for this category I think…
    (Just started a blog on here yesterday – is this where I tell you about it, or is that tacky blog behavoir?)
    (Well, it’s
    (So tacky.)

  2. Confusion. He kinda looks like Michael Stipe from REM.

  3. Woah… woah, woah!!!

  4. Could these two songs be considered guilty pleasures? I love them!
