I was listening to some live music a while back, when the musician, a guy, started to sing Janis Joplin's "Me and Bobby McGee." It occurred to me that there are some songs that men just should not sing. This is one of them. "I am woman (hear me roar)" and "You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman" could safely be added to the list. There have to be more.
By the same token, it seems like women can get away with singing "male" songs, like Joni Mitchell singing "Free Man in Paris." Maybe it is a lesbian thing. Anyone have an explanation? Anyone want to add to the list?
