Gender-bending Song Covers
April 19, 2010 12:48 PM   Subscribe

I need examples of gender-specific songs covered by singers of the opposite gender. For instance, Jack White's cover of Dolly Parton's "Jolene".

The lyrics must not be changed. If the original female singer was waxing lyrical about her man, so too must the male cover singer, and vice versa.


When You Were Mine - Ani DiFranco, written by Prince
Wilder Than Her - Dar Williams, written by Fred Eaglesmith

The Sisters of Mercy covered Jolene, too, fwiw.

"You('ve) Really Got A Hold on Me" has done all sorts of gender jumping, starting with Smokey Robison and the Miracles, staying male for The Beatles, switching for The Supremes, back for the Temptations and straddling the line for She & Him. And that's just a sample.

Mad about the boy has been done by both genders.

House of the Rising Sun is a traditional song meant to be sung by women, about prostitution - but the most famous versions are sung by males, Bob Dylan and the Animals.

Yo La Tengo's cover of Bob Dylan's "4th Time Around" (the cover's singer is female)
Charlotte Gainsbourg and Calexico's cover of Bob Dylan's "Just Like a Woman"

Both are on the "I'm Not There" soundtrack, a collection of Dylan covers used in the biopic of the same name. I've only listened to the whole thing a couple of times; there are probably more that fit your criteria on there.

This maybe half fits: the Beatles' cover of "Boys," originally by the Shirelles. It doesn't technically satisfy your criterion of not changing the lyrics (they changed the first line from "My boy says when I kiss his lips" to "My girl says when I kiss her lips"), but the word "boys" stays the same (i.e. the Beatles didn't change it to "Girls"). Wikipedia talks about this.

I also seem to recall Nirvana's cover of Cher's "Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves" leaving the lyrics intact (which would be characteristic).

Picked up a boy just south of Mobile
Gave him a ride, filled him with a hot meal
I was sixteen, he was twenty-one
Rode with us to Memphis
And papa woulda shot him if he knew what he'd done
I never had schoolin' but he taught me well
With his smooth southern style
Three months later, I'm a gal in trouble
And I haven't seen him for a while
I haven't seen him for a while

Heartbreak Town
Long Time Gone (Wikipedia)
Top of the World (Wikipedia)

Heartbreak Town is actually pretty subtle, and you'd only really notice it if you paid attention to gender stereotypes. It's about someone packing up their SO and kid and going to Nashville, and the SO is the one carrying the baby, crying, hugging their friends, and kissing their momma.

Patty Griffin wrote Top of the World, but it's definitely also from a man's perspective.

As referenced above, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes has covered tons of songs originally sung by women about their heterosexual relationships with men.

I know this isn't helpful, but I'll never forget the moment I first heard Willie Nelson's version of "Someone to Watch Over Me," where the clever lines:

"Although he may not be the man some
Girls think of as handsome"

became this hunk of junk:

"Although she may not be the girl some
Guys think of as pretty"

Too many of these are just songs that were sung by one gender covered by another - there's nothing particularly gender-specific about them (though I'm sure Hounds of Love is about female puberty). I wonder how 'If I was Your Girlfriend' works covered by a woman.

I wouldn;t say the Amy Winehouse cover counts - 'Valerie' is clearly a song to a friend. Same with Boys of Summer - is there anything about that that makes it a particularly male narrative? (I haven't heard it for a few years.) Same with Nothing Compares 2 U (originally a male/female duet) and Come On Eileen.

I wondered about Kirsty MacColl's cover of A New England, but the lyrics are changed slightly to make it work from a female perspective.

I don't think it's a cover, but Rufus Wainwright's "The Art Teacher" ("I was just a girl then/And never have I loved since then/No, never have I turned to any other man...") is sung from the female perspective. And, of course, he covered the entire Judy Garland -- Live at Carnegie Hall concert.

I agree with mippy that many of the suggestions don't seem count -- though the question wasn't that clear about what constitutes "gender-bending." Other songs that don't seem gender-specific or sexual-orientation-specific: "You Really Got a Hold on Me," "I Will Survive."

However, "Come on Eileen" does count -- the song is blatantly sexual toward a woman, originally sung by a man, and with no lyrics changed for the cover sung by a woman.

This may not count for your purposes, but Travis covered Katy Perry's "I kissed a girl" from the fictional perspective of a gay man kissing a woman for the first time. (I also have a surprisingly good version of them covering Britney Spears's "Hit Me Baby" but I don't know if there are any explicit gender references in that one.)

Fiona Apple did a chilling and brilliant live cover version of Elvis Costello's "I Want You", which he supposedly said was better than his own. She changes 'he' to 'she' in a couple of cases but leaves in a 'young man' or two.

Joan Baez covered Dire Straits's "Brothers in Arms", which is more about war than love so may not suit.

I have various covers of Cyndi Lauper's "Girls just wanna have fun", including by Wakey!Wakey!, where the genders aren't changed.

Hmm, I have a large collection of cover versions, but it's surprisingly hard to find covers where they don't change the gender references. That's all I can find in my iTunes for now...

Pretty obscure, I admit, but there is a version of the Nick Cave song Where the wild roses grow (or Wild rose or something like that), a duet, where the female part is sung by another male band member. I'm pretty sure it's on the B Sides and Rarities collection. The female part is definitely meant to be sung by a woman (and was most popularly sung by Kylie Minogue).

There is also a song by Paul Kelly called Everything's turning to white which is quite specifically sung from a woman's point of view. There is a live recording of it I've heard where he introduces the song with "I have to change sex for this one". I'm not sure if this counts, however, as I imagine he wrote it to sing himself.
