Music Monday: Gender Bending Covers

by Sean Adams

 

Happy Music Monday, everyone. Scott is enjoying a little nap in the soundproof prison that I have constructed for him, which means I get to take over for a week. Pretty cool for me, huh, Scott? What's that? I can't hear you. Hahahahahahaha. That joke gets me every time. Anyway, I've decided to devote this post to one of my favorite things in music: gender bending covers! Guys redoing a girls' songs and girls redoing guys' songs. (DISCLAIMER: this isn't about gender roles or about making a statement. I just like fun covers.)

Cake covering Gloria Gaynor - I Will Survive (one NSFW lyric)

 

What we have here is the greatest woman-done-wrong-but-she-ain't-gonna-take-it song ever written, re-rendered in monotone semi-singing and laid over a funky, trumpety beat. Say what you will about Cake, they always know what they're trying to do, and goshnamit, they do it darn well. A word of warning: one swear word has been inserted into this version, so if the quick utterance of an f-bomb is enough to put you on the s-bomb list, move along.

See you after the jump for some more!
