I don’t believe in coincidence. As I was taking the subway to hear a lecture on music and its role in the lives of the LGBTQ community, a tune randomly popped up on my Spotify shuffle mode: “Smalltown Boy” by Bronski Beat. To many of my straight friends, it’s a nice tune with a good eighties beat. Sadly to Kate Ryan, plastic queen of Eurodance, it’s a good song to turn into a cringe-worthy ballad. But to me and queers around the world, this song is a true anthem of gay liberation. Why is that?

Tame Impala cover Kylie’s “Confide In Me”

When one the best Australian bands covers one of the best songs from an Australian singer, magic can only happen! Listen to psyche-rock band Tame Impala covering Kylie Minogue‘s “Confide In Me” for Like A Version. The track is taken from her 1994’s eponymous fifth album.
