The 50 Gayest Songs of All Time

According to this Australian site—and who knows gay music better than those Down Under dandies? (Well, probably a lot of other folks, but play along for a minute, eh? Although over here, you can find some dissenters, who are adding their own ideas to the list.)

Looking over this list [see below], I find I like five (17, 22, 32, 36, 50) of the 50 tunes. Does that make me 10-percent gay? Or just a guy with discerning taste? One could debate the issue, literally, for minutes.

But seriously, I'm straighter than 6 o'clock (not that there's anything wrong with being gay). And this het mofo is wondering where David Bowie's “John, I'm Only Dancing” is on this list. Where's Lou Reed's “Walk on the Wild Side”? Pete Shelley's “Homosapien” [see vid below]? Soft Cell's “Sex Dwarf”? Something off the Frogs' It's Only Right and Natural? The entire Motörhead canon? (Hehe, just kidding fellas.)

Anyway, which tracks do you think are unjustly missing from this deeply flawed list of gayest songs ever?
