Klaus Nomi – You Don’t Own Me (1981)

Scroll down to content

According to Wikipedia, Rush Limbaugh plays this song during the gay news segment of his show probably because of Nomi’s thick German accent and he sings “Don’t tell me I can’t play with other boys.” As long as you don’t mind mind these sort of flamboyant songs, this can be a remarkably enjoyable experience for you! The original melody was catchy (I’m sure you’ve heard it before) and the instrumentation is crisp and sparkly. Nomi’s performance was probably not flamboyantly gay on purpose… he’s just doing some playful acting with his operatic voice. (OK, the end of the song sounds ridiculously gay… holy moly…) This is a real blast, though! [Source]
