Yes to those musical songs, even though they’ll probably leave in the first round or so.

Love almost that whole list.

I think the ultimate LGBT song is Finally by CeCe Penniston - it's the theme song to Priscilla - Queen of the Desert (which is the ultimate LGBT movie) and it's brilliantly camp.

Would love for something out of the blue to win it though like Thelma Houston, KD Lang or Melissa Etheridge.

PS cheapthrills, you need to amend KD's name :)

No Dead Or Alive - You Spin Me Round or Divine's ''You Think You're A Man''...Billboard's a flop.

Also it’s only one “n” in Peniston.

OK, I updated the typos, even though I can't believe it's actually Peniston - gay pride indeed.

I'll start this soon.

Voted.
Franklin’s music profoundly touched and changed the world, because over and over it offered that bridge to salvation, to freedom.
