'Cause it hangs them up to see someone like you



Another weekend goes by so quickly, and we're now (having passed the mid-summer milestone) on the slow decline... not least because another week in the office starts here. Hey ho! - for me it's a slightly shorter one as, with the festivities of our "Gay Xmas" aka Gay Pride in London to look forward on Saturday, I have Friday off to finalise arrangements...

Kicking off on this Tacky Music Monday our countdown to The Big Day, who better to raise our spirits than "MegaBabs" herself? Here is Miss Barbra Streisand ("and Other Musical Instruments") with a suitably camp medley of Sing A Song and that seminal "gay anthem" Make Your Own Kind Of Music:



Nobody can tell ya
There's only one song worth singin'
They may try and sell ya
'Cause it hangs them up
To see someone like you

But you've gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along

You're gonna be nowhere,
The loneliest kind of lonely
It may be rough goin'
Just to do your thing's
The hardest thing to do

But you've gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along

So if you cannot take my hand
And if you must be goin'
I will understand

You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along


Have a good week, chums!

  1. What was she wearing - nasty frock and collar very odd.
    Any way.

    'You've gotta make your own kind of music
    Sing your own special song'

    And we will be doing that on Saturday along with a few thousand others

    1. It is HER song - but on a "Tacky Music Monday", I just had to do the MegaBabs version... Jx
