The Top 17 Homo Love Songs

For the gays, Valentine's Day doesn't have many classic pop songs that actively include at first blush. But we all have our secret faves - and if you look hard enough, there are quite a few gems out there. Zack Rosen, aka Indie Rock Fag, has compiled a very post-gay list on his  website for the next generation of homos, The New Gay. And any list that has an Electronic classic and Dusty's Breakfast In Bed on it is worth taking seriously. Then there's Antony and the Johnsons:

People seek out relationships for a lot of different reasons. Some are interested in sex. Others want companionship. Some people can't cook for shit and enjoy having a hot boyfriend with an endless mastery of vegetarian cuisine (not that I'm speaking from personal experience.) As a function of my age and good health, though, I never consider another impetus for love: to be cared for in your old age and on your death bed. That's probably why this song doesn't get played at very many clubs.

My fave? Nervously. You know who.
