    If sexually I am attracted to men (only "huge ones") much more than to women, I much prefer female artists.

    here are two queens of the european "gay culture"

    Mina, "la regina della canzone italiana" !

    "Volami nel cuore"

    YouTube - MINA "Volami nel cuore"

    in the second song, Mina is very hot , she is claiming for her partner's arms, body, kisses....and cock ! "again, again, again"...says the song !

    "Ancore, ancora, ancora"


    YouTube - Mina Ancora ancora ancora (1978)



    In a total different style, here is the queen of 'la chanson poétique française", best female songwrier and singer : Barbara


    Le sommeil (sleep)

    http://it.youtube.com/watch?v=Ve8lRNYko7

    L'aigle noir (in a very poetical way, it talks about her rape by her father ! Yes, yes ! she admitted it just before dying in her "mémoires")

    YouTube - Barbara - L'Aigle Noir

    Mina is said to be the "tiger of Cremone" and Barbara "the black eagle" !

    What are your divas ?

    A little 'tragedy', it seems, is necessary in the life of any true diva... and for me, Dalida communicated that most effectively through her songs as well:

    ---> YouTube - dalida live "je suis malade "

    The diva I grew up with as a child in the Middle East was Lebanese superstar Sabah... little did I imagine that she would still be performing and enjoying huge success after an intense amount of plastic surgery (not to mention eight marriages!) at age eighty in 2007! Here's one of her more recent hits, a duet with newcomer Rola, which really plays up Sabah's diva status:

    ---> YouTube - Rola & Sabah (Yana Yana)

    As for a little German 'old school', I couldn't leave out Swedish-born Zarah Leander, whose songs telling of her sexual desires were written primarily by gay men, using her as a means of articulating their own desires at a time when such things simply couldn't be spoken aloud. Here she asserts her hopes and longings ("there are so many in this world, and I love every one of them who pleases me!") to her stuffy husband in 1938!

    ---> YouTube - zarah leander nur nicht aus liebe weinen

    From Barbara I prefer Gottingen, and specially since I learned the story around the song.

    Astonishing. The shots seem in soft focus, but, for my eyes, if she's 80, I'm a bisexual Moravian aardark.

    If one compares the way she looked at the beginning of her career to the way she looks now, however, one would probably never even guess one was looking at the same person. :rolleyes: Some might say she opened the floodgates for 1001 astonishingly enhanced Arab chanteuses.

    A 1951 Egyptian advert, and a photo from her 80th birthday party this year --->
