Gay Anthem May 10, 2009

Posted by globejam in Uncategorized.

Today in Sunday Times on the front page is an article titled “Same sex couples ‘marry’ with approval of parents”  (I can’t find the link right now).  I don’t understand why this is headline news.  It’s not dated today, doesn’t have any location mentioned, doesn’t have any celebrities involved, has nothing to do with politics – don’t tell me the TOI has not enough material for the front page!

Anyway, when I read the article, this old Tamil song tune popped into my head.  So I decided to compose a gay anthem around it. It starts like this:

Radha, Radha, neeyum gay  
Kannan’um gay, naanum gay  
Radha,… Radha, neeyum gay

I am releasing this under Creative Commons. Feel free to use, reproduce (ha, ha), and expand on it. As an exercise, I request readers to add the next stanza. Go!
