This year, instead of making upteen 1000 song playlists, I’ve decided to make twelve 1400 songs playlists, ideally long enough for me to get through one month without hearing the same song twice. They each have various themes and the one which I am currently working on is “Greatest 1400 songs”.
I completed the list a few days ago, but today a song popped into my head and I had to add it to my list.
It’s a track from the band Antony and the Johnsons, Antony Heagarty. Antony is transgender uses female references when describing herself. The track is titled “For Today I am a Boy”
Not especially complex lyrics, but the emotion Antony puts into the lyrics are what makes the song captivating.
