What's your favorite trans themed song?
« on: February 10, 2019, 01:12:57 pm »
My friend played "The Middle" by Jimmy Eat World the other day and said the song is a bit of a trans girl anthem. I sort of teared up the first time I heard it lol.

Other than that, "That's The Way" by Led Zeppelin hit me especially hard as a trans girl theme song.

Transgender Dysphoria Blues and True Trans Soul Rebel by Against Me!

This Is Me off The Greatest Showman soundtrack is basically written to be a queer anthem.

I'd heard the song before but never paid attention to the verses. Can totally see that as a trans anthem.

Here are the lyrics for any other older ladies like me that might not be familiar with the song.



Hey
Don't write yourself off yet
It's only in your head you feel left out or looked down on
Just try your best
Try everything you can
And don't you worry what they tell themselves when you're away

It just takes some time
Little girl, you're in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be all right

Hey
You know they're all the same
You know you're doing better on your own so don't buy in
Live right now
Just be yourself
It doesn't matter if that's good enough for someone else

It just takes some time
Little girl, you're in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be all right

It just takes some time
Little girl, you're in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be all right

Hey
Don't write yourself off yet
It's only in your head you feel left out or looked down on
Just do your best
Do everything you can
Don't you worry what their bitter hearts are going to say

Aofie reminded me of my favorite by mentioning Against Me.  The front woman is trans - Laura Jane Grace - she is a great spokesperson in my opinion for trans rights but anyway....

LJG - Miley Cyrus and Joan Jett did a cover of Androgynous that was originally done by the replacements.  The title is a little misleading as it really is a gender spectrum / trans song in my opinion.

One of my favorite songs.  :)

I've always thought this was a great song, even back in the '90s, but now that I'm transitioning, it has taken on a brand new meaning for me.  8) ;)



I just received not one, but two detachable penises (peni?) in the mail this past week, so this song has become even more relevant. ;D

Better than Caitlyn Jenner, but that's not a high bar...

Don't get me going on Caitlyn - There are so many people on this site I am sure some like her.  I'm not in that group.
I definitely give her points for courage - can't deny that.

Just about anything from Antony & The Johnsons. I think their live album Turning is a standout!
They must find it difficult, those who have taken authority as truth, rather than truth as authority.

"when I was a boy" by Dar Williams, its not really trans themed the song its about gender expectations society places on people. Its still a song I like, actually the whole album is good. Anyway here is the lyrics:

I won't forget when Peter Pan came to my house, took my hand
I said I was a boy
I'm glad he didn't check
I learned to fly, I learned to fight
I lived a whole life in one night
We saved each other's lives out on the pirate's deck
And I remember that night
When I'm leaving a late night with some friends
And I hear somebody tell me it's not safe, someone should help me
I need to find a nice man to walk me home
When I was a boy, I scared the pants off of my mom
Climbed what I could climb upon
And I don't know how I survived
I guess I knew the tricks that all boys knew
And you can walk me home, but I was a boy, too
I was a kid that you would like, just a small boy on her bike
Riding topless, yeah, I never cared who saw
My neighbor came outside to say, "get your shirt"
I said "no way, it's the last time I'm not breaking any law"
And now I'm in a clothing store, and the sign says less is more
More that's tight means more to see, more for them, not more for me
That can't help me climb a tree in ten seconds flat
When I was a boy, see that picture? that was me
Grass-stained shirt and dusty knees
And I know things have gotta change
They got pills to sell, they've got implants to put in, they've got implants to remove
But I am not forgetting
That I was a boy, too
And like the woods where I would creep, it's a secret I can keep
Except when I'm tired, except when I'm being caught off guard
I've had a lonesome awful day, the conversation finds its way
To catching fire-flies out in the backyard
And I tell the man I'm with about the other life I lived
And I say now you're top gun
I have lost and you have won
He says, "oh no, no, can't you see?"
When I was a girl, my mom and I, we always talked
And I picked flowers everywhere that I walked
And I could always cry, now even when I'm alone I seldom do
And I have lost some kindness
But I was a girl, too
And you were just like me, and I was just like you

To my fellow Warriors*:

Last year when I just started to come to grips with my diagnosis of gender dysphoria and before my acceptance of being transgender I was in an emotional desert feeling very alone.  I was attacked by thoughts and emotions I never had or understood before....then I heard this song and it has become my anthem. 

Now when I hear it I feel nothing but pride for myself and everyone I have met on this site.  I cry every time.

I posted the words on my thread.  Then Entropic Variable posted this incredible music video. 

I really wanted to post it here too but I am not as good as EV (she was able to load the actual music video on my thread) so you will have to use the hyper-link below (sorry for the ads).

I really hope to find it as emotionally inspiring as I did and constantly do every time.

Hugs,

Emma

Other than that, "That's The Way" by Led Zeppelin hit me especially hard as a trans girl theme song.

I agree with this above, this Zepp tune song resonates with me also.

One of my favorite trans themed songs is by Susan Vega "As Girls go", the guitar solo at the end is real bender...
