I was just thinking about the 1981 Rick Springfield song “Jessie’s Girl”. In case you don’t know, some people often mishear the song as saying “I wish that I was Jessie’s girl…” In deference to Mr. Springfield, don’t worry. It definitely does not say that. But still, I was also thinking. Has anyone ever considered doing a gay version of the song? You would only have to switch around a pronoun or two to get it that way.
Because, you know, as a gay man, I like it when there are songs that are a kind of anthem to gay people and gay rights. But such songs are so few and far between. I mean what else is there? Katy Perry’s I Kissed a Girl is the only other one I can think of now in any event.
But back to my original question: Has anyone ever considered doing this version. But I would really like to hear it if they did.
