Have you heard of Jay Brannan? I had not, until I came across him this week while blog hopping (can't remember which blog, sorry) so I had to google him. Take a listen and see if you like him, as much as I do.

Stephen have you read the lyrics of this song?

housewife
music and lyrics by jay brannan

two bodies pressed together
two boys are falling hard
the smell of sweat and leather
a kinky greeting card

crazy about each other
we both have fucked up pasts
but when we are together
we have a fucking blast

chorus
i wanna be a housewife
what’s so wrong with that
i wanna be a housewife, yeah
and that’s just where i’m at

i’m making guacamole
he’s working on the car
when he grills turkey burgers
he knows i like them charred

i like to wash the dishes
i like to scrub the floors
don’t mind doing his laundry
what are boyfriends for

chorus
i wanna have his baby
i wanna wear his ring
he drives me fuckin crazy
i am his everything

chorus

2nd chorus
i wanna be a housewife
what’s so wrong with that
can’t wait ‘til he’s in my life, yeah
cuz we haven’t met

we haven’t met yet…
we haven’t met yet…

Peter, love the lyrics and especially the transition of the video, from the beginning backdrop of where the song begins and then it ends back where it began with the ending lyrics:

can’t wait ‘til he’s in my life, yeah
cuz we haven’t met

we haven’t met yet…
we haven’t met yet…

sort of fits, doesn't it?

java, glad you like it. Sorry, I haven't taken the time to properly welcome you to the Closet. New friends are always welcomed, please drop by anytime, the light is always on and the door although not fully open is always left slightly ajar for visitors and friends. (((hugs))) for comments.

Hello! Peter sent me! *grin*
Glad I found you!

As for Jay, Are you familiar with his other songs? I downloaded four songs from his CD(?) entitled "Unmastered": "Half Boyfriend", "Body's a Temple", "26-hour Day", and "Unstable Boy". I first encountered him via NewNowNext videos on Logo. It was the song "Body's a Temple". "Half Boyfriend" is kind of neat, too. I was not familiar with this one. I will need to look for it.

lemuel, I'll have to give Peter a (((HUG)) for sending you over. Welcome to the "Closet" feel free to rummage around, the light is always on, the door always slightly ajar for new friends to become old friends. As for as Jay, I've only recently became familiar with him/his work. Some of the songs are kinda raw but I like his style, his writings, and of course, he is easy on the eyes. ;)

I think he's good...he has some raw songs..but they have personal feeling.

He is easy on the eyes for sure. :-)

steve and warren, I'm sure some critics would say a little too personal, but we all have critics. When he starts the chorus in the above video,(i wanna have his baby) his smile says it all, cute, sexy, just a bit michevious............

Stepeh...I just listened to it again..and "his smile" does tell it all..

Your right "cute", "sexy" and "full of fun"
