Bob Dylan has recorded a gay love song for LGBTQ gay wedding anthems collection
Legendary musician Bob Dylan covers “She’s Funny That Way” on LGBT+ gay wedding anthems collection. The legendary musician covered the classic “She’s Funny That Way”, originally performed by Gene Austin in 1929 and later by Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole.
Bob Dylan is among six acts appearing on a new collection EP that features “reimagined” versions of traditional wedding songs for gay couples. Universal Love opens with Dylan’s rendition of the 1929 great American songbook classic “She’s Funny That Way”, reimagined as “He’s Funny That Way”.
Speaking about Dylan’s contribution to Universal Love, producer Rob Kaplan told The New York Times: “It wasn’t just ‘Yes, I’ll do this’. It was ‘Hey, I have an idea for a song.’”
Co-producer Tom Murphy added: “If you look at the history of pop music, love songs have predominantly come from one heterosexual perspective. If we view music as something that brings people together, shouldn’t these popular songs be open to everyone?”
Bob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, author, and painter, who has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades.
