Article: Bob Dylan Sings About Gay Love on New Compilation

Check it out!Unilove

"Bob Dylan appears on a new compilation EP that features ‘reimagined’ versions of wedding songs for gay couples. He has recorded a new version of the 1929 song ‘She’s Funny That Way’ but switched the pronoun to ‘He’s Funny That Way.’ Universal Love also features St. Vincent, who takes on the Crystals’ ‘And Then He Kissed Me’ (as ‘And Then She Kissed Me’). Kesha sings a switched-pronoun version of Janis Joplin’s ‘I Need a Man to Love.’ Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard covers the Beatles with ‘And I Love Him,’ and Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke covers the Temptations on ‘My Guy.’ Listen to the full EP below.

Universal Love was funded by MGM Resorts International and its songs are ‘intended to function as wedding anthems for same-sex couples,’ The New York Times reports."
