Calvin Harris' 'gay' tunes
The 'I'm Not Alone' hitmaker - who has recorded songs with Kylie Minogue, Sophie Ellis Bextor and Dizzee Rascal - his tunes sounds good in gay clubs.
He said: "The other day I made some of the gayest-sounding songs I've ever made with Kylie and Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters. I'd listen to it and think, 'Wow, this is really gay' but I don't know why and maybe it's just a product of me watching or listening to things informed by being gay, rather than experiencing gay moments in songs.
"I find it odd and strange that an entire way of life can be summed up in a certain form of music, but it kinda can in a way.
"The old euphoric rush has something to do with pop music. I suppose poppy club music gets played a lot in gay clubs.
"I think my music is more gay than it used to be - I use more whooshing noises which, as we all know, induce the euphoric feeling."
The Scottish 26-year-old also revealed he doesn't create his songs to please other.
He is quoted by the Sydney Star Observer as saying: "As long as you're pleasing yourself and doing what you feel passionate about, then I think that shows. I don't know how but I think it must."Posted on 20 Jan 2010 07:30 to category : Music News
