Pride-Time Disco Nap

Ten mellow, bittersweet, gay songs

Pride can be exhausting—perhaps you need a disco nap?

Go ahead and make a cup of chamomile and take a break from the shimmer and feathers and accelerated BPMs with this relaxed mix of songs sung by gay men.

1) "All Alright” • Sigur Rós • Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust

Frosty, homosexual Vegenaise from Iceland

2) “Fabulous Muscles” • Xiu Xiu •  Fabulous Muscles

Emotive vocals, acoustic guitar, graphic depiction of fellatio

3) “Twilight At Carbon Lake” • Deerhunter • Microcastle

Self-loathing over layers of sound

4) “He Hit Me” • Grizzly Bear • “Friend”

A male-sung cover of The Crystals’ violent classic

5) “Strange Currencies” • R.E.M. • Monster

A song about falling in love

A song about jilted love

7) “Music Is My Boyfriend” • The Hidden Cameras • Mississauga Goddam
