A Week In Music - #3 "Sweetest Touch" by Gross Magic

Writing a LGBTQ novel, what better mood music do you need that Joan Jett?  As a kid I didn't know Joan was a lesbian, but I always felt uncomfortable with how arousing her videos could be. She exuded "hot" in my opinion, especially in the "Crimson and Clover" video.  "Crimson and Clover" lyrics are written about a woman, double hot coming from her.  But you can't listen to only Joan Jett music the whole book or all my characters would have mullets and bad attitudes.

So, when I found "Sweetest Touch" by Gross Magic, I got excited.  The lyrics talk about a girl's touch and how "thoughts of you are running through my brain."  The lead singer's voice is soft and breathy.  I thought, "Yes! another girl-singing-about-a-girl song."  I thought wrong.  The lead singer is NOT a girl but a boy, barely out of his teens.  None the less, the sound of his feminine voice is enough for me to interpret it as a lesbian song.  And of course, like all my favorite tunes, it has that teenage angst and yearning I love.

*BTW, if you know of any gay songs (and not Adam Lambert music), let me know.




Lyrics "Sweetest Touch" by Gross Magic


sweetest touch
did I talk too much?
still can't believe she knows my name
sweetest touch
you talk too much
dreams of you running 'round my brain

sweetest touch
did I talk too much?
still can't believe she knows my name
sweetest touch
did I talk to much?
still can't believe I'm not insane

I torn to pieces wondering
why I'll never know
I torn to pieces wondering
why it never shows
I know


I torn to pieces wondering
why I'll never know
I torn to pieces wondering
why it never shows
I know
