If you’re already saying “I’m Still What?” then don’t bother with this post, please.
But if you know the immortal Sondheim tune from Follies as if it were your own name, then you will adore this reworking of it by one Fred Landau into “I’m Still Queer,” a riotous romp in which a man (vocals by William Parry) sings about how he doesn’t like anything stereotypically gay, but “I’m still queer!”
In the lyric, the atypical homosexual actually thinks the Lauren Bacall musical Applause was too long! And that Chita
Rivera is too sincere! And he missed Lincoln Center’s King Lear! But he’s queer…he’s still queer….
