How could I have missed these tracks. First up Bronski Beat lead by Jimmy Sommerville Once he left Bronski Beat he formed up with The Communards.
And more on the Bronski Beat – it was a three member group – and all three including Jimmy himself were gay men.
Here’s Small Town Boy:
Next is Tell Me Why
Now we move to his time in The Communards – with Never Can Say Goodbye:
Then we have the Communards with Don’t Leave Me This Way:
It’s funny – how many of the artists from 1980’s were in fact gay men. George Michael, Boy George, Jimmy Sommerville, Limal, and a whole bunch more.

Including Andy Bell from Erasure, Martin Gore from Depeche Mode, at least one of the Pet Shop Boys (honestly don’t know if Chris Lowe is gay), etc.
I very much like BB’s “Hit That Perfect Beat,” which I think was recorded after Sommerville had left to form the Communards. Also, they sing backup on Eartha Kitt’s song “Cha Cha Heels.”
All great tracks. Good choice.
