Amanda Lear - La Bete Et La Belle
When Amanda Lear put out a new single last year, I wrote:
Back in the 70's, it was a rare night at a gay bar if you didn't hear at least one Amanda Lear song, especially if you were watching a drag show. Orlando's late legendary Miss P was particularly fond of Lear's smash, Enigma, which lives on my iPod to this day. Here's a new one from Lear, who is either 65 or 71, depending on which source you believe. Similarly, Lear, the longtime muse of Salvador Dali, is either transgender or she's not.As a glance at that post's comments will reveal, Lear's birth gender may never be conclusively known. I just continue to dig her music.
