Added a ShareThis button for all you dying to share the awesomeness.

If you're looking for an awesome song you haven't heard before you are in the right place. This site represents a playlist systematically designed to maximize AWESOMENESS by meeting the following critera:

  • It's AWESOME.
  • It's fairly obscure. This is obviously a subjective standard, but I don't want songs that everyone's heard no matter how awesome.
  • You can listen to it right now online for free.

Grace Kelly


I enjoy this song and I'm not sure how frequently played it was, but my primary reason in linking to it is to get some reader feedback on whether this is the straw that broke the heterosexual camel's back. Am I officially gay now?

Here are the benchmarks

1) Do you channel Freddy Mercury like this guy does?
2) Do you watch for sales on false eyelashes for that Liza Minnelli look?
3) Do you find yourself yelling at the "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" show," OMG, I wouldn't be caught dead in that!"?
4) Do you count the days before "Broke Back Mountain: The Musical" tickets go on sale at Lincoln Center?
5) Do you give copies of Rufus Wainwright's "Rufus does Judy Garland at Carnegie Hall" as Christmas stocking stuffers?

If you've answered in the affirmative for ANY of the above, then this is only the beginning.

Case closed.

P.S. Well, er, there is another benchmark that Andrew Dice Clay provided a few years back. This particular benchmark is right on point.


1.) I WISH!
2.) I'm not a big "sale" guy.
3.) I'm usually too busy taking notes to talk to the screen.
4.) There's going to be a MUSICAL!??!?!? I LOVE musicals!
5.) I'm googling to see if that really exists.

I got yer Broke Back right here, pal
