  16. I can watch Rocky Horror Picture Show and Hedwig and the Angry Inch but had no interest in the gay cowboy story Brokeback Mountain. But finding out some of the greatest music and love songs of all time from Cole Porter to Elton John to Johnny Mathis to Lou Reed, Liberace, and beyond it was hard to listen to them with the same feelings.
