      Hi everyone!

      Sometimes when we dress we like to have some of our favorite music playing in the background. Every once in a while the songs line up with our crossdressing experience. So, that got me thinking…

      What would be the ultimate crossdressing/transgender music playlist?

      There are a few obvious choices that jump out when one first thinks of it, but maybe there are a few tracks out there that aren’t so obvious or might not be as well known.

      And, please feel free to add any songs that make you feel especially feminine for any reason, or songs that celebrate femininity in ways that make people smile.

      Thanks very much for your comments!

      Lola – The Kinks

      Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da – The Beatles (‘Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face …  ‘)

      As I posted elsewhere, my personal favourite is ‘Animate’ by Rush.


      • #222149

        Animate? I mean, I love the song, but…something about Rush and crossdressing doesn’t add up for me! 🙂

        Rush = awesome, but not sexy.

        Slightly different in subject but I always found Annie Lennox very androgynous in her videos mainly in the early eighties. Also Marilyn was in one video, Who’s that girl. Just an observation.x.

        I’m a Green Day fanatic! King for a day is one of my favorite songs, well before I ever knew about my fiancé’s CDing! It kind of helped me lol. If Green Day can do it ..

      • #712053

        My preferences for songs whish really do reference crossdressing.

    • #222315

    • #239478

      Aretha Franklin “You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman” (I think the wonderful Carole King wrote this song).


    • #240141

      I like Alexis’ list.

      But IMHO,

      Party Boys – He’s Gonna Step On You Again

      should be added.

      Repeating myself, but the ultimate Crossdresser song?  Stevie Nick’s- Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You?

      Download it, or spin the vinyl.  Sing it to your inner self when dressing.  It’s almost like it was written for us girls.

      “”You know I’d rather be alone than to be without you”.

      ”  “There’s no pain, there’s no doubt”

      Always played that song for the special girl in my life.  ….. now l play it for the most special girl. 🙂

      ” if not for me, do it for the world “.

    • #356440

      One of my favorite songs to play when dressed in fem is Woman Up by Meghan Trainor. She is on my list of artists when in fem. Camila Cabello and Fifth Harmony, Ariana Grande, Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, Rihanna among others.

    • #358182

      Hi Everyone,

      Jill Marshall

      I’ll bite on this since I mentioned music in my intro page.  No particular order, depends on my mood!

      Tame Impala -Yes I’m Changing.  This one is in order, highly recommend!

      Beach House – Wildflower; Lemon Glow

      Madonna – Live to Tell

      New Order – Bizarre Love Triangle

      Smiths – Ask; This Charming Man.  Morrissey turned out to be a terrible disappointment if you expect more from him than lyrics and voice. Nevertheless, I cant help liking the Smiths.

      Patsy Cline, Walkin After Midnight, because that’s the only time I have!  and I have to be able to laugh at that a little.

      • #413369

        Hi Jill, just had to comment on your post.  First, Tame Impala are just crazy good – love them (him?).  Also, The Smiths – enjoyed a lot of their music back in their hey day (90’s?).  Couple of their songs come to mind that might go into a playlist (although they’re probably too esoteric: Bishop in a Tutu and Some Girls are Bigger than Other (haha).

    • #377390

      So many great songs shared on these posts.  One of my favorites that I didn’t see mentioned is “There She Goes” by The La’s.  Equally good is the cover of the song by Sixpence None The Richer.  Yes, I dance around the house to this song!

        Thanks Jenny for putting the song “Man! I Feel Like A Woman” at the top of your list, just like I done as well. 😊


    • #378389

      [postquote quote=355362]
      This song was written in honor of Joe Walsh and his song “Song For Emma” written for his daughter who was sadly killed as a small child. Very beautiful.

    • #378399

      I listen to a lot of different types of music, but for dressing, it’s a lot of disco. Maybe that’s because I grew up in the 70s. So many fun, liberating songs from that period. Highlights for me are Abba “Dancing Queen”,  Diana Ross “I’m Coming Out”, Chaka Khan “I’m Every Woman”, Sister Sledge “We Are Family”, Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King “Shame”, Sylvester “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real), Donna Summer “I Feel Love”, Tavares “More Than A Woman”, Odyssey “Native New Yorker”, Commodores “Brick House” among others.

    • #378458

      So, so many

      But my current favourites are

      Aerosmith: Dude Looks Like a Lady

      Pointer Sisters: I’m So Excited

      Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes: I’ve Had the Time of my Life


      I need to pay more attention to modern songs and performers, as I’ve heard plenty of recent stuff that really moves me while en femme, but usually on the radio while I’m driving, in a bar, or played live by busking groups.

      I am going to collect a new playlist, starting now!

      Love Laura


    • #378770

      This ones for the girls.  Martina McBride .

    • #384833

      I can’t say that I have entire playlist dedicated to it, but some of my favorite artists that lift me up are:

      – Sara Bareillis

      – Courtney Act

      I also enjoy Tessa Violet, but she hasn’t put out any noteworthy new music recently. Sara Bareillis did the musical “Waitress”, it has many great songs and overall just a fun musical to watch, if you’re into musicals.

    • #409171

      Heard today on the radio as driving home, seems appropriate as it’s Saturday night and time to de-stress. REO Speedwagon’s” Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore”

    • #410509

      I like new music, especially deep bass and music that you literally ‘feel’ ..over tired played-out ‘classics’ So, I wouldn’t think this list would appeal to many. –

      Sia ‘Chandelier’ will move you, emotionally..

      Tokio hotel have some beautiful songs, sung by beautiful people! Try ‘World behind my wall’.. Or “Durch den monsoon’

      I love Miley Cyrus’ new song Midnight Sky, because it’s totally relatable to my present life situation…

      I like a bit of gangster type music now and then and 2 Chainz ‘I’m different’ can change my mood!…and the videos pretty sexy! lol

      Ellie Goulding can transport you and take you places, try ‘Love me like you do’ When you want to feel raw female emotion. It’s beautiful..

      I also love Post Malone – ‘Better now’ When I want to feel bass and blow my speakers up!

      I also love The Cardigans, songs like ‘Erase and rewind’ and ‘My favourite game’ ..Just because I admire Nina Perssons so much …and at times wish I WAS her!!!

      Hope this gives you some new material! 🙂




    • #413357

      My song is Partition by Beyonce. It’s the song when i feel my sexiest and Shayla takes over when I’m dressed up and mouthing the words “Take all, of me, I just want to be the girl you like…”


    • #421990

      Hi Stacy!

      Here is one of my favorites songs that I think belongs on everyone’s list.

      Beautiful by Lucy Schwartz




    • #434741

      Most of mine are older than some of you girls here, but they are good:

      Rockaria! ……….ELO

      Hold On Tight    ELO

      Rhiannon(Live, The Dance)           Fleetwood Mac

      That’s Right         Jesse Cook  (instrumental mostly, but a good dance tune

      Senorita               Los Lonely Boys

      Cherry, Cherry  &  Kentucky Woman        Neil Diamond

      Just a few.

      one that’s really been connecting with me lately is “under new moons” by sweet crude. they’re a new band from new orleans my wife got me into and while that one is not exactly about gender, it really resonates with the kind of self-discovery we’re all exploring.

      • #610910

      Queen! The playlist I had playing in the background when I came out to my wife. Total surprise, had not talked to her at all, just walked out in full Lola.

      My CD Queen playlist:
      1. Let Me Entertain You
      2. Killer Queen
      3. Somebody to Love
      4. Don’t Stop Me Now

      God bless Freddie Mercury!

      • #712739

        I would add ‘I want to break free’ to that list, even if it’s just for the video.

          Lola Caprice

          Agreed!  You just helped me round out my top five.  Such a fun video, shame on me for leaving that one out!


    • #610903

      Just learned of another classic rock tune that references crossdressing that I hadn’t realized before: All Moving Parts by Black Sabbath! It’s on Technical Ecstasy.

      Check it out!!!

    • #611147

      Garbage – Cherry Lips.

    • #645785

      Hmm… very good question. I suppose I have a few in mind…

      FOR THE “JUST BEING MY SEXY SELF” MOMENTS: “Sexy Back” – Justin Timberlake
      FOR A “GIRLS-NIGHT” MOMENT: “Man, I Feel Like A Woman” – Shania Twain
      FOR PARTYING MOMENTS: “ADDICT” – Silva Hound (song & music video both for the YouTube series “Hazbin Hotel” posted by Vivziepop)
      FOR THE “F THE HATERS!” MOMENTS: “We’re Not Gonna Take It” – Twisted Sister
      FOR THE “NEVER GIVING UP” MOMENTS: “Don’t Wait” – Joey Graceffa (YouTuber)
      FOR THE MOMENTS WHEN OTHERS HELP BRING OUT MY TRUE SELF: “Be Somebody” – Thousand Foot Krutch (TFK for short)

      This is just a few off the top of my head of course.

    • #645792

      Man! I Feel Like a Woman – Shania Twain

      You Need To Calm Down – Taylor Swift

      I listen to these songs quite often, and I started a poll here at CDH involving them. Shania got the most votes, and I can understand why. I love her songs, and listen to them when I dress, or when I want to “Rev Up” and dance! I also love the songs:

      Love Gets Me Every Time


      Hugs, Revel
