* ''Series/{{Outlander}}'''s opening song is Creator/RobertLouisStephenson's poem "Sing Me a Song of a Lad That Is Gone" (written to fit the tune of "The Skye Boat Song") but changes it to "Sing me a song of a ''lass'' that is gone" probably because the protagonist is a woman.

* Music/ArethaFranklin's feminist hit "Respect" was originally written and performed by a man by the name of Music/OtisRedding.
** On the other hand, the "Sock it to me!" part definitely sounds harsher being sung by Franklin....

Overlaps with TheCoverChangesTheMeaning, as Franklin's alteration of the lyrics changes from a musician basically asking for a little respect from his lady but supporting her and [[{{Cuckold}} not minding if she fools around on him]], to a lady who is faithful and supports her man demanding to be given the respect she's due.

* Averted ''twice'' on [[strike:Sonic Youth's]] Ciccone Youth's ''The Whitey Album'', with Kim Gordon's cover of RobertPalmer's "Addicted to Love" and Thurston Moore's cover of {{Music/Madonna}}'s "Into the Groove"; the album itself is a tongue-in-cheek "tribute" to 80's music and pop culture.

* Bizarrely averted by Music/TheBandPerry's cover of Glen Campbell's "Gentle on My Mind". It sounds weird to hear a female sing about her beard...
