** Also, The Pogues' version of "I'm A Man You Don't See Everyday" from Rum, Sodomy And The Lash. Considering their usual singer is male, and it's the only song performed by bassist Cáit O'Riordan, it would appear they did it solely to enforce this aversion.

** And don't forget "Gimme gimme gimme (a man after midnight)".

** And don't forget "Gimme gimme gimme (a man after midnight)". Of course, with them being gay, this one doesn't even qualify as camp, since it mentions nothing about the gender of the singer.

* Sonny Charles & The Checkmates' "Black Pearl" was originally about a love affair with a black woman (when segregation was the norm), but Kandystand's version turns it into a lesbian relationship, also resulting in TheCoverChangesTheMeaning. Their cover of [[ThinLizzy Gary Moore]]'s "Empty Rooms", however, does a straight gender flip.

* XTM's SpeedyTechnoRemake of the Olsen Brothers' "Fly on the Wings of Love" is sung by a woman, but still has the line "she's the greatest love I've ever had", making it a lesbian relationship.

* Netzwerk's version of Real Life's "Send Me an Angel" keeps the line "If a girl walks in", [[TheCoverChangesTheMeaning turning it into]] a lesbian {{Gayngst}} song. Novaspace's version, however, flipped the gender.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/InformationSociety's cover of Music/{{ABBA}}'s "Lay All Your Love on Me" flips the perspective so "Every woman ''you'' see is a potential threat", but the cover by Music/{{Erasure}}, whose singer is gay, leaves the lyric unchanged.

Added DiffLines:

* "Seattle" (also known as [[RefrainFromAssuming "The Bluest Skies You've Ever Seen Are In Seattle"]]) was written to be the opening theme for ''Here Come the Brides'', a TV series about women from the East Coast being recruited to become wives for lumberjacks in the Pacific Northwest. The song was originally from the perspective of the brides ("When you find your own true love, you will know it / By his smile, by the look in his eye"), but Perry Como's more famous cover switches the genders and changes some other lyrics to separate it from the series.
