Ezra Furman – “Androgynous” (The Replacements Cover)

Ezra Furman has been on a quest to cover some of the most beloved songs of all time, both old and contemporary, and the last one we heard from him was of LCD Soundsystem’s “I Can Change.” Today, Furman’s presented us with his rendition of the Replacements’ “Androgynous,” which to this day remains one of the band’s most quoted works. It’s a song that loosely narrates the physical appearance of a non-conformist punk couple, and though Paul Westerberg’s lyrics might not necessarily seem all that revolutionary in 2015, they were absolutely written as a declaration of liberation in 1984, when Let It Be was released. At its core, this is a song about feeling okay with who you are, regardless of whether your androgynous beauty turns heads or makes people wonder: “Is that a boy or a girl?” Listen to Furman’s version below.
