Top Lesbian Songs

Unlike the list of gay-favorites, which was compiled by an Australian website which actually had gay people rank the songs that they picked, the following list of songs favored by many lesbians was ranked by users who voted over the past year. But we’re not done yet – we’ll let you still vote, even though we’re setting in stone the first wave of votes. After you take the poll, vote on the list of songs submitted by our users, then send us great lesbian songs that aren’t mentioned. Eventually, we’ll compile them all and form an ULTIMATE LIST.
