Currently, the artists most represented on my ipod are Pink, Lady Gaga, old school Cyndi Lauper and my new minor obsession with Crystal Bowersox (who has some great originals in addition to the Idol stuff).

I dislike the so called lesbian music. I never heard one song of the Indigo Girls, kd lang leaves me cold, I can't stand Melissa Etheridge and Tegan and Sara make me change the music... well, you get the picture.

Me, too. I love the drama, the voices and the cleavages. Good times.

My former lez-lez roomie hated Etheridge, Indigo Girls and all that stuff.
She LOVED Chrissie Hynde, k.d. lang, David Bowie, Lucinda Williams, Mary Gauthier. Her current favorite is Sharon Jones.

What about old school soul music such as Motown or Stax?
What about classic rock such as Cream, Jimi Hendrix, the Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, and many more?

I'm currently in love with Melissa's new album, Fearless Love, and playing it to death.
On my On The Go playlist (my current favorites) I've also got Led Zep, Springsteen, Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell, Ray Charles, Kelly Clarkson, Eminem, Kanye, Ne-Yo, Florence The Machine (who I adore), Dizzee Rascal, The Jacksons, Yo Yo Ma, Pink, Pixie Lott, the Rolling Stones and Duffy.
Will be investigating La Bowersox anon.
I'm utterly undiscerning and not the slightest bit loyal, except to Bruce Springsteen, who I have loved since I was about 14.

I'm a gay guy who loves a lot of stereotypical lesbian music. I'd add Mary Chapin Carpenter and Shawn Colvin to the above. Maybe some old school Sarah MacLachlan too.

That group on "Rick & Steve"--you know, the one with the song that goes, "I'm a lesbian, yeah, I'm a lesbian."

Chely Wright, The Beatles, dance music, country, hip hop, rockabilly, classic rock.....what do you think we listen to? The singer doesn't always have to be a lesbo to gt us to listen to them..and when was the last time K.D. Lang released something? Give us some credit...

Never got into or liked the "lesbian" music. Have always been into rock music, particularly heavy metal. In fact, liking AC/DC, Sabbath, etc.. when I was a girl was one of the first indications to me that I was a lesbian.

My tastes extend across most types of music, from the Stones to Chopin. Yes, I love the Indigo Girls, Joan Jett, Sarah MacLachlan, etc., but I have a broad and ecclectic mix on my ipod.

I'm a lesbian who loves Tori Amos, Indigo Girls, Billie Holliday, Tegan and Sarah, Ani DeFranco, Joni Mitchell, Björk, Sarah McLachlan, Poe, old Liz Phair, Bikini Kill, Heart, Janis Joplin, Ella Fitzgerald, Aimee Mann, Annie Lennox, Laura Nyro, Nina Simone, Minnie Riperton, Maria Callas, Édith Piaf, Goldfrapp, Le Tigre, Blondie, PJ Harvey, Keren Ann, Jane Siberry, Kate Bush, Annie Lennox, Radiohead, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Peter Tosh, Rolling Stones, Sigur Rós, AIR, The Beatles, The Cure, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Luciano Pavarotti, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and a bunch of other artists. My taste is eclectic.

Evidently DL doesn't like special characters. Bummer! Bjork, Edith Piaf, and Sigur Ros are the names that look strange.

Agreed on Maria Callas.
I guess the only other typical "lesbian music" I listen to is Joan Jett's older songs and The Gossip. When I was a teen I listened a lot to Ani DiFranco. The rest, Melissa, Indigo, Tegan%Sara, Sarah McClachan bore me to tears. I'm a lesbian who have gay boy taste in music.

Sexpod? I can't believe someone mentioned that band. They were great live, but the best has to Tribe 8, always loved when Lynn brought out the strap on. Anyone remember Transisters with Chloe the poz tranny porn singer?
I'm a guy but loved hanging with my punk sisters in the struggle back in the day.

That's a little like asking, "What do the gays listen to these days, besides Bette Midler and Judy Garland?" Haven't listened to Melissa Etheridge or kd lang in ages.
Sharon Jones for sure. Zee Avi. Grizzly Bear. 70's funk. New Sade. Scissor Sisters. Township dance music from the 70s (Golden Afrique). Toots & the Maytals.

Every lesbian I know is obsessed with Brandi Carlile. I also know several middle-aged straight women who are also rabid fans.

I loved a lot of stereotypical alt white girl lez music growing up (I always drew the line at Ani, though) but I never got into Tegan and Sara until they put out their super-poppy latest album. At times it sounds like a Katy Perry record made by actual dykes but/and it's fantastic.
