How would you define this song's gender?



Thanks in advance

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

EDIT: OMG, I can't believe I didn't find about this until now. Forever Alone's headshape is totally like Ivanovic's

Crap It's the same word in Spanish, that's why I got confused...

I listened to it before and thought "I can't tell if it's a guy or a girl singing..." then I just assumed it was Michael Jackson and left the thread

Re: How would you define this song's gender?

Funk, electronic. In that order.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Genre or Gender? GENRE I would say Pop Music, GENDER as in something a male or female would most likely listen to then I would say Female.

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!

Oh, that question is also open... I would say is a male
