Jinkx Monsoon and Yma Sumac's Malambo No. 1

I like the question in this video's About section: can a drag queen's persona be made visible without makeup?

So me and a friend are watching Season 2 of RuPaul's Drag Race. Re-watching for him. We just finished Season 6 - which is actually my first season that I've ever seen - and I love drag - good drag, not as the parlance goes, booger drag.

I'm loving it.

Emeli Sande's Maybe

Mr. Bennett treated the matter differently. "So, Lizzy," said he one day, "your sister is crossed in love, I find. I congratulate her. Next to being married, a girl likes to be crossed a little in love now and then. It is something to think of, and it gives her a sort of distinction among her companions. When is your turn to come? You will hardly bear to be long outdone by Jane. Now is your time. Here are officers enough in Meryton to disappoint all the young ladies in the country. Let Wickham be your man. He is a pleasant fellow, and would jilt you creditably. - Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
