Song of the Day: 'Gonna Be You' by Dolly Parton, Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper and Gloria Estefan

I'm pretty sure there was no way gay boys of a certain age wouldn't have been disappointed by a song promising the likes of Dolly Parton, Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan and Debbie Harry. But "Gonna Be You," with its nod to "9 to 5" opening, is cute enough -- I can totally hear it playing during the closing credits of "80 for Brady" -- and gave gay boy Gus Kenworthy the opportunity to do a cameo (and red-carpet turn) with Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda (that fun hair!), Rita Moreno and Sally Field, which is all of our '80s dreams come true! 

P.S. There's been a lot of speculation about why Debbie doesn't actually seem to be involved here -- she's not in the video, and if she's singing it's not noticeable. Some think she balked after hearing the song Diane Warren had written, or refused to be seen in a Patriots jersey. Whatever the case, it's probably just as well!

We gays may not care about football, but at least Tom Brady is good for SOMETHING!

Too bad Playgirl is not longer around or Brady would have posed for a center fold- well there is still the ESPN Body issue in which Gus showed off his spectacular ass on the slopes
