My dad told me that when he first heard "Julia" by Pavlov's Dog back in the 70s he thought it was a woman. He bought the album the same day and the guy who sold it to him corrected this mistake by telling him the singer was David Surkamp www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3KSpeiRPTc

I thought Annie Lennox was a man the first time I heard "Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This", and Tracy Chapman was a man when I heard "Fast Car". I also thought Geddy Lee was a woman the first time I heard "Closer To The Heart" and that Klaus Meine was a woman the first time I heard "Rock You Like A Hurricane", which was back in elementary school.
When I first heard the song "Automatic" by the Pointer Sisters (note: I didn't know who the artist was at the time) I thought that it was a man singing lead. It was actually Ruth Pointer who is a legit contralto.
And also "Goodbye Horses" by Q Lazzarus. Had no idea who was singing the first time I heard it, but assumed it was a man. The high notes in the song sound like a man using falsetto. Another actual contralto, one of the most over-applied voice types out there.
But oh that magic feeling, nowhere to go, nowhere to go...
