Why am I doing this post? Cause I loves me some tunes! And we do more stuff than just reading books! A world without music wouldn't be a nice world at all. I wouldn't want to live there. I would pack my bags and head to the nearest Mars shuttle (maybe they'll have some rocking tunes!).
This week's song is Born this Way by Lady Gaga!! IT's FINALLY OUT!! I loves this woman, her music is addicting and gooood.
First off, creeppy cover. I mean there are all parts of her sticking out, but isn't what what we love about her? Her creepyness? Other than her voice, her sense of fashion (makes me laugh) and her spirit of course.
Ive listened to this song now 3 times and this is what I got to say about it. LOVE the base. It goes boom boom boom. If you happen to have some cash around go and buy some Skullcandy headphones, you'll understand. It's not like her other songs so she is not repeating herself. It's fun, I can see myself dancing to it. This song in a club? Sign me up!!
On the other hand, it's a little Madonna-isk. I love the Lady, but I have to be fair. It might not be the exact same thing as Madonna, but her flair is there somewhere. I don't think this is necessarily bad, since well everything has been done already and well things are bound to happen. Not to mention Madonna is a huge influence with this type of music. So I can live with it.
I can't wait for the other songs! Or the video!! I don't believe they can do a better video than the one for Bad Romance (loooove it) but they could surprise me. The bar has been set very high for the Lady team, let's see if they deliver.
If you like this song and/or any song that encourages you to be yourself and to heck with everybody else, I recommend these other tunes:
If you know of any other suggestions leave a comment! Plus tell me what you think about the new Lady Gaga tune. Like it? Dislike it? Why?
Now if you excuse me I'm gonna go and listen to Born This Way for the fourth time...
