ooh very good.. I can imagine hoovering to this and singing along..
Not as good as Dusty Springfield’s Born this Way – because she was born that way
It sounds a lot like something that CBBC would create for the background music for a racey episode of Tracey Beaker.
Heard it 8 times now, can’t really see any direct similarity to Express Yourself.
I like it, it’s got me grooving in my wheelchair. Well it’s a computer chair with wheels.
Stebags, it’s so similar it’s embarassing!
I thought it was tinnitus. No, yes, just hastily delivered noise ironically aimed at the burgeoning “it just gets better” Market.
Somewhat ironically. As it doesn’t. Till it stops.
yes, I can hear the similarities to Express Yourself. Though this song is so noisy.
Specifically, what is the same as Express Yourself?
I think the verses have hints of Prince’s “Money don’t matter 2nite” / TLC’s “Waterfalls”
I think if anything it’s (in part) an homage to Madonna: there’s some Express Yourself, some Vogue, some Like a Prayer; there’s also some Bowie, Prince, and a lot of other influences. Gaga’s genius is in appropriating, mixing, reenergizing, and conflating a lot of pop cultural influences–a borrowing and sampling that’s a very 21st century form of musical originality. Plus it’s got a good beat and I can dance to it.
I take back my previous comment. On a third listening it’s geeeenius.
Is it Christmas yet?
