Lady Gaga - General Discussion

  1. This is cute. The added arrangements give an ethereal feel to the song.

    Still holding out hope for Carly Rae Jepsen - Government Hooker being a surprise bonus track in the final release.

  2. Nope. The song loses all of its life or death drama and becomes another limp dancefloor exercise. I wish they didn't give them songs like Marry the Night or Edge that are imbued with Gaga's bone marrow and let them have something less high stakes from the album.

    I had to watch original Marry the Night video to get the bad taste out my mouth, all 13 minutes of it.

    "Turn the car on and RUUUUN". Yep, still chills.

  3. To me these covers don't really mean that Gaga is a better vocalist than the others, they just show that each artist excels in their own lane. Gaga is phenomenal singing her own songs and Olly is great in singing Years & Years tracks.

    These covers would have only worked if they had turned the songs upside down and translated them into their own sonic landscapes, not just throwing a Communion-era synths under an at-home vocal take.

  4. A great day to play this at 1.25x speed and bawp

    Get in the shower, I’ll meet you there
    I bought you some hippie shit from the Deli down the stairs o yeah
    Love it when my man smells so good

  5. It's like that Madhouse cover of Like a Prayer that was a hit in the early 00s, it strips away all the passion and grit from the song until it becomes a pointless thumper. Oh well, at least a queer artist got visibility I guess.

    “Marry The Night” and “The Edge Of Glory” are… überdiva pop songs for the girls with hurricanes in their throats. No matter how you try to change them, they always revert back to that. These covers just don’t hit any kind of mark.
  7. Wow, didn’t know Olly is gay.

    Cute cover though! Besides the vocals, I will say the production on these covers seem a bit… cheap? Hence why I get the Glee comparisons.
  8. It's... his entire brand.

  9. Never mind, I’m really tired and confused him with Olly Murrs.

  10. Scream. Their music is interchangeable these days I guess.

    Gaga picking people who could in no way stand up to the actual juggernauts that are her performances in these songs in order to make us appreciate the originals even more?

    Not you Orville and Freedia, you good
  12. Cancel the anniversary.

  13. Ben Platt at least has the range to attempt singing Edge of Glory, Miss Olly though? kii
  14. I can definitely bop to the Kylie and Olly covers, while acknowledging they pale in comparison to the real thing.

    I don't know... what I imagined Orville's voice sounded like but it was 10000% not that.
  15. The off key “stuck, stuck, stuuuuuck” on this never fails to make me giggle

  16. True!

    Hmm. There are plenty of singers who have incredible voices and bring ferocity and passion to their performances. She is picking artists who don't have that kind of voice. She's not asking Christina Aguilera to cover Edge of Glory.
  17. It would’ve been an odd choice but I would’ve loved to hear Kelly Clarkson do The Edge of Glory or Marry the Night.

    I hate being that person, but I will be and say that the covers haven't done much for me and there hasn't been much incentive to pick up the 10th Anniversary Edition. I would've probably been more gagged to pick up an edition with alternate artwork, a real merch package, and new remixes. Gaga did bring so much life to these songs.

    It was exciting to see the album get so much recognition and push at the end of May, though.

  19. She didn’t want MJ Rodriguez to eat her up I guess

  20. Oh Kelly would have owned both of them. Great choice.
