I like ‘I Get A Kick Out Of You’. I can see myself returning to it - the Spotify video is also one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen. The way she looks at him got me a little emotional.
As a huge Tony fan entirely separate to (and predating) my love for Gaga, I’m fairly comfortable in saying that Cheek to Cheek is one of his worst records. But their relationship is so special and probably now essential to his legacy.
I’ve said it many times, but Cheek to Cheek in studio form always felt neutered and overly serious. Obviously it’s a commercial record, but something about the approach to the songs just never really clicked with me. It’s very pleasant. They obviously sound great together, but I think it works much better live when you can actually see their relationship, the respect they have for one another, and Gaga’s excitement. It generally feels far more relaxed and raw.
