    Welcome to...

    Here it is - The Lady Gaga: Unreleased, demos and rarities rate!

    A casual discussion in another thread sparked an idea of rating Lady Gaga’s unreleased music and rarities, and here we are. Things happened rather quickly, so the rate opened less than a month after being requested (which overrode my initial first rate idea, that is No Doubt discography rate).
    This can be seen as a ‘continuation’ of Lady Gaga’s discography rate, wonderfully hosted by @Subwaykid.

    We all know that she has tons of unreleased material and rare songs that are being greatly underappreciated, so why not give them a chance to shine? Also, consider this a great opportunity to dive further into the talentry and discover amazing songs, as well as a journey through her days before the fame. Arguably, one can say that there’s as much as (or perhaps even more) variety among her unreleased music than on her five/six/seven released albums.


    As everything about Lady Gaga and her general amazingness has already been said (and will be said) numerous times, let’s go to the actual rate-related stuff.​



    Parameters for the songs that are included:
    • No official singles, with or without features ("Chillin'", "Big Girl Now", and "Video Phone" fall into this category)
    • Songs where Gaga is labelled as a featured artist aren’t included (e.g. “PARTYNAUSEOUS”, “Red Flame”, "Murder My Heart" etc.)
    • Covers are excluded (goodbye to “Cheek to Cheek” (the album), “Don’t Give Up”, “Your Song” etc.)
    • Original songs that were only performed live were initially included, but due to some of them having no redeemable sound quality, two of them were cut (“Living on the Radio” and “Princess Die”)
    • Early, demo and/or alternate versions of officially released songs are excluded (e.g. “Sometimes”, “I Wanna Be With You”, “Burqa”, early demo of “The Fame” etc.)

    Rules:
    • There are 60 songs split into 7 sections: six of them are based on the years they were recorded/released/performed in, as well as one EP.
    • Rate all songs from 1 to 10.
    • Decimal scores are allowed, no matter how many decimal places (but don’t go too crazy with them). I love tiebreakers.
    • You can award one 11 to a song you think deserves that score. On the other hand, you can give one 0. Neither are a necessity.
    • Commentary isn’t obligatory, but is greatly encouraged. They are always a great read, so at least try to scribble something for your 11 (or 0).
    • Please be considerate when giving out scores, since the sound quality varies, because most of the songs, after all, are demos.
    • So-called ‘troll’ scores won’t be accepted.


    Voting deadline: April 3rd at 21:59 GMT



    Note: This is my first rate, so mistakes are bound to happen. Hopefully there won’t be a lot of them.

    You can post now!​
     
  4. I can’t wait to see how this turns out! Though those early tracks will be low scores.

  5. I'm looking forward to this! I don't usually check leaks, songs that have only been performed live, etc, so most of these will be new to me.
     
  6. I know three songs of this I'm in
     
  7. I don't want to be that person but... making a playlist of these will be a nightmare if somebody needs it.

  8. If you have interested, the host is super helpful with all of that.
     
  9. Don't worry, I was prepared...
     
  10. I can't wait to start this! Very excited.

  11. This should be fun.
    Here I was thinking I already knew all of her material, only to find out I haven't even heard about 1/4 of these song titles dd

    I'm probably rooting the most for Nothing On and Future Love. The former is the mega hit that never was, and the latter contains my favorite ever Gaga lyrics (while also being my favorite ballad of hers).

    And I’m in!
