    That Inez chick tries to sing with a sexy voice, but it's just annoying, really.

    This is what Lady Gaga is all about.

    I'm glad that the music industry is finally starting to bring people in who can actually SING.

    I literally haven't listened to the radio in nearly 10 years.

    Non-internet radio, that is. I don't even know who's played on the radio these days.

    That said, this song is pretty cool. It's nothing I'd listen to voluntarily, but I'll take this over shitty Italian music ANY DAY. Also, pop music writers usually are geniuses and thoroughly versed in theory and know exactly how to write a good song. Notice I'm speaking about pop music WRITERS, not performers, as most of the time they're just glamorous karaoke singers.

    But holy shit this Lady Gaga chick seems to know what she's doing, and she's not trying to sing like black chick. She's singing with soul in that clip with the piano.

    Goddamn you, Steve. That chorus IS FUCKING CATCHY!!!!!

    You can play some Phrygian stuff on top of it, which is probably why we dig it.

    Horrible haircut... Was a bit surprised that this made our rotation... well I don't hate, but I usually crop it out for some Queen anyway, because ITE: Radio Gaga > Lady Gaga.

    The chorus has this little minor scale progression that sticks in your head. Someone could easily make this a metal song with a melodic chorus. E Phrygian for the verse and fool around with some minor scales for the melodic part. Maybe harmonic minor too.

    Dorian works well for the chorus as well, gives it that poppy, catchy groove.

    Here's proof why this song kicks ass. This is a pop song with a rock song's soul.

    The best part about these singers is the fact that they DONT use guitars in their music.

    Eschewing guitar-driven music is fine if you honestly dislike guitar. Doing so because the majority of modern western music embraces guitar is sheeplike elitist behavior.
