Music Reviews: Lady Gaga
Stupid Lady Gaga News: 2010
We all know that Lady Gaga is becoming very popular these days, right? From her crazy outfits, strange music videos, and concert mishaps, she is drawing a lot of attention to herself. But then there is also a slew of pointless news. Most recently a lewd gesture at a baseball game. My god, obviously the reporters who put out this stuff have never been to a baseball game, where lewd gestures and profanity rain from the stands. If there was a "you suck!" counter, and teams were paid by the dollar for each gesture, They would probably make as much money as they do selling the beer that causes it all. Give me a break!
This is about as newsworthy as Lindsy Lohan's ankle bracelet. I just thought I would ad it to my hub for your entertainment. (Any update is a good update!)
NEW GAGA FOR YOU!
My review of Lady Ga Ga: The Fame Monster
For those of you who are Lady Ga Ga fans, I have some good news for you. Ga Ga's latest CD "The Fame Monster." will not disapoint you. I was very surprised when I picked up the CD at my local shopping center, to learn that it is a double album set.
Disc 1 has only 8 tracks on it. When you first listen to it, you will think, man this is weird! But, after just a few spins on your CD player you will be singing along and enjoying it a lot. The songs are just so different, it takes some getting used to.
Songs of note on Disc 1 are as follows.
1. Bad Romance. Obviously the best track on the CD. This song has a great beat, and, is one of the first tracks on the album that really liked. I see packed dance floors for this one!
2 Speachless. This is just a very good Ballad, where Lady Ga Ga showcases her voice. She really can sing. Few people know where she originally performed. I think she's awesome!
3. Show Me Your Teeth: Probably the strangest song on the ablum, with a beat that is so wonderfully strange, you just can't help but like it.
4. Alejandro: For some reason this song kind of reminds me of a cross between ABBA's Fernando and Madonna's La Isla Bonita. But, it's still very clubbish and totally Ga Ga.
5. Telephone: I love this song, it's actually kind of funny, because it a song about people who call you at the worst possible times. In her case, when she is trying to party!
The remainder of the songs on Disc One are good as well. but, the songs I mentioned are probably the best tracks on the album. It is what is on Disc Two that suprised me.
Disc Two is basically Ga Ga's Fame CD with a bonus song, and a few twists to a couple of the tracks. If you do not have the Fame CD, don't rush out and buy it. Get the Fame Monster, and you will have both CD's in one, without having to purchase the other.
Disc Two has the best Lady Ga Ga tracks on it. But that is just my opinion. The added song is just a bonus to what is already great about this CD. I don't want to make this too long. But here are some of the best tracks on Disc 2. According to my favorite down.
1. Love Game! This song is so funky. I originally thought it was called "Disco Stick" It packs the dance floors in my local club when they play it. It's just a great dance tune.
2. Poker Face. Probably the most popular song by Lady Ga Ga. many imitaters out there trying to cash in on this one. But, I will tell you that you can't get better than this.
3. The Fame. Another great dance tune. Like Love Game. It is very catchy and fun.
4. Just Dance. Another dance tune. Pretty good, something to sing along to.
5. Money Honey...More funkiness from Ga Ga. I picture her in a dress made of dollar bills.
6. Boys, Boys, Boys...I would think that this song would have the same reaction as Motely Crue's Girls, girls, girls....with the audience chanting 'boys, boys, boys" at a live show. It's kind of cutesy compared to the edge of the rest of the album. but. it's fun and easy to sing to. It's one of those songs that will pop into your head, and you can't get it out!
7. Paparazzi. This is just a good song. Not really a dance tune. But pretty good.
8. Brown Eyes. Another Lady Ga Ga Ballad. The only slow song on the ablum. nice song.
There are several more tracks on the double set 22 songs total for your Ga Ga overload. I totally recommend getting this album. If you like Dance music, This is for you! Look for it at your local music store! I got mine on black Friday! The only one left!
Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed my review.

Other Dynamite Divas You might enjoy!
Here is a list of other music Divas That I have in My collection that you might like. As with all my reviews I will lest them in according to my favorites down. But, As a note. There are no losers here. These albums are all top notch, and the artists Music Icons.
I have several CD's by Madonna. 2 greatest hits albums, including the new "Celebration" and the "Immaculate Collection." Which I will review separately in their own hubs." I also have her latest releases. "Hard Candy" and "Confessions on a dance floor." These newer CD's continue to show how truly talented Madonna is. And how good she is a re-inventing herself. I have never been disappointed with a Madonna album. they are all good.
Like Madonna, Cher is a music legend. I never even listened to her music until a few years ago. Several albums later, and seeing her Farewell tour Live! I have become hooked on Cher. The most recent CD I have are "The very best of Cher." "The Farewell Tour." and "Believe." For pushing 70, Cher remains one of the biggest music icons to walk the planet. One of her funniest comments is. People say, if the world ends the only things left will be cock roaches and Cher. She just won't go away! I love her!
3. Janet Jackson
When I was in my early 20's Janet Jackson's music was all around me. I have a lot of her old stuff on Cassette, but I think the best of her music is on "Design of a Decade." I did not realize how much of an impact Janet had on her fans until I saw her live at the Van Andel arena in Grand Rapids Michigan. (I also saw Cher and KISS there.) The audience screamed so loud the first 14 minutes of her appearance on stage she had to stop singing and start over, because you could not hear her. It was a really great show! "Usher" was the opening act.
4. Cyndi Lauper
Although Cyndi is not so much a Diva as she is a great vocalist. I have been a fan of hers for many years. I was so glad to see her live when she opened for Cher's "Farewell tour" in Grand Rapids. I have her "sins" album. Which is a collection of her greatest hits. Her song "true Colors." is probably one of the most touching songs of all time.
