Gaga for Gaga

Lady Gaga- She came out of nowhere and has taken over the world.  Lady Gaga made a huge impact on the music scene in August 2008 with her album "The Fame" and keeps rocking with her new album "The Fame Monster"

I remember hearing the song "Just Dance" on the radio and thinking.. "Ooh, I like this song. It's really catchy!" It soon became the song I was waiting to hear on the radio.  After I saw the music video... it was done... I was officially in love. So much fabulous stimulus: The clothes, the makeup, the dancing,  the hot people writhing on the floor!!! What is all this fabulousness? "Where are my keys, I've lost my phone" ~OMG...This is a song just for me!!!
My favorite scenes:  When she walks in like she owns the room (and she does!), playing around with the disco ball, licking her finger to "Wish I could shut my playboy mouth",  and all her little dance moves before Colbie O'Donnis comes on. So cool.

That was the first song... then I heard the whole Fame album.  SUCH a great album.  This is another rare album where you can play all the songs through.  My favorites are Just Dance, Poker Face, Eh Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say), and Boys Boys Boys!
I used to have Boy's Boy's Boy's as my ring tone during beauty school, and by the end of school , the girls were all humming and singing along! =)  It was my theme song of 2009.

Why do I love Lady Gaga? Oh, Let me count the ways.
She's so different- Unless you're living in a cave, you must have seen some of her crazy outfits: her hair bows, the bubble dress (my favorite), her red lace outfit at the MTV VMAs, the sunglasses, the orbit outfit.
She has great music- The songs are all catchy.  And I feel like her music is different from most pop music.  Not only does she have good songs, she has a good voice.  You may not realize, but when you hear her sing, she has a lot of talent. Her singing voice reminds me of Christina Aguilera.
She's a good dancer/performer:  I love her dancing in "Just Dance", "Love Game", and "Bad Romance"  I went all the way down to Virginia to see her in concert... and it was worth the 5 hour drive. Lady Gaga puts on a show!!! 
She's over the top- To Me, Enough is Never Enough... and she seems to live the same way.  She takes things to the limit... and beyond!

Her  new album "The Fame Monster" is out on Monday November 23, 2009.  I don't normally buy c.d.'s (unless I lose them from the library!) but I had to go out and get this.  I was not disappointed.  There are only 8 tracks, but it's 8 tracks of awesomeness.  Very pop, dance, euro-popish electronic beats. The songs address fears~

Click here for an album sampler or below for the full songs:

Bad Romance- My favorite track.  I am playing it nonstop (to the chagrin of my roommate) but it's such a catchy song and the video is FABULOUS.
Alejandro- Another song I keep playing on repeat.
Monster- (Fear of Sex) I like this song cause I've met a lot of monsters this year  ;)
Speechless- (Fear of Loneliness)  An operatic ballad~ "So baby raise a glass to mend all the broken hearts of all my wrecked up friends"
Dance In The Dark-  (Fear of Death) A little reminiscent of Madonna's Vogue with the references~
Telephone- (Fear of Committment)  Duet w/ Beyonce (and so much better than Beyonce's song Video Phone)  I like it the more I hear it
Teeth- (Fear of the Truth) Sounds like a Native American dance... ish.  Scandalous lyrics( "Take a bite of my bad girl meat")

The songs are Amazing. She is Amazing. Go and get some Amazing in your life.
