Lady Gaga "Born This Way"
After months of anticipation, "Born This Way" has now been officially unleashed upon the world. My thoughts? The track sounds a lot like Madonna's "Express Yourself," but updated for 2011. Or a slightly sped up variation on Pink's "God Is A DJ."
The lyrics are very uplifting and empowering, and could be seen as an homage to Carl Bean 70's hit "Born This Way." The song does grow on you with each listen, but I was expecting something a little different, since she was advertising the new album as more rock-influenced. In short, it's good and it'll definitely sell, but not an EPIC, stop-you-in-your tracks hit. Listen for yourself below:
