Since I pulled a 17 hour day I’m still a day behind on the blogs. So Friday will be Music Thursday. I’m going to talk to about two songs today. One song I hated and one I loved. This is the song I hated.
Lady Gaga: Judas
Before we get started the actual video is said to be releasing at some point this weekend. Most likely on Easter Day!
Now don’t get me wrong. The beat to this song is BEYOND DOPE! This is the song’s ONLY saving grace. Lyrically the song sucks. The bridge sucks. The song is just repetitious (like most songs these days).
First of all the beat of the song overpowers the lyrics. However, that really doesn’t matter because Lady Gaga isn’t talking about much here. I hate the chorus because the song goes from really good then into this Japanese pop sound. It’s like WTF?! I know its Lady GaGa attempting to be different and “deep.”
Most of her songs are beginning to sound the same. Lady Gaga is, no doubt, legitimacy talented. She can sing, she can dance, and she can write. However, her problem is that she’s not taking time between her albums to give us, and more importantly, herself a break! The Fame was released in 2008, The Fame Monster in 2009, and Born this way late 2010 early 2011.
In my personal opinion I LOVE when artist go away for a year or two, work diligently on their next album, and then come out with something that really blows our mind. To me Lady Gaga’s albums are more factory-mass made material. Nothing too unique or different is coming from within. She covers this sort of musical writers block with changing herself physically (see face prosthetics) and not modifying herself within. Really learning comes from the inside out.
Now please don’t see this blog entry as a stab at Lady Gaga. God knows that I love that girl. I think she has an incredible free spirit, she is genuinely talented, is a remarkable activist for Lesbian, Gay, and trans-gender people, but her music is falling short recently because she’s not taking some time to JUST BE A LONE. Her being alone will allow her to discover her real self and bring that out in her music more.
