I’m trying something new on the blog today… music.
It’s such a massive part of my life, considering that I spend my life plugged into Spotify, streaming it in the car and singing in the shower.
So I thought I’d try a top 10 of my favorite artists once a week. Basically, just listing my favorite songs, so if you haven’t heard them or love them equally you can see where my preferences lie!
Starting this week with an absolute queen, Gaga.
(These are also my PERSONAL favs and I am by no means saying they’re the best)
10 – The Cure
Released as a single, I feel like this song totally brought Gaga to mainstream pop with a bang. Catchy as hell, I love this song. Also one of my fav live performances when she did this at Coachella.
Best line: If I can’t find the cure, I’ll fix you with my love
9- Dance in the dark
Synth, sex, silicone and saline… this song is apparently about a woman who only has sex with the lights off? But I’m relating it to dancing like the ho that I am in nightclubs.
Best line: Marilyn, Judy, Sylvia. Tell ’em how you feel girls!
An undeniably infectious tune. Also the music video is brilliant. If you haven’t bopped around to this in the shower, then you are missing the hell out.
Best Line: I’ve overheard your theory “nostalgia’s for geeks.
Inspired by the passing of her aunt, Joanne- this is stripped down Gaga at her absolute best. This mellow ballad gives a completely different look at her as an artist. Also, if you’ve seen the documentary, this song has so much soul and meaning it might bring a tear to your eye.
Best Line: Honestly, I know where you’re goin’… And baby, you’re just movin’ on
Fun, tongue in cheek brilliance. This song is so damn catchy. Critically I don’t believe that it performed that well, but it doesn’t stop me LOVING IT.
Best Line: Uranus! Don’t you know my ass is famous?
5- Million Reasons
Acoustic guitars and country vibes sum up this beautiful song. So full of soul, meaning and a song that emotionally I want to play loud, sing loud and cry loud to.
Best Line: I bow down to pray, I try to make the worst seem better.
Musically this has SO much to give. It’s beat makes me feel like I’m jumping up and down in a sweaty crowd, screaming at the top of my lungs. This song is fun AF.
Best Line: I don’t want be alone forever… but I can be tonight
3- Bloody Mary
Dark, sinister and moody- I fucking love this side of Gaga. AND ~*breathes* she’s playing this on the Joanne tour!!! AGHH
Best Line: I’ll dance, dance, dance with my hands above my head- like Jesus said.
2- Edge of Glory
This song has a motherfucking sax solo. Lyrically it’s insane. I don’t even need to justify this song.
Best Line: It’s time to feel the rush to push the dangerous. I’m gonna run right to, to the edge with you, where we can both fall further in love
I think this song demonstrates the pure, raw talent of Gaga’s voice and lyrical genius. There’s nothing glitzy here, just basic brilliant talent.
Best Line: So baby raise a glass to mend, all the broken hearts of all my wrecked up friends.
Hope your enjoyed!
Next week? Adele!
