I thoroughly enjoyed that! Thanks Smitty!

Yeah. I knew Lady Gaga could sing!
She never needed the gimmicks but I guess without them she'd just be another lounge singer.
Let's see a faker like Madonna try doing a song like this.
 
2013-08-03 12:18:24 PM
You know, that's the first thing I've ever seen her do that I liked. Actually, that was pretty amazing.
 
2013-08-03 12:29:45 PM
That is too many percents. He didn't sing 2.1 songs.

The headliners at the WHFStival in 1994 were Tony Bennett and The Ramones.  I didn't think he could get any cooler, but I was wrong.  He'll probably outlive Lady Gaga too.

This. It's a shame that she had to resort to basically attention whoring to get some publicity.

/I'd like to see what would happen if she decided to put out just 1 album without her Lady Gaga persona.
//Something that would let her really show off her vocal ability
 
2013-08-03 12:57:12 PM
That's no lady.
 
2013-08-03 01:00:35 PM
This is why I have no problems with Gaga; the lady can sing AND has talent.
 
2013-08-03 01:10:44 PM
Gaga is definitely talented, but AWs wayyyy too much all over that video. Stop hogging the camera and let Tony have some screen time, k?

I bought the "Duets" CD when it came out and thought these two were fantastic together. Thanks for sharing, subby.

Musical talent is fairly common, and most people blessed with it are waiting tables.

Talent or no, in order to be a star you have to have a hook. This has been true since the beginning of the existence of popular entertainment.

prince is flamboyant despite being famous and talented.  He didn't become famous for being flamboyant.

Lady GaGa is famous for being flamboyant and no one really cares about the music.

She is talented.  But she uses that talent to produce easily forgotten garbage while screaming LOOKIT ME I AM WEARING MEAT AND PENISES.

I have said this before and it holds true.  Katy Perry is the pop star that Lady GaGa wishes she was.

why can't you pay attention?  PRINCE'S MUSIC IS NOT CRAP.  That man is a musical farking GENIUS.  The flamboyant stuff is just icing, fun, Prince being crazy, a sidebar to the fact that the man is OUTRAGEOUSLY talented.  The man made number one songs and no one at all even knew what he LOOKED LIKE.

Prince had two platinum albums before MTV was around, you know.
He's also written numerous other famous songs that others performed.

Stevie Nicks "Stand Back"
Chaka Khan "I Feel For You"
Bangles "Manic Monday"
Sinead O'Connor "Nothing Compares 2 U"
The Time "Jerk Out"
And several dozen others.

The man is flamboyant, but the talent came first.

this.  The man IS GaGa level flamboyant.  HE IS.  BUT it is NOT what he is most famous for.  He is monstrously talented.  I mean ridiculously talented.

GaGa attention whores around in meat and penises because her music is easily forgotten garbage.  She has talent.  That talent stops well before "genius".

I meant more along the lines of who would buy it. Would fans of Lady Gaga support or reject her "non-Gaga" music?

that has nothing whatever to do with anything.  I am no prince fan, i simply recognize the man's talent.  just illustrating the difference.  if you took prince's outrageous look away, the man would still be monstrously talented and make memorable music for himself and many others.  If you took GaGa's crazy outfits and attention whorish ways away...  you'd have some barely passable pop music that no one remembers.

Prince did not write that song, although he played on the track.

Basic summary of this thread: "She has talent but she's an attention whore."

Translation: I actually enjoy listening to her but I can't say that without shame. Therefore, I will justify my enjoyment by criticizing her appearance and behavior thus shielding me from ridicule both from myself and others."

Jezus Christ you people.

Stevie Nicks "Stand Back"

Prince did not write that song, although he played on the track.


from wiki -

Nicks has often told the story of how she wrote the song. She wrote it shortly after she was married to Kim Anderson. The newlyweds were driving up to San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara when Prince's song "Little Red Corvette" came on the radio. Nicks started humming along to the melody, especially inspired by the lush synthesizers of the song, and "Stand Back" was born. They stopped and got a tape recorder and she recorded the demo in the honeymoon suite that night. Later, when Nicks went into the studio to record the song, she called Prince and told him the story of how she wrote the song to his melody. He came to the studio that night and played synthesizers on it, although his contribution is uncredited on the album. Then, she says, "he just got up and left as if the whole thing happened in a dream". According to U.S. Copyright Office records, Prince is officially a co-writer of the song, even though he is only occasionally credited as such.

Or - "Prince wrote this song for me and I claimed I wrote it and he just didn't care enough to say otherwise".

Which is what it smells like to me.

So was Freddie Mercury, but, like Gaga, he had talent to backup his flamboyance.

Rwa2play: So was Freddie Mercury, but, like Gaga, he had talent to backup his flamboyance.


ok now you are just talking crazy.  Freddie had more talent in his little gay penis than GaGa could ever understand.

Bohemian Rhapsody ALONE is worth more than ALL of GaGa's output, now and future, will ever be.

No, but the whole 'let me be over-dramatic, mug for the camera, run over to Tony Bennett and farking crowd him out' begs for screen time and the shtick got old after a while during the video. And this is coming from someone who somewhat likes Gaga, has both of her albums, and went to her concert. She's an AW and sometimes to gets to be a bit much.
