30 Days of Songs, Day 7

Day 7: One band/singer you're ashamed to admit you like.

rosepurr had the same idea I did and posted before I did. But that's okay. I really only like "Tik Tok" because it's catchy as hell, never mind its insipid and nonsensical lyrics. The other music I've heard from ke$ha offends me by trying too hard to be catchy, but succeeding only at cloying, while still being insipid.

So, I'll pick someone who's grown on me considerably over the last few months. I don't listen to much dance music or contemporary pop. But it all sounds the same to me - overproduced, heavy drum beats, an Auto-tuned singer. If I flip past it on the radio, I quickly move on. However, some of it stands out.

Lady Gaga totally rips off Madonna from twenty-five years ago. I've said I'm a child of the Eighties so why wouldn't I enjoy history repeating itself?

Artistic advice: If you're going to steal, steal from the best.

If I hear this song on my way to work, it will stay with me all day. I will occasionally find myself singing these lyrics, which is horrible because I do not have a bad romance.



I'm caught in a good romance. :)

Much agreed. Lady Gaga reminds me so much of 80s Madonna. Her music is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me.

I have to admit, her song "Just Dance" is a guilty pleasure for me. I've never seen this video - definitely my generation's Madonna, for better or worse!

I almost posted this video! I guess I'm not ashamed, because I'm going to a Lady Gaga concert next week.
