So, Born This Way, then

Depending on where you live, Lady Gaga's new single Born This Way has premiered or is just about to premiere (Capital FM at 11am). We've heard it. It is amazing. Initial reactions:

1) Spoken word intro - JUST GET ON WITH IT, LOVE
2) "Put your paws up" is the new "do it like a mandem"
3) This sounds a bit like Robyn after a massive dose of self-belief
4) This sounds a bit like Donna Summer on poppers
5) This sounds A LOT like Express Yourself
6) Speaking of which, a Shep Pettibone 12" remix would be amazing.
7) A capella coda = classy
8) This is probably the most straightforward pop song Gaga's ever recorded
9) The line "we have the same DNA" is brilliant, but scientifically inaccurate
10) I am now holding down the repeat button with a copy of Randy Taborelli's "Madonna: An Intimate Biography"

So yeah, it's pretty darn good.

Will it change the face of recorded music forever? No.
Will it do anything to quieten Gaga's critics? No.
Is it a triumphant love letter to her "little monsters"? Absolutely, yes.

Well done.
