“Heavy Metal Lover” is Heavy Good

I have an addition to my favorite tracks list of Lady GaGa’s Born This Way: “Heavy Metal Lover.” For some reason, it reminds me of the Bee Gees’ “Jive Talkin'”….and I love it. “Heavy Metal Lover” is so good, it very well may be the best track on the album…

 

Listen:

 

…just because it’s my favorite song…

I simply love this interview Madonna gave in 1998 on the set of her amazing music video for “Ray of Light.” Aside from the fact that this is my favorite song and video of all time, I love seeing old interviews of Madonna. Enjoy!

 

My favorite tracks on “Born This Way”…now posted!

On my previous post, I wrote a short ‘n sweet review of Lady GaGa’s new album Born This Way. I embedded my favorite songs on the album in the post…..and now I’ve posted them here on my blog. Enjoy! 🙂

“Born This Way”

“Government Hooker”

“Judas”

“Americano”

“Scheiße”

“Bloody Mary”

“Bad Kids”

 

Ain’t No Stoppin’ Her Now

Those who say Lady GaGa has taken the title as “Queen of Pop” clearly haven’t been keeping up. Madonna is still the Queen on the throne.

The stunning, 52-year-old, top-selling female artist of all time is not only working on her 12th studio album (Slant reported that she and Lady GaGa were rumored to have shot a video together, possibly for GaGa’s Saturday Night Live! appearance), she’s still proving to the world that age is only a number.

Just look…
