New Music - Hair

Lady Gaga - Hair
Album: Born This Way (2011)

Let me preface this "review" by saying that I'm highly partial to a song that features pop music's most underutilised gem... the saxophone! Now, there are those peeps (and I know some of you are regular readers) that don't agree and to each their own, but I loves me some sweet, sweet sax. So, with that in mind, you can understand why I can't dislike 'Hair.' Well played, Gaga. The fourth single from the most hyped album of the year (and possibly all time) goes a long way in solidifying my belief that Born This Way is going to be an excellent collection of songs. We all understand that the singles we've heard so far haven't been nearly as good on their own merits as 'Bad Romance' or 'Poker Face,' but I really do believe that as an album, Born This Way will be the mother monster's best. 'Hair' is an excellent thematic follow-up to the 80s throwback that is 'The Edge of Glory' as well as the heavily house influenced 'Judas.' P.s. did you know that Lady Gaga is as free as her hair? Urgh. Questionable lyrics aside, the power in her music remains its separation from the current, generic (lame) pop song (yeah, I mean anything by David Guetta). Bring on Born This Way!

Rating: 3/5
