10 and 1 - Paws Up, Little Monsters




10 OF THE BEST: LADY GAGA
by Matt Bond


Ma ma ma maaaa. Mother Monster herself is in Australia right this second (AHHHH!) and she's delivering artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball to her legion of fans. Ok, so things have cooled on the universal love for LGG since the release of her 2013 album, ARTPOP, but she's still one of the biggest acts in music. So stop thinking you're cool for breaking free of the party-disco-fun-time hold she had on you while she was THE biggest music star on the planet for a couple of years there. Anyway, I am totally excited about Queen Gaga being in our corner of the world because I'll be heading along to the Brisbane show with Jo and Katie. It's my first time seeing her live and I can't wait until we're best friends. What? Nothing. But seriously, I think we'd get along famously. We live for the fame and so on and so forth.


Since I've been going back through Lady Gaga's discography over the past week in the lead up to what's going to be one crazy/amazing live show, I thought I'd get my '10 and 1' on with a list of Gaga's ten best tracks and the one song I could really do without hearing next Tuesday night. Sorry, my Queen. But nobody's perfect, right? Don't worry, you're on the right track baby... you were born this way or something. Now... let's stop bluffin' with our muffins and just dance!


THE TEN:


POKER FACE




PAPARAZZI




BAD ROMANCE




TELEPHONE
ft. Beyonce




SPEECHLESS
 



JUDAS




THE EDGE OF GLORY




AMERICANO




GYPSY (Live Piano Version)




SEX DREAMS




THE ONE:


JEWELS N' DRUGS
ft. T.I., Too $hort and Twista




When you've got ten songs as good as the ones above, you're allowed a dud here and there. 'Jewels N' Drugs' was the gangsta side of Gaga no one really needed to see. Thankfully we won't be hearing anything like this on the upcoming collaboration album with total dude, Tony Bennett. Now... paws up, little monsters. Bring on the artRAVE Brisbane Entertainment Centre show on Tuesday night!
