Review: Lady GaGa's 'The Fame Monster'
Listen: Is it a 'Bad Romance' or a beautiful second chapter?
“Telephone” featuring Beyonce: A sibling to “Video Telephone,” featured on Beyonce’s “I Am… Sasha Fierce,” “Telephone” is a mid-paced dance number about finally hanging up so you can hit the dance floor. The melody recalls “Poker Face” and Ciara’s “Goodies.” (Plus, of course, any number of Madonna-dance oriented numbers).
“So Happy I Could Die”: Another chance for Lady GaGa to sing. Again, she sounds remarkably like Madonna, but in this case crossed with Rihanna because of the “hey-ey-hey-ey” refrain. Hypnotic and a fun sing-along, this could be a single.
“Teeth”: “Show me your teeth.” That’s a novel pick-up line if we’ve ever heard one. Then, of course, there’s the more traditional “Don’t want your money, just want your sex.” This stomp of a song that sounds like it could be in a musical. Really inventive and intriguing more than catchy, but compelling in a way that many of the other songs on “Fame Monster” are not. “Open your mouth boy, show me what you got.” I’ll have to try that one. Can’t wait to see the video on this one.
“The Fame Monster” begins rolling out in three different configurations on Monday, Nov. 23. That day, fans can purchase only the eight new songs or the “Deluxe Version,” which features the original 13 tracks from “The Fame” and these eight new songs on an additional disc.
