Lady Gaga: Your top 5

Tue 14 Jun 2011 In: Music View at NDHA

We asked you to pick which Lady Gaga track rules them all and the answers flooded in. So do we have a Bad Romance with Gaga, do we want Poker Face, let it all go and Just Dance or are we just happy to be Born This Way? Check out our Gaga-off results here. Close, but no cigar The tracks that rated just outside the top five Lady Gaga songs were Paparazzi, The Edge of Glory, Judas, Alejandro and Beautiful Dirty Rich. Thanks for coming! Number 5 Telephone: The Fame Monster, January 2010 Among the most impossible Lady Gaga lyrics to get out of your head (and let's face it, there are lots of them) is the 'you're not gonna reach my telephone' from the track which sees Lady Gaga pair up with another reigning pop queen, Beyonce. Inspired by her fear of not being able to enjoy herself because of her dedication to her career, Gaga explained that the lyrics portray herself preferring the dance floor instead of answering her lover's phone call and noted that the telephone addressed in the lyrics of the song is, in reality, a person telling her to continue working harder. Number 4 Just Dance: The Fame, April 2008 It's where it all began – Lady Gaga's debut single Just Dance was written in just ten minutes but launched her well beyond her allocated 15 minutes of fame. It was a sleeper hit in the US, spending almost five months on the Billboard Hot 100 before finally reaching the summit of the chart in January 2009. It scored the third-biggest single-week sum of all time selling 419,000 downloads in just one week and went to become the second best-selling digital song of all time in the US. Number 3 Poker Face: The Fame, September 2008 Bisexuality is a key theme of this early Gaga track, which is the most downloaded song in the British chart history. The pop queen says told a California crowd the idea behind the song was to be with a man but fantasising about a woman, hence the man in the song needs to read her "Poker Face" to understand what is going through her mind. Number 2 Bad Romance: The Fame Monster, October 2009 It's no surprise this song is popular, who hasn't had a bad romance they can relate it to?! Gaga told Grazia magazine, "I wrote ['Bad Romance'] when I was in Norway, on my tour bus. I was in Russia, then Germany, and spent a lot of time in Eastern Europe. There is this amazing German house-techno music, so I wanted to make a pop experimental record. I kind of wanted to leave the '80s a little bit, so the chorus is a '90s melody, which is what the inspiration was. There was certainly some whisky involved in the writing of the record. It's about being in love with your best friend." Number One Born This Way: Born This Way, February 2011 reader Olivia sums it up: My fave Lady gaga song is 'Born This Way'. To me this is more than a song it's a voice to those who feel ashamed, scared or confused about themselves-this voice is screaming out that it is okay to be yourself it's okay to be gay, it's okay to be who you were born to be. This song to me encourages me to be who I am, to love who I love no matter the colour, size, shape or gender, because to love is to live and to live is to love, This song rejoices me and who i am-to be proud of who I love and most importantly to love myself. That is why this song is amazing because it helps me to love myself and who I am. Watch the video below! - 14th June 2011
