Lady Gaga & Beyonce: Telephone
I find that now so much of the music in the charts leaves me cold. Most of the artists I do like are ‘album’ artists rather than singles (for example, Muse, Arcade Fire, and Great Lake Swimmers). A lot of pop is same-sounding (this may be because half of it seems to feature either Tinchy Strider or Tiao Cruz, artists who I have nothing against….but they are everywhere!). Apart from Taylor Swift, and Lady Gaga, that is. With this song, Gaga pipped Swifty to the post. Lady Gaga is so theatrical and into it, I just can’t resist…. If Love Story had been released this year, Taylor might have taken it, but from where I’m standing, 2010 has been pretty Gaga-tastic.
