Lady Gaga: The Edge of Glory

The video for "The Edge of Glory" came out late last week. It's probably the least interesting video she's made. It's certainly simple by comparison to most of her others, which maybe serves to actually make it seem pretty unique for her. Definitely fits in with the '80s influence--videos were generally so much simpler then and we still loved them.

it's essentially a post modern update of Debbie Gibson's Anything is Possible video. Which is apt seeing as she stole the sax solo from Should've Been The One (from the Electric Youth album)... :D Great song though!

Beyond Out of the Blue and Electric Youth, what of Debbie's music do you really like?

Paul said...

oh my gosh what don't i like?! The Anything Is Possible has some great moments with the lead off single, elegant ballad One Hand One Heart and brillo piano driven Another Brick Falls. On Body Mind Soul, Shock Your Mama and Free Me (the latter more of a tribute to Express Yourself than Born This Way). I could go on - MYOB was grossly overlooked, her broadway album a real treat...

I just downloaded "MYOB," "Your Secret" and "Wishing You Were Here," which are all great. Awhile ago, I also got "For Better or Worse" and "Didn't Have the Heart," which are both lovely.

I'm fine with bringing sax solos into the new decade, but let's leave Debbie in the '80s.
