Song of the Day: Born This Way
Today’s song is Born This Way by Lady Gaga.
An extremely empowering song that has such an eclectic mix.
For all of the artists from my teenage years, I have a heavy appreciation for Lady Gaga.
Her work as an artist (as well as surprisingly a solid actress) is fascinating.
This came from her second album, which explored electronic rock and techno-pop.
The heavy synth of the track is a legitimate groove (as well as the choir vocals and the instrumental mix).
The overall message of this song is rather great.
Representation and recognition has a legitimate need in media, and I’m glad that this song exists.
That said, beating someone over the head with the message goes too far at times, but I feel this holds a nice balance.
Equally an empowering track while also relishing in it’s own merit as an individual piece.
As a side note, look at the cover of her second album.
You can’t say that this wasn’t a brilliant/hilarious decision.
