Lady GaGa: 'LoveGame'

By
Lady GaGa: 'LoveGame'
Released on Monday, Sep 21 2009

"I wanna take a ride on your disco stick," Lady GaGa sings at the beginning of 'LoveGame', offering a neat but incomplete summary of why she's become the breakthrough star of 2009. Yes, it's a shameless piece of attention-seeking, and a rather obvious one too, but be it sigh, smirk or sneer, it's guaranteed to provoke a reaction.

The other side of GaGa's success, of course, is her songs. 'LoveGame' isn't as massive as 'Poker Face', nor as melodically brilliant as 'Paparazzi', but it's still a ruthlessly effective electro-R&B club banger. GaGa gives great "Huh!", RedOne keeps the beats big and beefy, and there are enough hooks to keep every component of a GaGa outfit off the dressing room floor. Four singles in, if you're still denying her pop smarts, you're being a bit of a disco stick.
