Lady Gaga, "You And I"

The attention-seeking missile Lady Gaga performed at an Elton John-sponsored benefit last Thursday, and she performed one freshly written song; “You And I,” which she called a “rock and roll tune, which means it will most likely never get used as one of my singles.” She is not kidding about the “rock and roll” thing — the already out there recording I was most reminded of by the track, on which Gaga lets loose a gritty, almost-Bowersoxian wail, was Pearl Jam’s “Yellow Ledbetter,” of all things. Too bad her stage show is probably too elaborate for her to be a last-minute tack-on to the soft-selling Lilith Fair, because this would really fit right in. [Via]
