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]

I approve.

Has anyone else heard of "bare: A Pop Opera," who's best song was most definitely "You and I"?

Just me, then? okay ……

A notch above Speechless; not yet the impossibly mind-blowing quality I've been led to expect from her third album, but I suspect this'll get a looooot of listens in the next six months…

Am I the only one who can't stand her horribly awful and fake speaking affectations?

Nope, me too. I hadn't noticed it much before but she sounds like a Madonna Speak & Spell.

I do like this song though. Is her third album going to sound like Elton John circa Goodbye Yellow Brick Road? Makes me nervous.
