Of course, I’m discovering Lady Gaga more than a year after everyone else, but as I’ve noted, everything after 1985 is “new music” to me.
It isn’t that I hadn’t heard of her, but I thought she was just another media creation, a novelty act even. And maybe she is.
But the revelation was, she has talent! If you have time, check out the video. After the initial spectacle (and don’t forget, The Beatles were a spectacle in 1964), she sat down at the piano and killed. (About 1:45 in.)
I suspect I would like her music better live than recorded. But maybe I’m not stuck in the Sixties and Seventies after all.
