I wonder if by using a bit of Madonna's 'Sorry' she is actually apologising for this song?
It is, unfortunately, a mediocre track. It's very incongruent, the song is a pale Arlequin of what can be, with undue grace, be described as 'unmotivated influences' at best. Some have heard Madonna's 'Girl Gone Wilde', in it, which I myself rank as one of her weakest singles. I can see that this may be seen as an attempt to that song. The problem is that it's half hearted.
There is no doubt that there's a bit of Madonna's 'Sorry' in it, note by note. Again, watered down.
She tries to sound like Bowie. What for?
The song is basically about Gaga's only concern: her success. In this way, it's a selfish song. It is also selfish because it gives little to the listener in exchange for the craved applause.
There are two simple symph lines, and simple vocals. That's it. Nothing more.
EDM it might be, but a form of basic EDM. Very, very basic.
There are some catcy phrases. That's the only plus in this song. But even these are badly packaged.
To be honest, nothing new in this song, and this has been the problem with Gaga for quite some time.
