With just two weeks until Lady Gaga’s second (or third, depending if you count The Fame Monster) album, Born This Way comes out and Gaga has already released the third single, “Edge of Glory”. From my perspective it sounds like an 80s song mixed with some techno and a smooth saxophone. The song has not been You Tube that long today but so far it is being met with great approval. While writing this post the number of likes for “Edge of Glory” 6334 and keeps going up. According to the Wikipedia article on “The Edge of Glory’, the song features Clarence Clemons of the E Street Band on the saxophone. Lady Gaga revealed on Musicians @ Google Presents that she wrote the song after her grandfather died in September and said that the song is “about your last moment on earth, the moment of truth, the moment before you leave earth.” The video is below:
So what are your thoughts on the new song?
