Sounds Like: Gaga’s attempt at making the world’s most fist-pumping tango, a flamenco-tinged house number complete with dramatic strings, synth horns and lyrics in Spanish.
Pros: The pulsating synths are pretty cool. And if you thought that “Hernando’s Hideaway” needed a homoerotic dancefloor update, then you will be very, very happy that this song exists.
Cons: Gaga’s attempt at a Spanish accent is predictably miserable, and the entire exercise ends up sounding grating and impossibly cheesy—helped little by the fact that we’re still reeling from how much “We No Speak Americano” was overplayed the second half of last year. Plus, no castanets? If ever there was a time…
Yearbook Lyric: “Mis canciones son de la re-revolución / Mi corazón me duele por mi generación” (Roughly: “My songs are of the revolution / My heart hurts for my generation”)
