Well Lady Gaga did aspire to be like Madonna… God she’s so unoriginal isn’t she -.-
Nothing wrong with being inspired by somebody! Just because two of their songs sound similar doesn’t make Gaga unoriginal~ I don’t even like either artist but if if one is the idol of the other, even subconsciously, something like this is bound to happen sometime >.>
Well, Madonna isn’t that original too, I mean look at Marilyn Monroe…
Marilyn Monroe wasn’t a singer, dumbass!
Ummm… what? DId you see ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blones, or ‘Some Like It Hot’ I think she sang. And in fact I think her singing is what led to them pushing Jane Mansfield as a singer/clone (i.e. ‘The Girl Can’t Help It’).
Other than the 4/4 disco beat (as heard in countless songs) I don’t hear a comparrison.
Ignore the words and listen to the melody and you’ll hear the similarities. Also, listen closer to the background music (chords) and you’ll hear they are VERY similar.
thats only because chord progressions are always similar because of smooth voice leading tones, if two chords are similar then the whole rest of the song will probably be similar
Mary Jane’s Last Dance (Tom Petty) and Dani California (Red Hot Chili Peppers)
I’m pretty sure it was a tribute since most of the song was a tribute to other iconic artists.
Lady Gaga’s “Alejandro” sounds just like Ace of Base’s “Don’t Turn Around”
I agree with this.
Yep, I got that one and the one above almost immediately.
heard song that sounds like Body Shots by Kaci Bataglia , anybody know what that could be?
Nope, these just aren’t that similar. It sort of has the same beat, but that’s a very weak comparison. I’ve listened to them a number of times now and it isn’t getting any closer.
I’m sorry, I just don’t hear that much similarity
Lady Gaga’s born this way follows the same vocal pattern as TLC’s – waterfalls
Lady gaga sounds like Madonna. FINALLY someone else sees it. I clapped.
Lady Gaga cant write her own music
Does any one else notice how the covers are similar???
given the comparison between the two artists and the similar themes of the songs, i would say she purposely made it sound like it as a reference or homage.
well they both suck
I can definitely hear it.
I noticed this first time I heard Gaga’s tune. Blatent immitation.
Noticed this as soon as the Gaga song was released. Blatant imitation.
Meh- The argument is not doing much for me. ANd I am one who WOULD LOVE it if they matched up just to find a way to take down Gaga.
I think Lady G is pretty bland and her only real fault is doing half-asses version of Grace Jones while trying to de-throne Madonna but be seen as avante-garde as Bjork. I will admit that her last few singles did bring techno back to the glory it had in the 90s, especially ‘Edge Of Glory’ so don’t hate her completely. And Madonna well, in trying to stay relevant I feel her music has gone downhill (I don’t care what the sales say). She should pause for a bit and make a more mature a mature album of mature songs like ‘Ray Of Light’. The fans will still follow her to club all the same.
Not that similar imho. Also this eternal fight between fans of both stars: Madonna has had her moment that is now over. Lady Gaga is her great replacement (not to mention that Gaga is quite a better artist in many aspects. At the beginning of her career Madonna had no real talent save her outrageous attitude)
“Born This Way” is a combination of “Express Yourself”, “Waterfalls” by TLC (the verses are exactly the same as the verses of Waterfalls, only sped up), “When Love Takes Over” by David Guetta (which also borrowed from Express Yourself a great deal), “God is a DJ” by P!nk and we could go on and on. Lady Gaga, or whoever creates her music, is a total hack.
Yep, you’re right to mention TLC’s Waterfalls.
Thank you! I keep trying to tell people that and no one agrees but this song definitely sounds like waterfalls.
i dont think they sound the same
I thought that Britney Spears’ ‘Oops I did it again’ Sounds almost just like Kylie Minogue’s ‘Spinning around’.
I knew this sounded like SOMETHING Madonna did but couldn’t remember what it was! LOL!
Gaga’s song was recorded in 2010 – not 2012.
Why can’t we say somebodoy is plagiarist?
And Lady Gaga has a “competition” with Madonna, very ironic…
