Lady Gaga's surprising new tunes

Posted on

It’s not just Lady Gaga obsessives who’ll be drooling over her new eight-song EP, The Fame Monster (or a deluxe version that combines it with 2008’s The Fame). Here are some other audiences who might go gaga.

BEYONCÉ DEVOTEES
”Telephone” — B and G’s much-hyped duet about cellular interruptions of nightclub high jinks — ain’t exactly Keats, but the beat could make a dead British poet shimmy in his grave.

TWIHARDS AND FANGBANGERS
”Monster” and ”Teeth” find Gaga evoking images straight out of Twilight and True Blood. ”Take a bite of my bad-girl meat,” she declares on the latter ditty, a deliciously twisted monster mash that deserves to be the first big hit of 2010.

ABBA ADDICTS
The Lady channels her inner Agnetha on ”Alejandro,” an ear-wormy ode to a Latin lover that comes complete with comically accented dialogue snippets.

COUNTRY FANS
Gaga gets emotionally raw on the gorgeous ballad ”Speechless,” which contains a thin patina of twang.
