BlinkkPiece: Lady Gaga – “Born This Way (The Country Road Version)”

… you already know what it is kids


SxSW #becausebtdubs

Off the heels of the “What Would Gaga Do?” panel, the Lady herself drops a country rendition of her most successful nursery rhyme to date. “Born This Way (The Country Road Version):” because if SxSW taught us nothing else #whichitdidnt it’s that one thing hipsters, cowboys, Californians, and Texans can agree on is fashion #putitallonme – bienvenidos a la flannel panel #pawsup


But seriously: The country road version of “Born This Way” is masterful… a stripped-down settled score that takes the down-home Good Ol’ Boy twang global… blending Bible Belt sounds with multicultural lyricism, making the seemingly Patriotic polarized suddenly pluralist… free hugs courtesy of the first world as Red and Blue States unite under the Rainbow Coalition Hands-Across-the-Atlas anthem

Gaga lyrically leads and follows the Glitter Road… humming a universal tune, still distinctly Americana at the core – Gaga in-and-of herself… America the Tapestry, America the Everycountry, America the Beautiful Blues Ballad…

If I wanna make it country, baby, then it’s OK, cuz I was born, I was born, I was born this way. From London, Paris, Japan back to USA/ I was born on the road, I was born to be brave

After travelin’ down the endless country road… just dancin’ ’round the world: she still prefers a beer and whiskey with her friends on Rivington Street… to bring a sense of down home comfort and security to the multinational masses – from the ubiquitous mainstream right down to her Little Monsters… cheers

Sounds like: You’re at a bar in Austin crooning at a piano… settled in the back sit Los Hermanos Azules… Fernando on planked boards, hints of Roberto linger along the hazy guitar riffs intertwined with wailing harmonics, while steady rich bass and rasped snare pace along, as Alejandro the mellow magician remains shadowed behind a three-piece kit… the stars at night, sheen deep and bright… in the heart of soulful tresses
