  1. For the second time, I've seen a list of debut albums by "pop girls" that combined The Fame and The Fame Monster went quantifying sales for Lady Gaga's debut, which got me wondering if this is a common thought, or just an optimistic view by Gaga's. The thinking seems to go something like: "It's clearly an extension of her debut (hence the name) and in some cases, both The Fame + Monster were sold together." This obviously isn't super important, but just a few thoughts: First, there seems to be a misunderstanding of what an EP is. Yes, it stands for "extended play," but the name isn't referring to an "extension" of any particular work. The term comes from the vinyl era to differentiate between singles/45s (which only contained 2 songs; the main song and a B-side) and LP (also know as "long play" or "long playing," which we would consider a full album). Usually they have 4-5 tracks. The format was much more frequently used in the UK and didn't take off in the US until the digital era. Honestly, to classify The Fame Monster as an EP at all is a stretch. It has double the amount of songs of most EPs, and its running time of over 34 mins is very long for an EP. As an example, Dirty Mind by Prince is considered his 3rd album, and it had 8 songs and a running time of 30 mins. In fact, The Fame Monster violates the UK Official Chart Company's definition of EP, which restricts the running time to just 25 mins. Yes, The Fame and The Fame Monster were frequently bundled together, so it's also sometimes classified as a re-release of The Fame. This obviously boosted sales of The Fame, and those sales should absolutely be counted for Gaga's debut effort. It's a clever marketing tactic, and both albums were likely to benefit. But from what I gather, when the video below tabulates these statistics, it's counting total TF and TFM sales and adding them together, which means the bundled editions would count as two copies of her debut. Also, this idea that it's a continuation of her work is an interesting one. That still doesn't make it the same album. Meat Loaf's debut Bat out of Hell sales are never combined with his album Bat out of Hell II: Back into Hell. Janelle Monae's multiple Metropolis concept album series are never bundled together, even if the first release was an EP. Gaga herself called the album "conceptually different," and referred to it more as the ying and yang. She even said she felt that re-releases were a disservice to music artists because "it's artists sneaking singles onto an already finished piece of work in an effort to keep the album afloat." I've also just not seen anyone else have any doubt that TFM was her follow-up album. The Grammy Awards nominated each album for "Album of the Year" in separate years (2010/2011). I'm also a little dubious about the sale numbers listed in the video, even if you count TF and TFM together. The figures I've seen look more like 22.5 million worldwide (14.3 million for TF and 8.3 million for TFM). Anyway, sorry for the long post on something so non-important Just confused that this has happened more than once.
  2. So who was the top dance electronic artist. ..well for the second consecutive year it was none other than Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta aka Lady Gaga. And she claims the top two dance electronic albums. Last years number one dance album Chromatica is number two. And thanks to a massive reissue with songs by prominent LGBT icons or artists like Big Freedia (Judas), Kylie minogue (One of the most acclaimed cuts Marry the Night [watch me walk like gaga, needs to be embraced when the clubs open up again!!!]) And of course the critics favorite of the covers The Edge of glory By Years and Years. Born this way number 12. So which gaga album was the number one dance album, The Fame. The Fame despite being released in 2008, is not only her most successful album in the states, it's the longest running number one dance album with a little close to 200 weeks at the pole position of the Billboard dance electronic albums chart.. The fame was the album we fell in love for the girl that made dance Music mainstream and forced acts like Britney spears, Christina Aguilera, to change to the new mainstream sound. Even urban acts like Rihanna, Usher and Pitbull changed their sound to match the current trends in pop Music even Katy Perry changed from Van's warped girl rock chick to a disco diva thanks to gaga, from 2009 to 2013 Dance pop was the pop Music the masses craved until A little album called Bangerz By Miley cyrus and Billboard slowly embracing streaming saw the return of hip hop and R&B, after many thought was a dying genre, it wasn't. That was the first genre that moved to spotify and embrace the future when it was being denied. Spotify was first introduced in the US in 2011, it wasn't until 2014 that Billboard acknowledged this was something that couldn't be stopped and it ended the reign of pop last true big era headed by lady gaga in the first half of the 2010s . Congrats gaga. The queen of dance pop this century. @Jordan Miller
  3. A day like today, but 13 years ago, Lady Gaga released her debut studio album. The one that started her pop dominance. I personally love this record. I remember seeing some 'LaDy GaGa' featuring Akon in YouTube and thinking to myself: "so whoever she is thinks is gonna be successful with that name" Since it kept popping, I decided to give it a chance... the rest is history. I want to run down the tracklist and give my opinion on each song. Just Dance (feat. Colby O'Donis & Akon): What a smash, I still get turnt up whenever I hear it. The bridge alone makes me quake. What happened to Colby and Akon, btw? LoveGame: probIably my favorite one in the record. I was desperate for it becoming a single. I think she could've done a better music video but I am not complaining. Paparazzi: what a bop. Gaga referred to fame as if she were thirsty for it back in the day. It's really interesting to see how her perspective has changed. The music video is a masterpiece. Poker Face: and the real slayage began here. The beat, the vocals, the music video, the Great Danes in the music video, the looks, the mu-mu-mu-mah... everything was iconic. Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say): this song deserved a lot more, it's cute, catchy, and the music video is an aesthetic serve. Beautiful, Dirty, Rich: I never could get into this one The Fame: another bop, guitars slap in this one... all we care about is ****ographic girls on filming body plastic Money Honey: back in the day, I really enjoyed this song. I don't come back to it as much now. Starstruck (feat. Space Cowboy & Flo Rida): a bit dated, I mean, it featured Flo Rida. The song is a bop, though. Any Space Cowboy enthusiasts here? He was pretty cool. Boys, Boys, Boys: why in the world this wasn't a single?! It would have been a monster hit. Such a fun song... the line "let's go see The Killers and make out in the bleachers" makes me transcend Paper Gangsta: a bit of the odd one in the album in my opinion. It's a cool track, I liked how it had its little cameo in the Telephone music video. Brown Eyes: I love this one. When I heard it I thought that it'd be great to see her in the future with this type of ballads. She delivered. I Like it Rough: another of my early favorites. Just as with Money Honey, I don't go back to it as much. Summerboy: just like Brown Eyes, she sounds more organic here, I loved the guitars and the melody. Pretty cool song. Disco Heaven: 2020/2021 vibes anyone? How about you? Do you like this album? Which songs do you still visit?
