Song of the Day #3,830: ‘Heavy Metal Lover’ – Lady Gaga

In the year of A Star is Born and an inevitable Best Actress nomination for Lady Gaga, it’s a little wild to get served up this track from her 2011 album Born This Way.

Gaga has had one of the most interesting and surprising career trajectories ever. From techno pop and avant garde performance art to Tony Bennett duets, soft rock and award-season movie roles.

The impressive thing is that all of those roles feel like the real her. She is constantly performing but never inauthentic.

Also, this song slaps.

[Intro]
Heavy metal lover
Heavy metal lover
Heavy metal lover
Heavy metal lover
Heavy metal lover
Heavy metal lover
Heavy metal lover

[Verse 1]
I want your whiskey mouth all over my blonde south
Red wine, cheap perfume, and a filthy pout
Tonight bring all your friends, because a group does it better
Why river with a pair?
Let’s have a full house of leather

[Chorus]
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, who-who-who-who
Heavy metal lover
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, who-who-who-who
Heavy metal lover

[Verse 2]
Dirty pony, I can’t wait to hose you down
You’ve got to earn your leather in this part of town
Dirty pearls and a patch for all the Rivington Rebels
Let’s raise hell in the streets, drink beer and get into trouble

[Chorus]
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, who-who-who-who
Heavy metal lover
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, who-who-who-who
Heavy metal lover

[Bridge]
I could be your girl, girl, girl, girl, girl, girl
But would you love me if I ruled the world, world, world?
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, who-who-who-who
Heavy metal lover

[Bridge]
Whip me, slap me, punk funkNew York clubbers, bump drunk
Bud Lite, liquors, bar slam
Move it, this is your jam
Wash the night with St. Jame-son
Like a baptism, heavy metal lovers play
Baby, we were born this way

[Break]
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, who-who-who-who
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, who-who-who-who

[Chorus]
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, who-who-who-who
Heavy metal lover
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, who-who-who-who
Heavy metal lover

[Bridge + Chorus]
(Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, who-who-who-who
Heavy metal lover)
I could be your girl, girl, girl, girl, girl, girl
But would you love me if I ruled the world, world, world?
(Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, who-who-who-who
Heavy metal lover)

[Outro]
Heavy metal lover
Heavy metal lover
Heavy metal lover
Heavy metal lover
Heavy metal lover
Heavy metal lover
Heavy metal lover
Heavy metal lover
Heavy metal lover
Heavy metal…

    haven’t heard this song before (or really anything that wasn’t a hit off the album). I think I’m more of a fan of her less techno stuff though.
