'Gypsy' Is Easily Lady Gaga's Best Track from 'ARTPOP'
While the album is the supersonic pop experience we all expected, there's one track that shines bright and stands out: "Gypsy." Starting out as what sounds like a piano ballad with some beautifully evocative lyrics, the song soars into an anthemic chorus custom-made for dance floors around the globe: "I don't wanna be alone forever, but I can be tonight..."
The title refers to the lifestyle the pop icon has adopted, hopping from country to country, longing to have someone accompany her on her lonely journey. It even includes a background chant that lists all of the places she's visited (places like Malaysia, Sweden, and Norway get shout-outs). It's inspiring, it's empowering...
It's basically this era's "The Edge of Glory."
And if it isn't the next single, then Gaga has a lot of explaining to do.
