Lady GaGa 'Poker Face'
The Fame
Interscope
Winter 2008



This is the second single to be taken from 'The Fame' somewhat unsurprisingly. Smexiness. Video should premiere sometime soon apparently...

Poker Face Audio



Loffly. Given the fact 'Just Dance' is being released here in January, I'd expect this to be a single in March or April or summit (if we get that far =\) She's playing the OMO club night at the Astoria in London on the 13th. Do I dare brave it?

Beautiful, Dirty Rich is the next single? It has a video and everything. There's promos everywhere.

It's quite easily the worst song on the album. It's been said before but it is pretty much 'Just Dance' but with different lyrics and worse.

Bad choice for 2nd single.
BDR is a MUCH better choice, i do like Pokerface but it needs to be released as 3rd or 4th single not in the winter time.

Just to clear up, the US are getting Beautiful Dirty Rich.

Canada and other selected countries, presumably most of Europe including the UK, are getting this.

Personally despite this being my favourite on the album, I'd go with Boys Boys Boys for second because this is just TOO similar to Just Dance to follow it up straight away...

ridiculous choice...it's the same song again with different lyrics...what a lazy follow up sad.gif

this happened a lot in the 1990's, Eiffel 65 and ATB spring to mind who released practically identical follow up's to their debut's

and the Max Martin production team of the late 90's were responsible for a LOT of soundalike singles in the 1997-2000 era...a lot of Britney, Backstreet Boys, Robyn and 'N Sync songs from that era sounded practically the same musically

Indeed sad.gif Boys Boys Boys or Beautiful Dirty Rich would be ideal follow-ups, with Pokerface third or fourth single preferably. Then again, if Cascada can get away with it...sleep.gif

Oh dear, we get ''Just Dance'' in JANUARY?!? mellow.gif sad.gif The same happened with JoJo's ''Too Little Too Late'' too though.

I personally think ''Poker Face'' is a great choice, it should quite easily be a hit I think.

Except Eiffel 65 are talentless. Lady Gaga is absolutely fabulous. wub.gif Great choice, imo.

a copycat follow up is never a great choice for any singer...artists should show their diversity by showing off tracks that sound different to each other

I do agree that releasing 'Just Dance's sister song as the second single is a tad dodgy. However it's the one everyone seems to rave about the most so shouldn't be a huge deal.

Fantastic song!

I'd hardly say it's an identical copy. Different structure, emotion, tone, feel etc.

The Canadian lot didn't seem to notice either. 'Poker Face' went top 20 on their iTunes chart when the album was released...

Oh come on, the instrumental is very similar...the verses share the exact same melody! It's an almost blatant steal, although it technically isn't because a producer can't steal from themselves. Still, it's uninspired as a second single choice...
