A year ago, Lady Gaga released the (then) promotional single 'Million Reasons' as a digital download across the globe. The song went on to garner a big following and hung around for a while on US iTunes in particular. Following a few high-key performances and repeated climbs to #1 on iTunes, the song was eventually confirmed as the album's second single later in the year. But it's been a year since we first heard Gaga's now defining ballad, so how has it aged over the past 12 months for you?

Do you have a million reasons to love or hate the song?

I thought the song was nice, if a little faceless and repetitive at first kink.gif But I got swept up in the MAKE MILLION SALES A SINGLE!!1 frenzy (especially over A-Yo :')) and over time it's cemented itself as a real gem in Gaga's back catalogue.

It is Gaga at her most exposed, ever and for that I commend it being a single, and a successful one. Perfectly representing the innocence of Joanne the woman and album, it's a lovely piece to accompany such a personal project. I love it whenever I hear it now and I think it'll always be a special release for her because it was when she well and truly discarded all gimmicks and just SANG.

This was such an emotional moment from Joanne I adore it way better than PI for me (although that was great too) heart.gif

I really loved this at the time and I still do now, definitely one of her best and I think it will endure from here on in also.

Pretty much exactly what dandy* said. Such a gorgeous song and was the immediate highlight of the era for me. wub.gif

Agreed. I can't name many of her other pure ballads that I really properly enjoy but her vocals on this aren't TOO try-hard. Very natural sounding and I hope her future ballads are more in this vein too. 'Joanne' song does it very well too actually!

I think this will actually end up amongst some of her most well known and well-loved singles ever.

A stunning song. The saving grace of the 'Joanne' era and hopefully an underrated Gaga classic going forward.

I also agree! Particularly in the US it'll be really well remembered. If only for being her signature ballad! 'Speechless' found rotting xo
