Which did you prefer?

Applause for me. While I do like Perfect Illusion, I find that I very rarely come back to it tbh sad.gif

So when Applause came out I hated it but it really grew on my over time and now I think it's a great song.
When Perfect Illusion came out I loved it, thought it was the best thing she had released since Born This Way era, but over time I grown to like it less and less. I still think it's OK but it's not a patch on her other stuff... laugh.gif

So Applause for me.

Applause by far.

I don't mind PI in context of the album, but as a single... nah thanks.

Perfect Illusion for me! It's bold, in your face and unique. Plus it sounds incredible on the album.

In fact, I'd probably rank any of her singles above Applause, which is weak, forgettable and watered down. We don't stan ~

Neither are Gaga at the top of her game but I'd go for Perfect Illusion because I find it a more interesting listen

Neither were the optimal lead single, were they?

I really like both.

But I listen to Applause more.

Perfect Illusion I love but not as an album lead single it shouldíve just been left as an album track.

Applause

But I donít see any of them as strong leads tbh, both polarising in a bad way and not exactly songs people go back to. Applause grew on me over time (thanks GTAV) but Perfect Illusion was just a mess from the beginning

'Perfect Illusion' is a much better song than 'Applause'.

Definitely not.

Applause because there are SO MANY moments on the album as a whole and this just sounds so completely tame and annoying in comparison.

Perfect Illusion because it barely represents any of what the album stands for both musically and thematically.

I would've gone for Gypsy as ARTPOP lead and Diamond Heart as Joanne lead (or the title track to really show what the album was for!).

I prefer Perfect Illusion!

I consider Applause to be Gaga on autopilot. I enjoyed it enough at the time of its release, but that was probably driven by it being her new song and that in itself being exciting, it felt like she'd been away for a long time. But when the dust settled... it's just ok. Gaga is more than just ok, and there were better songs on the album to kick off the album campaign in a more exciting way.

Perfect Illusion is a far more interesting song! Clearly not what the public and some fans were after, but I really liked it & I still find it to be an exhilarating listen. I love how the song builds and builds as it goes along, it's so frantic!

Perfect Illusion by a mile. I never warmed to Applause. One of my least fave singles by her.

I agree with all of this!

Can't believe Applause is winning by such a margin sleep.gif

I actually prefer Perfection Illusion oops. She had NO business releasing Applause instead of Gypsy.

Perfect Illusion is the better track for me. It was more interesting as a lead and, whilst it wasn't to everyone's taste, it showed a different side to her music. Applause is just so basic in retrospect, maybe 4th single worthy given the album it came from but definitely not memorable enough to be a lead - in fact I can't actually remember how it goes now.
