Discussion in the AF Idol thread the other day revealed HORRIFYING opinions about this song. I always assumed it was well regarded by Gaga fans, but apparently some of you are not keen on it at all?

So, simply vote in the poll and reveal your vote below.

Let's see who is getting banned from the Gaga forum cheer.gif

It's not a hugely innovative track, nor does it reinvent the wheel. But it's a different style for her and was a beautiful surprise after Coachella.

It's a huge YES from me xo

Voted YES. I hadn't heard it in a long time before giving the AF Idol playlist a spin (unfortunately it didn't make my votes though, don't ban me Bal cry.gif), but it was such a pleasant surprise. A lot better than I remember. wub.gif

I said a few weeks ago that this properly hit me and itís still sounding great now.

At the time of release I wasnít that keen as I thought it was a regression from Joanne era Gaga but i think that the current situation made me appreciate the lyrics a lot more.

I just find it so generic and lifeless. sad.gif It's not a BAD song as such but it just sounds like watered-down, Spotify filler that just plays unnoticed. I don't think I'd have given it a second chance if it wasn't a Gaga track.

Sorry. sad.gif

Loved it at the time, not as much now but still like it a lot.

I feel had it got a music video itíd be more fondly remembered.

^ that is very true! The lack of visuals definitely impacts the song - when a single has a video it definitely helps see it in a different way.

heart.gif It's ok, she can't win them ALL with EVERYONE. I just think the song excells in its simplicity. Much like the ASIB worked in being stripped back, this was no thrills and just a solid pop song with a cute message. But I do get your point to some extent x

I usually like a basic bop as much as the other person, but I just don't get any joy from this. She's done the uncomplicated, fun pop sound so much better many times.

I voted YES, because I do like it but it's not one I go back to! I absolutely stretched the life out of it when it came out and I don't think its recovered:')

I just checked Last.fm and was very surprised to see that I haven't scrobbled it since February 2018! ohmy.gif Possibly a mistake, who knows~ but I've rectified this by playing it now! Even though I hadn't played it for ages, I love it and I'll have to remember to go back to it more often. I find it to be catchy, uncomplicated and uplifting.

One of my favourite Gaga songs - & shows she can effortlessly do modern, on-trend pop if she feels like it.

Never been a huge fan but “Friday I’m In Love” is a classic basil.gif

but no I don’t like it, it was nice for her to get a proper hit after Joanne but i definitely didn’t help it’s chart success

What's not to like? It's dedicated to her friend who lost the battle with cancer and she sings it beautifully!

I mean it's not groundbreakingly innovative but very good.
