Did a poll first but I think this works better at this stage.

I'm really in love with HU, so

01 Highway Unicorn (Road to Love) by The Highwomen
02 Marry the Night by Kylie Minogue
03 Yoü and I by Ben Platt
04 The Edge of Glory by Years & Years
05 Judas by Big Freedia
06 Born This Way (The Country Road Version) by Orville Peck

I adore them all but BTW is the one I have returned the least to so far.

Highway Unicorn by ABBA is the only one close to something good among these.

I'll give the new ones a few more listens before ranking them but I have a very clear #1 in Marry The Night <3

My ranking of the ORIGINAL tracks is:

The Edge of Glory (Top 3 Gaga songs)
Judas (Top 4/5 Gaga songs - switches with Bad Romance a LOT)
Highway Unicorn (Road to Love)
Marry the Night
Yoü and I
Born This Way (The Country Road Version)

My first listen ranking on these (will update later in the week when I've heard them more)

Yoü and I by Ben Platt
Highway Unicorn (Road to Love) by The Highwomen > Wow this really is ABBA, isn't it?! Really liking it! <
The Edge of Glory by Years & Years
Born This Way (The Country Road Version) by Orville Peck
Judas by Big Freedia
Marry the Night by Kylie Minogue

I didn't particularly "love" any of them except Ben (but at this point I think Ben is a major bias for me laugh.gif) but I liked what The Highwomen, Years & Years & Orville did with their versions.

Didn't like 'Judas' or 'Marry the Night' reworkings at all. I don't think I can listen to Kylie's version of that song ever again. Sorry! At least with Big Freedia it's just a "maybe it's not for me" kinda vibe for me.

Judas has grown on me a fair bit recently. Highway Unicorn was an easy last place, but I have returned to it more recently over BTW so i've ranked it above. The bottom 3 could change order though, but the top 3 are set in stone!
