Lady Gaga’s “Applause” is Out…

Written By: Colleen - Aug• 12•13

Well.  I guess another song from Lady Gaga’s upcoming album, ARTPOP leaked and unlike “Burqa”/”Aura” (I don’t know what the official title is) that leaked last week, this one is thankfully a return to that straight up pop sound that she does so well.  I already like it better than 80% of Born This Way.  There’s no gimmicks or raps and most of all, there’s no gross show of exposition that Gaga loves to put in her songs to accompany her own hype.  I hope ARTPOP is more like “Applause” and less like “Aura”/”Burqa” because then, I’d definitely buy it.  Well, maybe not buy it, but acquire it through certain means and tell people that I have it on my iPod.  You know what I mean.  I loved Lady Gaga when she first came out and think The Fame Monster is a great pop album, but after Born This Way, girl needed to calm down and shut the F up for a little while.  Anyway, here’s the audio and lyrics to “Applause.”  Don’t misread “Applause” as “applesauce” as I did repeatedly the first time I saw the name of the song.  Also, I’m going on record saying how ridiculous the lyrics are, but whatev.  Thoughts?  Leave ’em in the comments…

Lyrics after the jump.

I stand here waiting for you to bang the gong 
To crash the critic saying, “is it right or is it wrong?” 
If only fame had an IV, baby could I bear 
Being away from you, I found the vein, put it in here 

I live for the applause, applause, applause 
I live for the applause-plause, live for the applause-plause 
Live for the way that cheer and scream for me 
The applause, applause, applause 

Give me that thing that I love 
(Turn the lights on) 
Put your hands up, make ’em touch 
(Make it real loud) 
Give me that thing that I love 
(Turn the lights on) 
Put your hands up, make ’em touch 
(Make it real loud) 

A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E 
Make it real loud 
Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch 
A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E 
Make it real loud 
Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch 

I’ve overheard your theory 
“Nostalgia’s for geeks” 
I guess sir, if you say so 
Some of us just like to read 

One second I’m a kunst 
Then suddenly the kunst is me 
Pop culture was in art 
Now, art’s in pop culture in me 

I live for the applause, applause, applause 
I live for the applause-plause, live for the applause-plause 
Live for the way that cheer and scream for me 
The applause, applause, applause 

Give me that thing that I love 
(Turn the lights on) 
Put your hands up, make ’em touch 
(Make it real loud) 
Give me that thing that I love 
(Turn the lights on) 
Put your hands up, make ’em touch 
(Make it real loud) 

A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E 
Make it real loud 
Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch 
A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E 
Make it real loud 
Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch 

Touch, touch 
Touch, touch, now 

I live for the applause, applause, applause 
I live for the applause-plause, live for the applause-plause 
Live for the way that cheer and scream for me 
The applause, applause, applause 

Give me that thing that I love 
(Turn the lights on) 
Put your hands up, make ’em touch 
(Make it real loud) 
Give me that thing that I love 
(Turn the lights on) 
Put your hands up, make ’em touch 
(Make it real loud) 

A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E 
Make it real loud 
Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch 
A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E 
Make it real loud 
Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch 

A-R-T-P-O-P

    I figured when she was doing naked yoga in the woods, she must’ve had something new coming out.
