That's okay.  You don't have to get how I can like it.  

 When you like a song, you like it.  There is no explanation for liking music. It is all personal choice and natural reactions.  I am always getting teased for having such varied music on my Ipod.  I have some of the daggiest songs you will ever hear on my iPod combined with classical music, country and western, musical anthems and opera. Pure pop music is my favourite but love all kinds of music.  I used shuffle continually.   When I drive people in my car, I get embarrassed and go to fastforward songs such as Dum Dum Diddle from Abba, Tie a yellow ribbon around the old oak tree amongst many.  Then the person in the car will say they love that song and want to hear it., :rotfl:

:lol:  Right?!  That's why there's an unlimited variety of music available to us.  Certain styles and songs just strike a cord.  Nothing wrong with liking whatever hits you the right way at the right time.  Maybe I was just in the mood to like a song of that style this morning.  Either way, shouldn't have to explain or defend it.

Dum dum diddle? :rotfl:that's hilarious. But yes, I think people who genuinely are into music will have a broad taste which includes really bad or cheesy songs.

ive still not heard this song but refuse to bother to listen. She doesn't deserve any respect as a musician, she's a plagiarist, bully, rich girl who has manipulated her way without any real talent.

:lol: We have to love a song about a girl who is jealous of her boyfriend's violin and wishes she was a fiddle called "Dum Dum Diddle"    Jonski, I know you are also a big Abba fan too and would understand.

I still can't quite believe that there are people who still rave about her. It's all I'm seeing on social media/instagram with all these folks at Coachella.

Like, really? People still like this shit?

Sadly, there's a contingency of the gay community that is never gonna give her up sadly. Good god...

So The Cure is supposed to be aping Mariah? As if Ariana Grande didn't do that already on her first album so again Gaga is behind the trend curve.

Mariah was simply the only act she had left to copy.

Putrid.

This shit sounds like you'd hear it in a Wet Seal fitting room

doesn't even sound like her normal fare...how sad for the girl with no personality.

Saw clips of Coachella...absolutely no joy in this shell of a person.

Lady Gaga's Coachella performance was an absolute thrill — until it wasn't

Lady Gaga performs Saturday night at Coachella. (Brian van der Brug / Los Angeles Times)

Mikael WoodContact ReporterPop Music Critic

Lady Gaga, to quote one of her many hits, was on the edge of glory.

Headlining Coachella on Saturday night in front of the weekend’s biggest crowd so far, the pop superstar gave as thrilling and complex a performance as any I’ve ever seen at the annual desert festival. It was wild but controlled, funny but scary, deeply tender yet filled with aggression.

Or at least that’s how it felt for about 45 minutes.

That’s when Lady Gaga, so close to greatness that even we in the audience could taste it, sadly stalled out, her momentum undone by poor song choices and a coarse promotional plug that made the whole show feel like a mere inducement to buy something.

But, oh, those first 45 minutes!

Taking the stage in a floor-length leather coat out of “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” Lady Gaga opened with a song whose title in German loosely translates as “Crap,” a relatively deep cut from her 2011 album “Born This Way.” It was a crazy selection, one nobody could have predicted, but the song’s pounding stadium-rave beat set the tone for the high-energy throwdown to come.

She remade “Just Dance” as a slamming hard-rock tune. She dropped a bit of Dr. Dre’s “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang” into “LoveGame.” She dedicated “John Wayne” to all the “dangerous men” who come to music festivals, then growled through the song in a manner that made it clear they were the ones with something to fear.

Before the title track from “Born This Way,” the empowerment anthem that’s made her a hero to many LGBTQ fans, Lady Gaga said she’ll never forget when she put the song out because it “caused so much trouble.”

“And I love causing trouble,” she said, adding an unprintable word for emphasis.

Throughout these songs — and several more that were just as intense, including “Venus” and “A-Yo” — Lady Gaga moved and sang with what looked and sounded like real abandon. For “Sexxx Dreams” she was surrounded by a crew of male dancers wearing small pieces of denim, and for once at a pop concert the choreographed display actually put across a realistic sensation of desire.

Yet Lady Gaga wasn’t lost in the moment. In the frequent close-ups that flashed on Coachella’s giant video screens, you could see how hard she was concentrating on the job at hand, which went deeper than simply entertaining a massive festival crowd. She had to make us look past the fact that she was filling in for a pregnant Beyoncé, who’d been booked for Coachella but pulled out in February on the advice of her doctor.

At her best, Lady Gaga succeeded in that mission — and not because we forgot about Beyoncé. Indeed, she reminded everyone on the polo field who was originally supposed to be there when she did the two singers’ duet, “Telephone.”

Instead, she was providing her own unique energy, an intensely focused beam of the cartoon-rebel charisma lacking from last year’s so-so “Joanne” album and her disappointing performance at the Super Bowl halftime show.

If the curtain had come down at that point, I’d be happily telling you that Lady! Gaga! Is! Back!

But that’s not what happened.

Oh, a curtain came down, all right — a digital approximation of one, anyway, that served as the video backdrop for a supper-clubby rendition of one of her least convincing songs, “Alejandro.” Then she did the even snoozier “Teeth,” of all things, a deeper cut than that German-titled song that didn’t have the advantage of a melody.

As she often does, Lady Gaga took to a keyboard for several numbers, which in theory was fine: Anyone would need a breather after what she’d just pulled off, and few have the natural pipes she does.

But doing “The Edge of Glory,” perhaps the most fist-pumpingly triumphant song in her catalog, as a dreary piano ballad? The idea was bananas, especially given that she then performed her country-ish “Million Reasons” — a tune that actually justifies a restrained presentation — in its corny EDM-remix form.

This was also the part of the show when Lady Gaga premiered “The Cure,” a new single she hadn’t spoken of until then. It’s an intriguing midtempo pop-soul jam — very Madonna circa “Human Nature.” (With its proudly synthetic textures, it also signals that the singer is moving on from the more rock-attuned “Joanne.”)

But “The Cure’s” placement on the set list only further diminished the excitement she’d been building.

Lady Gaga wisely upped the pace — and the snarling attitude — for her encore, zooming through “Poker Face” and “Bad Romance” in a way that somehow made those well-worn classics feel fresh.

Unfortunately, after “Bad Romance” she still had a minute or two before Coachella’s curfew, so she took the opportunity to speak to the crowd.

And what did she tell us at this fraught historical moment? That her new song was available to download on iTunes.

How inspiring.

Is she really gloating about the bad press she got for copying "Express Yourself"? Because what other trouble did the song cause?

I like the new song, and I thought she was pretty great at Coachella. Still hate her unsufferable personality, but I think she mostly slayed Coachella. Some weird song choices, the first song Shiebe  was not good, and her costume looked really cheap, the "light" came on at a random time and didn't add anything to the performance. I don't understand the whole never changing the choreography thing, but I guess Britney Bey and of course Janet all continue to recycle their choreo too. New song is obviously a desperate attempt at getting a hit, but it's breezy and cute with a great hook imo. She adopted a new stage attitude at Coachella I havent seen her use before, a little drunk, a little irreverent and "over it", but the closest thing to sexually confident she's ever had imo.

She probably is trying to suggest that mentioning gays and queens and cholas and whatever else was some sort of brave statement.

Other than that the Titanic was a great trip.

hahaha right? She will never be Madonna. Like the Titanic will never be the USS Enterprise. But for a pop girl, as annoying as she is, I hope she keeps going. I strongly like a few of the Joan tracks, had a blast with the superbowl, and I really enjoyed her at Coachella and new song.

:smoke: the seventies were an odd time and abba had their share of odd songs like King Kong song, the piper and this! 

Do you think they'll launch a greatest hits before the tour starts? After all, it's only four or five songs people want to see and that's what kept her career going for the last six years.
