Lady Gaga's cleverly titled 'G.U.Y.' plays with words, meanings and double entendre in the lyrics.

So much subtext in one insanely catchy pop song!

Who wants to be 'The Man'? Pretty much any dude out there. Aloe Blacc, whose folky, lived-in and soulful voice powers Avicii's ear-bending 'Wake Me Up,' has a second hit on his hands with 'The Man.' On the surface, it's the declarations of a man who strokes his own ego. Unearth a few more layers of meaning and you'll realize it's far deeper than that.
