Lady Gaga sings about love while honoring fashion icon Alexander McQueen on ‘Fashion of His Love,’ a track from the deluxe edition of ‘Born This Way.’

Gaga has sung about style many times before, including a 2009 song called ‘Fashion,’ which appeared on the ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’ soundtrack and mentioned several of her favorite designers, including McQueen.

But ‘Fashion of His Love’ doesn’t recycle the themes from that track. Instead, it focuses on being a committed relationship, while also mentioning the late designer, who greatly influenced Gaga’s sense of style. “You know that I’d never cheat on a man, cause I’m not like that,” Gaga sings. “I’m physically crafted to be as fitting as McQueen.”

The track begins with Gaga explaining the current state of her love life: “I never was the kind of girl that’s naturally sure when it comes to love / Oh no, I was insecure / But when it comes to you and me, I can’t deny this feeling inside / Oh no, I never felt like this before.

With the arrival of the chorus comes a huge hook and totally ’80s! beat that are rightfully drawing comparisons to Whitney Houston‘s ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me):’

I’m seeing all the signs from above / I’m gonna be the one that he loves / I was made for loving him /
The fashion of his love / I’m gonna be his first and last kiss / Cause baby I was born to be his / I was made for loving him / The fashion of his love.

On some level, the ’80s vibe is cool, but not everybody wants to be taken back to that era. The song is fun but lightweight, and it’s easy to see why this didn’t make the cut for the standard album.
