Lady Gaga, ‘Marry the Night’ – Song Review
Lady Gaga yearns for matrimony -- not with a man, but with the nightlife itself, on 'Marry the Night,' a new track from 'Born This Way.'
Gaga told Ryan Seacrest in February that 'Marry' is one of her favorites on the new record, but we're not feeling this one quite as much. With no instrumental lead-in, Gaga opens the track by singing, "I'm gonna marry the night / I won't give up on my life / I'm a warrior queen, live passionately tonight."
The twinkling synth opening leads into a club banger chorus in which she promises to "leave nothing on the street to explore."
Aside from a cute verse in which Gaga gets drunk, makes out with the bartender and calls herself a "loser," the song doesn't tell much of a story and never truly becomes the party-all-night-long anthem the singer might have envisioned.
'Marry the Night' was revealed in the Gagaville virtual community of FarmVille. The complete 'Born This Way' album hits stores on May 23.
