This darker (no pun intended) Lady Gaga song can easily be seen as one of her most commanding songs, especially while being blasted throughout the speakers at dance clubs.

The ferocity of the haunting, synth-driven beat mixed with the powerful lyrics make 'Dance in the Dark' one of her most renowned tunes by fans and critics alike. In fact, at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, it was nominated for Best Dance Recording.

According to Gaga herself (via LA Times), 'Dance in the Dark' is about "me wanting to live. I'm not a gospel singer trying to cross people over. What I'm saying is, 'I get it. I feel you. I feel the same way, and it's OK.'"
