Lady Gaga - Alejandro

This is the 3rd single off of her The Fame Monster EP. "Alejandro" has been a fan favorite ever since the demo version leaked a few weeks prior to the release of the EP. The song is a cute throwback to the Eurodance and Reggae-Pop sounds of Ace Of Base during the early 90's. The song bears a striking resemblance to several Ace Of Base songs including "Don't Turn Around", "Happy Nation", "Never Gonna Say I'm Sorry." This song isn't a rip off of those songs. It could be thought of as a homage. This one is really simple in terms of the lyrics and the vocals are good. The song is very catchy though. The version on the EP is significantly different from the original demo which was much harder and had a different vocal take. The new version feels slightly watered down in comparison to that, however, the album version is good.

Grade: A
