This New Lady Gaga Song “Sex Dreams” Sounds Pretty Damn Promising
Madame Gagaloo is hard at work putting the finishing touches on her upcoming iTunes Festival showcase on September 1, where she’ll be debuting a bunch of new ARTPOP tracks in London — including “Swine,” “MANiCURE”…and now, this.
“Sex Dreams” is easily my favorite of the new ARTPOP tracks so far: It’s all sorts of throwback ’80’s-R&B ferociousness, blending dirty-minded temptation with a seriously fierce strut a la Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul — and a bit of Divinyls‘ “I Touch Myself.” “When I lay in bed I touch myself and I think of you,” Gaga purrs. A slutty sister for “Heavy Metal Lover”? Oh yes, I’ll take it.
The footage is all very on point: The big Barbarella hair, tight choreography, glittery space fashion, crashing drums, sultry vocals, et al. Gaga’s clearly hopping on that disco stick again — and I’m definitely on board for the ride.
And here are a smattering of “Sex Dreams” lyrics, courtesy of Gaga’s increasingly caps lock-heavy tweets. Ladies, keep your man close — Gaga’s thirsting to give him a Reverse Warholian Experience.
