The song was actually written by Lady gaga in January 2008. “LoveGame” is about the implication of a kiss (“I wanna kiss you”), when you met someone on the dancefloor, and you kiss them. This kiss can lead to either falling in love, or just a quick fuck, and never again speaking to the guy or girl. In an interview Gaga said that her inspiration for the line, “Let’s have some fun this beat is sick, I wanna take a ride on your disco stick.” “ It’s another of my very thoughtful metaphors for a cock. I was at a nightclub, and I had quite a sexual crush on somebody, and I said to them, ‘I wanna ride on your disco stick’. The next day, I was in the studio, and I wrote the song in about four minutes. When I play the song live, I have an actual stick — it looks like a giant rock-candy pleasuring tool — that lights up.” I have talked about the Disco Stick before.
The music video for this song was started being made around January 2009 but was released February 13, 2009. The setting is New York. The video mainly takes place in a subway station. The video starts with three men moving through Times Square. They open a man-hole with the cover “Haus of Gaga”. Gaga is then shown naked with blue and purple paint and glitter on her body, frolicking with two men who has the words “Love” and “Fame” etched on their hair. She carries her trademark ‘disco stick’ and wears chain linked glasses made of barbed wire. The chorus starts with Gaga along with her dancers progressing through the subway and dancing down a staircase. Her trademark dogs, two harlequin Great Danes, are also shown on top of the staircase. This next scene shows Gaga in make-shift kissing and caressing. As the camera pans from right to left the inspector changes from a man to woman in each frame. Gaga said, “This is all part of a movement. My artistry is much deeper than fashion or anything like that. I love pop music, and I want to bring it back. People are truly hungry for this. They generally miss the ’90s and the superfans flooding Times Square, crying and wailing and doing anything to see the fingernail of a star. I want that back, and [the ‘LoveGame’ video] is just another move towards that. ‘LoveGame’ is a genuine New York lifestyle video. It’s got that feeling of ‘gay, black New York,’ of inclusion and glamour,” I wanted to really bring forth the girl that I was four years ago, and I wanted to put it in the setting of the underground subway. I worked with Joseph Kahn, and he did an amazing job. He didn’t just capture the fashion; he captured the artist.”
This video and song is soo interesting and fun. It has a sexy flare to it that attracts people. It is so amazing, the choreography is so unique and interesting.
