Judas (song and music video)

 

 

 

 

 

The song is the second single off her Born This Way album. The song was supposed to be released April 19th, but it was actually released four days earlier. Gaga said “It’s a weekend treat for my little monsters.” During an interview with Elvis Duran, Gaga stated that the song is about “always falling in love with the wrong men.”

Here is a list of all the biblical references that there are in the lyrics of the song:

  • “I’ll wash his feet with my hair if he needs” – It’s a reference to Mary Magdalene, who washed Jesus’ feet and wipes them with her hair
  • “Even after three times he betrays me” – It’s a reference to Peter who denies Jesus three times when he is arrested before the following cockcrow

The music video premiered on the tenth episode of American Idol. The music video was actually banned in Lebanon due religious concerns. Giving some background on the song, Gaga explained that “It’s no surprise, I’m sure, to many of you, that Judas is a man of the biblical senses, so expect to see some symbolism in this video.” She continued explaining that the song/video is about confronting one’s demons. “You have to look into what is haunting you and you need to look into forgiving yourself in order to move on. And it’s really fun to dance to and sounds like it could be a pop priest record.”  Gaga tweeted some of the lyrics before it was released, “I’m just a Holy Fool, oh baby he’s so cruel, but I’m still in love with Judas, Baby. JUDAS FASHION. so excited i can’t sleep!” Gaga revealed that she designed one of her outfits from the music video. Gaga designed the outfit but the Haus of Gaga made it.

The outfit and make-up in this video is quite amazing!!! I love it, it’s amazing. So different so original. It’s become a popular make-up design in youtube videos.

Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)

The music video for “Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)” premiered on PerezHilton.com on February 3, 2009. The theme of the music video is 1950’s, futuristic, Italian-American. An interesting fact about this video is that they shoot it back to back with love game music video. The music video was shoot in Los Angeles. When asked about the video Gaga said, “I wanted to show a different side of myself — perhaps a more domestic girly side. And I wanted to create beautiful, stunning ’50s futuristic fashion imagery that would burn holes in everyone’s brains. ”

I really like this music video and the song because it’s different then her more popular songs like, poker face. It’s so slow and calming but cheerful. When I listen to this song I feel like people should be dancing with the song. You can really hear Gaga’s voice in that song.

The first 20 seconds are mainly full of camera shots of different men, Lady Gaga and the city. The first main scene depicts Gaga with some friends laughing and joking in a restaurant while Gaga stand on the seat. Gaga then comes from around the block walking with her friends in pace and singing in the camera. She is shown in a bed asleep, and pulling the cover off to reveal pink high-heeled shoes. GaGa sings and cooks for a man in a house while dancing. She is also shown ironing clothes while the man is on the phone screaming at someone. The two harlequin Great Danes who appear at the start of her “Poker Face” music video, also appear in this one. Finally she lies on a sofa with her legs up on the man. She is seen kissing a man passionately with her “Beats by Dr. Dre headphones” on. One of the last scene shows her in a yellow dress made of flowers and wearing a yellow watch (Daffodil dress) while singing to the song with a unique hairstyle which shows her hair pulled up and folded over. Then the camera quickly goes back to her in bed.

The lyrics to the song is as follows,

Cherry cherry, boom boom
Gaga

Boy we’ve had a real good time
And I wish you the best
On your way
Eh, eh

I didn’t mean to hurt you
I never thought we’d fall
Out of place
Eh, eh

I had something that I love long long
But my friends keepa’ tellin’ me that something’s wrong

Then I met someone
And eh! There’s nothing else I can say

Eh, eh
Eh, eh
There’s nothing else I can say
Eh, eh
Eh, eh
I wish he never looked at me that way
Eh, eh
Eh, eh
There’s nothing else I can say
Eh, eh
Eh, eh

Not that I don’t care about you
Just that things got so compliquées
Eh, eh

I met somebody cute and funny
Got each other and that’s money eh
Eh, eh

I had something that I love long long
But my friends keep telling me that something’s wrong
Then I met someone
And eh!
Cherry cherry, boom boom

All I can say is eh, eh

3-Way (The Golden Rule)

Gaga was on Saturday Night Live on May 21, 2011. The song was written on May 19th and they recorded the next day; they also shoot the video on the 20th. Here is a quote from Gaga about them pitching the skit idea to Gaga,  “I wish that they filmed the backstage scenario as both Justin and Andy Samberg tried simultaneously to pitch this idea to me and they both choked on the way in. Justin was like ‘Umm so umm, we have a skit idea and umm, well I’m not really good at this I’ll have Andy tell you.’ Then Andy came and was like ‘Well umm bluh blah we have this skit idea.’ Then they both came in finally and they told me the story and I’m like, ‘Guys, I get it.’ They’re like ‘We really like each other.” On May 21st, the video was censored the word ‘dick’ in the phrase ‘helicopter dick’.

Summertime in the city
And everybody’s having sex

You know I just got a page from a girl that I met last week at the Payless

Shoe stores

I also have a cutie to call who likes the way I knock on her boots

Well let’s help them back
Let’s handle that
In two-to-six hours,
We’ll meet back here and regroup

Now let’s shoop

Roll up to her crib with some Bartles & James
Hop off the bus with the Alizé
Now hold up player, whatchu diggity-doing here?
I should diggity-ask you the same
And she sang

[Lady Gaga]:
Hey, boys I want you both
I hope that you think that’s cool

(Say word?)
I know most guys won’t freak together
She forgot about the Golden Rule — a huh huh

It’s OK to put us in a three-way
It’s not gay when it’s in a three-way
With a honey in the middle there’s some leeway
The area’s grey in a one, two, three-way

Normally, I don’t get down with dudes
But tonight is a special exception (Great)
See you’re my best friend
Through thick and thin
Now it’s time to make a cool connection

Lights off

Here in the dark (Here in the dark)
It’s so hard to tell (So hard to tell)
Where her body ends (La la)
And my homie’s begins (Ew wee)
This rule dates back (The Golden Rule)
To ancient Greece (Takin’ about Caesar)
We’re two Jack Trippers and a Chrissy
The new Three’s Company

You guys are still here.

It’s OK to put us in a three-way
It’s not gay when it’s in a three-way
With a honey in the middle there’s some leeway
The area’s grey in a one, two three-way

Fellas. Get ready.
Do impress the chick
Helicopter d*ck, go! Hellicopter d*ck. Helicopter d*ck
Do impress the chick
Helicopter d*ck

And all of that was OK
‘Cuz it was in a three-way
It’s right there when you see the instant replay (boom)
Maybe two is enough
That’s what they’ll say
But we’ll say, “Hell no.”
It’s a one, two, three-way

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
