Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ vs. Madonna’s ‘Express Yourself’: Too Similar?
However, as the Celebuzz crew is sitting here with ‘Born’ blasting, it dawned on us that Gaga’s new song sounds like Madonna’s ‘Express Yourself.’ A lot like it. The tempo, the chorus, the beat … there are a whole lot of similarities here. Could it be yet another tip of the hat from Gaga to Madge, even after many thought her previous tune ‘Alejandro’ was equal parts Madonna’s ‘La Isla Bonita’ and Ace of Base’s ‘Don’t Turn Around’?
Not familiar with the classic Madonna tune? Listen to ‘Born’ and ‘Express’ side-by-side (heck, even play them at the same time!) after the jump and hear for yourself!
