Lady Gaga vs. George Michael

Check out the synth line in Lady Gaga‘s 2010 track “Dance in the Dark” with the smooth sax line in George Michael‘s classic  “Careless Whisper”. It’s not spot-on but since this is one of the all time 80s saxophone jams I thought it was worth a post.

    eh, i donno dude, it’s near-to-spot-on. certainly an identical chord progression. and the X-Men theme – the fact that she (or her producer or whoever ‘writes’ her stuff) would nab that is at once hilarious & pathetic.

    i feel like its a healthy mix of careless whisper and this, the x men cartoon theme. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZAhqEiq4cA

    The X-Men theme again! Here’s the theme with Whitney Houston’s “I’m Your Baby Tonight” (1990)

  3. 2010 or 2012 track? Post says 2010, preview says 2012. I’ve been having sleepless nights because of this.

    I agree with Mitzi… Depeche Mode’s Strange Love is, as far as I’m concerned, the most accurate. Just take a listen to the keyboard/synthesizer at 0:41… very similar if you ask me.
