This week, we’ve got another hit pack from Rock Band vet and everybody’s favorite Mother Monster, Lady Gaga! The multi-talented Lady Gaga has been a pop-culture force for over a decade with her chart-topping music, awe-inspiring concerts and award-winning acting.
“Lady Gaga Pack 03” opens with “Applause”. Taken from her third album Artpop, “Applause” became her twelfth top-ten single on the Hot 100! By the end of its run, it was a triple platinum single in the United States. “Applause” is a perfect party song, and of course a challenge on vocals. Even solo, the chart requires you to jump around all three parts, testing your breathing control. The drum has snares that speed up going into the chorus, so you’ll have to pay attention to keep a combo going.
Continuing on, we have “A-YO”. This single from Lady Gaga’s latest album, Joanne, is infused with just a bit of country and funk, marking a unique direction in Lady Gaga’s sound. The guitar asks you to jump around the neck a lot, making it a lot of fun with how active it is. Vocally, it may surprise you, as some tricky jumps come at you. It’s a song worth practicing.
To give us a strong finish, we come to “The Edge of Glory”. Off her hit album Born This Way, it became her tenth CONSECUTIVE top-ten single on the Billboard charts. Frequently seen on “Best Songs of 2011” lists, it was also given accolades for Clarence Clemons’ (of E Street Band fame) guest saxophone solo. The guitar has the saxophone solo charted, and features a difficult HOPO section in the chorus. The drums have a partial disco bit, with extra hi-hats thrown in periodically. Even the bass has a strong showing in this track, giving everyone something fun to play while singing along.
The “Lady Gaga Pack 03” will be available for $5.49. Each track can be purchased individually for $1.99 each.
We’ll be showing off this week’s newest DLC on our Twitch stream TOMORROW, starting at 5pm ET. Tune in here!
