Released 13th April 2009
After ‘Just Dance’ we all knew what to expect from Lady Gaga. ‘Poker Face’ definitely runs along the same lines as her first single, but rather than being an exact clone it goes that little bit further. Instead of just being another excuse to hit the dance floor, this track has a darker atmosphere which still inspires a sing-a-long, with one of my favourite lyrics being “‘Coz I’m bluffin’ with my muffin!”
Whether you like her or not, Lady Gaga knows what she’s doing. This song is everywhere at the moment and at this rate, having proven she’s not just a one-hit wonder; she’ll probably have taken over the world as well as the airwaves this time next year. So here we have it. Another American pop star that will probably end up in rehab, if her music videos are anything to go by...
