       Pretty sure everyone's heard this by now, but what do you think?  To me it's  a HUGE song......takes dance music to a higher level emotionally......... http://www.okmagazine.com/2011/05/listen-to-lady-gagas-latest-born-this-way-single-edge-of-glory/

Some people compare it to My Life Would Suck Without You by Kelly Clarkson. If you listen carefully, it's almost the same chords pattern.

Anyway, I like it

I'm impressed. It's a very, very powerful song. I haven't heard many this strong songs from this century.

I love the combination of the vintage pop/soul harmonic stuff and the Max Martin kind of dance beat. And the FM synth (when the sax starts to play) is so refreshing.

So I truly like this. Both The Fame and The Fame Monster belong to my favorite albums of 21th century, and this song makes me believe Born This Way will belong to them as well. I was suspicious when I (at first) didn't really like the single Born This Way and Judas annoyed me because of the engineering that I find somewhat stuffy, but now I'm quite confident and why wouldn't I be, after all Lady Gaga and her producers are generally extremely much to my liking.

First post on this forum btw :)

E: But I'm wondering why is it uploaded with bad quality? I listened to it on 720p but it didn't sound like high quality MP3.

         Hey, Crane -- welcome!   I liked your thoughts on the song....yes, the synth accompanient to the sax solo is great, and the part at the end of the sax solo, where it's just synths and a long guitar note gives me chills it's so good.  Also, her vocals on the chorus have a great sound.....so powerful.    About the clip quality, who knows, but there's a bunch of 'em online now, maybe
better ones ;-)

Amazing chorus. It's not as clean as a Max song, sonically. Lady Gaga's not really my favorite pop singer but I still hope this song does well for her. I'm sure it will.

It's a good Dance-Pop song, but I prefer the Redonish beat. I'm in love with Judas :)

I think that "Marry The Night" will be a wonderful Gaga's Pop song...
