Happy Sunday, bloggers!
This week’s “Sunday Slow Jams” is Lady Gaga’s “The Cure,” taken from her recent album Joanne. Granted, it’s a year late for discovering this song just now, but better late than never, right?
Considering that I haven’t been consistently listening to Lady Gaga’s works since Born This Way (2011), it was an interesting return to her music (especially with this track) as she’s definitely evolved tremendously over the years.
True, she’s still putting out the usual, glam-rock tracks that have since become her music signature, but “The Cure” takes a break from that, and offers a more laid-back synth-pop song that’s both to relax and get you moving on a weekend night.
I’ll be honest and say that “The Cure” does sound a bit generic, like any other pop song you’d hear on the radio. Yet, despite its rather formulaic sound, it works, and it offers a real taste of Lady Gaga’s voice, without any frills or distortions. Just a pure sound, which goes to show that she can actually sing!
Feel free to give it a listen, and enjoy the last of your weekend!
