    this goes without mentioning that she wrote it

    [edit] gonna add my 2c.. she's not the simple dance pop artist you probably see her as. she was into classical, cabaret, goth.. and her biggest influence is freddie mercury. all she's trying to do is bring those styles into dance tunes. listen behind her hooks and melodies.. a lot of parts are not typical dance. so that's why i think she's cool...she's kind of subverting/elevating the genre she's in. yet not going completely off the deep end and being too inaccesssible about it (a lot of great artists try that, and can't be simple and catchy enough).

    Nice info Kdude...

    Yeah, I don't care for the "Circus Side Show Freak" elements. Even in this solo piece she looks more like the cover of a "Captain Crunch" box vs. a musician I could ever take seriously.

    The kid's simplicity show cases the music, and presents it in a way...the whole world is watching his presentation. In absense of mass media promo, hype, or a Captain Crunch get-up.

    Nah, this is a different one.

    This kid's name is Greyson, that's about all I know.

    Perfect Girl remembered the lyrics to the "You Are Here Song?!?"

    I'm going up to NYC to see Sam perform week of July 4th. Hoping a nice vacation change of pace.

    Fair enough. There's a ton of musicians I dislike for stylistic reasons too, but might say.. they have some technical skill to "numb the pain". As for Gaga, I think she has both style and skill, but I wouldn't expect everyone to think the first.

    Thank you for sharing the video. I don't listen to a lot of music, but I love piano and I enjoyed that.

    I enjoyed listening to the kid, too, but I couldn't help wondering of the girls in the background were newly minted zombies!
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Yeah, I'm crazy about that "You Are Here" song. I stumbled accross it in the cover songs thread. Sam's songs are pretty good indeed; relaxing.

    Great info! Seriously, Lady gaga grew on me. I normally HATE the bs they play on the radio, but I did my research on her. Can't judge anything, especially when it's an artist.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
