The Elusive Lady Gaga/Midway State ‘Don’t Give Up’ Video Surfaces

Robbie Daw / January 4, 2010

Last month, ’twas the season for Lady Gaga song leaks. But just because we tacked up a new calendar, why should that change? In 2009, the scantily-clad singer recorded a version of the Peter Gabriel/Kate Bush classic “Don’t Give Up” with Nathan Ferraro, frontman of MuchMusic Video Award winners Midway State.

Unfortunately for those two, some naughty bugger leaked the updated “Don’t Give Up” online last summer. The video, however, remained under wraps—until some other naughty bugger leaked it on New Year’s Day. Though the Gaga/Ferraro clip has been yanked down from virtually everywhere, you can have a look-see at it below. (Just do it fast, before the clip disappears again!)

Once their cover of “Don’t Give Up” leaked last June, Lady Gaga told Spinner, “It was really exciting doing that collaboration with Nathan. I love that song so much. I really let Midway State take the lead. I wanted it to be more pop—something that young people would hear and learn something about Kate Bush.”
