Lady Gaga And RedOne Gift A Song To Cher

Jul 14th, 2011 // 14 Comments

The news that Cher is recording her first album in 10 years isn’t as exciting as this extra bit of information leaked by the music icon herself — she’s already recorded a song written by Lady Gaga and her right hand man RedOne. As if the gays weren’t already on board to buy a new Cher album, this just upped the ante. Even better: you don’t have to wait to hear what it sounds like! Listen to a Gaga-recorded demo of the song, titled “The Greatest Thing”, below.

“Lovelies! I have something tell u thats So Great I don’t know exactly how 2 say it!” Cher tweeted Wednesday night. “Been keeping it secret 4 long time… Just walked in from studio! I Finished 1st track on new cd &……..”GAGA ” ” YOU ARE THE GREATEST THING TO ME.”

Apparently, Gaga and her trusty producer RedOne gave the song for Cher’s forthcoming album. The song isn’t meant as a duet for her and Gaga to sing, though she adds, “Who knows? I Did Hold her “Meat Purse” haha! One can wish!”

She continues: “Wait! I would love duet with GaGa, but She Gave Me GREAT Song & I’m beyond Grateful!!!! It’s called ‘The Greatest Thing’.”

PopDust points us towards this demo of Gaga singing the song that surfaced online about a year ago:

It’s no wonder she didn’t keep it for herself — it’s pretty innocuous, and reminds us of an uptempo ballad someone like Usher might record. It really doesn’t work for the pop piano lady‘s current 90s/metal shtick, but it could possibly work for Cher. (Though if she’s going to finally release a new non-Burlesque-associated single, we’d much prefer the lead one to be an uptempo tune for the dancefloor. But that’s us.)

What do you think of “The Greatest Thing”? Is the title of the song spot on, or is that just a fancy name?

    It’s amazing to see how all these “artists” (who are or were against Madonna), now they seem to be fascinated by a cheap wannabe.

    Cher, Debbie Harry, Cindy Lauper, Janet Jackson and so many others who have been already defeated at the feet of her majesty herself, The Queen Of Pop Madonna. It seems they want to ally with whom is nothing but a pop joke.

    Oh please you all are stupid Cher taught them all

  10. Ok. I love Gaga. I have seen her Monster Ball in Stockholm which was amazing and I have all her stuff. She is musically gifted and educated with a classical tradition in addition to her knowledge of every Youthquake movement in the rock era. That being said, listen to this “new” Cher song and hum the Village People’s (later covered by the Pet Shop Boys) hit single “Go West.” It is the same chord progression. But wait that is not all. Go all the way back, a couple hundred years to Pachelbel’s cannon in D. Guess what…the same chord progression. Gaga has a talent for melodies, I will give her that. The chord progression however has been played at everyone’s wedding for a couple hundred years. If anything, I love that Gaga is able to “upcycle” the vintage sofas and antique wardrobes of the music world as her new couture with her melodic and lyrical talent. The emperor has new clothes. Go west. Life is better there.

    Cher is mother of all of these Pop Princesses and taught them a thing or two about music!

    ROFL for those calling her a sellout…Get over it. Cher is Cher and this song is GOING to be great. Cher will bring her own flavor to the song and I personally CANNOT WAIT.

    Pierre, Madonna has NEVER outdone Cher. At least ONE hit in EVERY decade since 1965…Re-invention is Cher and Madonna is and always will be BEHIND the curve.

  13. You never know Cher , Madonna , and Lady Gaga might be all doing a song together in the future.
