Remember when Cher said that her Lady Gaga collaboration “The Greatest Thing” would never see the light of day? Yeah, about that. The song leaked online earlier today, the latest in a rash of premature Gaga leaks, and the sparkly pop gem has to be heard to be believed: Campy and cinematic with a big hook, it has the same heavy ’80s shellac as Gaga’s “Hair” without an ounce of irony.
Snap judgment? It’s great — an aggressively gay dance record with vocals from two iconic pop divas. Frankly, what’s not to love?
