I was driving in my car the other day when Lady Gaga’s new song, ‘Alejandro’ came on the radio. As my hair blew in the sunroof created breeze, I thought to myself, “gosh, this song sounds awfully familiar.” By the third chorus it hit me! It’s an Ace of Base rip-off of the song ‘Don’t Turn Around.’ Apparently, I’m not the only person to notice either. The irony is that Lady Gaga and Ace of Base are the only two out of three artists (Avril Lavigne makes three) in the last sixteen years to score three #1 hits off a debut album. So is this a copy or just a strange coincidence? Listen below and judge for yourself.
I won’t spend too much time on this, since I don’t think it’s even up for debate whether Lady Gaga ripped off Madonna. Just listen to the two songs below and judge for yourself. If you don’t think Born this Way is just a remix of Madonna’s Express Yourself, then I’d tell you to get your ears checked. This isn’t the first time Gaga has been accused of ripping someone off — remember her Ace of Base song? Enjoy the songs below.
