I don’t know about you all, but every shower in my house is accompanied by copious bouts of singing. In that way, Lady Gaga and I are basically the same person — except that when she sings in the bathtub it’s along to her own upcoming collaboration with Tony Bennett. I usually just scream along with the voices in my head.
Gaga posted a duo of videos to Instagram Friday in which she lip-syncs along to “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered,” a bonus track on the Target deluxe version of her album of jazz standards, Cheek To Cheek, due out September 23. The tune was originally composed for the 1940 Rodgers and Hart musical “Pal Joey.”
The record also features classics like Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes,” Duke Ellington and Irving Mills’ “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing),” and, of course, Irving Berlin’s “Cheek To Cheek.” Gaga dropped a single from the record, “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” — which has been performed by the likes of Billie Holliday and Ella Fitzgerald — this past week.
We hope Gaga gets back in the tub soon, because we’re seriously itching to hear some new tunes — aside from the ones reverberating all around our own shower walls. You sound much better, Stefani — believe me.
