Back when Lady Gaga first announced she was recording a new album, one of the biggest pieces of news was that she was planning on including a duet with Cher. Sadly, “The Greatest Thing” was recorded and then scrapped because Gaga didn’t love it. Well, as these things tend to do, it found a home on the web where everyone can hear it. Despite what Gaga thinks, I actually really like the song; it’s a decent pop song with a nice rhythm, plus it sounds unique, and doesn’t feel like it’s trying desperately hard for relevance and attention. (See: “Applause”) If anything, I think Gaga scrapped it because she felt she didn’t get enough face time, but once again: Cher. You’re trying to outshine Cher!
