Hair (5:08)

Cover of Born This Way

From Born This Way and 3 other releases

“Hair” is a track off of Lady Gaga’s album ‘Born This Way”. According to Lady Gaga, the melody of “Hair” resembles the work of metal bands Kiss and Iron Maiden, and is also influenced by Bruce Springsteen. The song is an uptempo club record inspired by Gaga’s experience as a teenager, when her parents forced her to dress in a certain way. Gaga found that the only way to express herself was through her hair, and she described it as a song about liberation and her ability to change her ways. The lyrics talk about embracing one’s hairstyle as their ultimate expression of freedom. “Hair” was recorded while Gaga was on tour with The Monster Ball throughout Europe. The song features a saxophone solo performed by saxophonist Clarence Clemons, a prominent member of The E Street Band. She personally wanted Clemons to play saxophone on the song, which he did by recording his part at a Manhattan studio at midnight, after he had just flown there from his home in Florida. The song managed to reach #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 without being an official single release.

Whenever I'm dressed cool my parents put up a fight
And if I'm hot shot, mom will cut my hair at night
And in the morning I'm short of my identity
I scream, "Mom and dad, why can't I be who I wanna be, to be?"

    I remember being gutted that she went with "Marry the Night" instead of this as the final single. (Though this actually peaked higher than MTN on the Hot 100). Forever my favorite from that album. <3
