Scheiße (3:46)

Cover of Born This Way

From Born This Way and 2 other releases

“Scheiße” is a song by American recording artist Lady Gaga from her second studio album, Born This Way. The song is written and produced by Lady Gaga and RedOne, and was recorded in Europe on the tour bus during the Monster Ball Tour. “Scheiße” was first introduced as a remix during a Thierry Mugler fashion show held in January 19, 2011. Gaga later performed the first verse and the chorus during the 2011 season finale of Germany’s Next Topmodel.

“Scheiße” is a dance-pop song with heavy, pounding synths. The song also has a fast techno beat with electroclash and Eurodisco influences. Gaga speaks the first verse and parts of the chorus of the song in German, as the name of the song is German. The song has a feminist tone, with lyrics speaking of female empowerment. The song received positive reviews from contemporary critics, who complimented its heavy dance beat and catchy chorus, despite criticizing the German lyrics and Gaga’s accent. Reviewers also considered it a highlight of the album, and found influences of Madonna’s work. The song charted on the South Korean and American national charts, as well as charting on alternate charts in Canada, Germany and the United States.

    "This song I wrote right after I left Berlin. I went to the Lab.Oratory Club [May 11, 2010] the night before, I had some fun with my friends then the next day I wrote 'Scheiße'. I meant it like 'shit, it's good.' But I also meant it the other way; because this song is really about wanting to be a strong female without all the bullshit that comes along with. Anything that gets in your way from being brave. It's not the only word I know, I just like that word. It's sexy." - Lady Gaga
