Lady Gaga – The Edge of Glory review

I just listened to Lady Gaga’s new song, and unknowingly managed to live blog it in a conversation with my good friend Joseph Stashko. Here is the live-blogged text in full. (This may or not be a shameless attempt to get some hits by pouncing on the almost definitely popular Lady Gaga and to milk her ‘monsters’ for all they’re worth)
