The Definitive Ranking of Every Lady Gaga Song Ever

The Definitive Ranking of Every Lady Gaga Song Ever

Be first to like this.

Before she performs as the Super Bowl LI halftime show headliner this Sunday, we decided to compile every Lady Gaga track and rank them. Yes, “Jewels n’ Drugs” is her worst at pop perfection, but what came in as the best?

We’ve included every track to appear on the deluxe versions of her five solo albums: The Fame (2008), The Fame Monster (2009), Born This Way (2011), Artpop (2013) and Joanne (2016). We also include her song “Till It Happens To You” that she produced and performed for the 2015 documentary film The Hunting Ground.

Songs denoted with an asterisk are what we predict she will perform this weekend during the Super Bowl halftime show—a performance that promises to include aerial tricks, a guest or two and music spanning her entire career.

Now, while we’re huge Lady Gaga fans and want to think we can be the authoritative voice on this subject, please do not forget:

We don’t want any Little Monsters sending us death threats or limbs in the mail.

That being said, here’s our career retrospective ranking of 70 Lady Gaga songs:

This track brought bisexuality and sexual queerness to the waves of mainstream radios everywhere.

A really incredible ballad that can be played over and over and over again ad nauseam.

Probably her most resonating thesis of them all: “Boys, boys, boys we like boys in cars. Boys, boys, boys, they buy us drinks in bars.” #LifeGoals

This song makes us want to pole dance, and make money doing it.

Heartbreaking and important, this song channels mad Elton John vibes, and we are here for them.

Our anthem!

She made Howard Stren—a grown man—weep. Need we say more?

Upbeat, remixed or just with piano, this lush track spawned voyeuristic tendencies in us all.

2. Bad Romance*

Legendary, this smash really established her as the icon she is today.

1. So Happy I Could Die

When you came home after a wild Friday night out with the boys, this is the song you play drunk in bed with a blunt, reminding yourself that life is just so fucking sweet, and this is just the beginning of great things to come.
