You should have just titled this one, "contractual obligation," Gaga. Seriously, what's the difference? You had X amount of minutes to fill with the label demanding a between-album shelf-filler, and you needed something tossed together quickly -- hey, I understand -- but, JAYSUS... at least TRY and disguise things a bit better next time, okay? Don't be so blatant.

Alejandro sounds like a throw-away from an old Ace Of Base album -- and by that I mean something (!!!) actually not good enough to have made it onto an Ace Of Base album (!!!). What was the seed here, Gaga... was it I SAW THE SIGN...?!! Good God. ABBA could have done this -- in fact, I think they actually DID do this. (!) I note the clever use of the word "Fernando" within the song -- that's almost an inside joke, right there (for those of you who don't get it, Fernando was the title of an old ABBA single (and if ABBA's version was in B-minor, then Gaga didn't even bother with a transposition)). It might not be a direct ABBA rip, but hey... it's a wink, and I definitely get the joke. Let's hope ABBA's lawyer's are tone-deaf, at least until the 1970's-era copyright runs out.

Look, Gaga: stop this garbage. Tell the record company next time that you're simply not ready to drop the album. They'll understand. You're lucky you got a Top 10 single out of what would have been, for most acts -- as they call these things in tennis -- an UNFORCED ERROR. You won't get this lucky twice force-feeding the product, and YOU KNOW IT. Fill the product pipeline with a live unit, or maybe a re-mix collection (it's probably too early to do a greatest hits) but for crying out loud, STOP THE RECYCLING OF RANDOM OLD SLUDGE FROM YESTERDAY-RADIO.

3 stars, just because I'm feeling generous.

ABBA did it better -- and Ace of Base probably would have done it better, as well.

'nuff said.

I love this song, and amazon makes it totally worth it because unlike stupid iTunes, you can keep downloading it to a new phone, or redownload it if your internet dies or something in the middle of the download, all for free.
See iTunes, if u loose internet connection in the middle of the down load, or your power goes out, or you get a new computer you have to buy the song all over again, trust me, I experienced that huge problem with iTunes MORE THAN ONCE.
Where as Amazon is awesome cause it's all on your account, so you just log in and it's there, and it shows that you payed the $1 for it so it's yours. Even if you get a new phone, or iPod, or loose internet connection or whatever... your logged it, it's your account you payed for it, its all leagle, and it's yours, for like EVER. :D And (like I said above) if you loose internet connection you can retry the download unlike iTunes :D
In my own PERSONAL opinion I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMEND you download songs, and buy songs from Amazon.com verses buying it on iTunes. c:

I love this song.... have since before I knew who sang it. I heard it on the radio twice then was determined to look it up. Loved it since. The video is great as is everything that Gaga does. I'm not obsessed or running out to see everything she does.This song is a deep inside relatively unique song that inspired me emotionally and I enjoy it every time I relate. No matter what people say or think I really don't care. I have liked this song since I heard it and will continue to indulge in enjoying it for a while longer. Every so often.... i get a need and feel like I need to be or have Gaga near. so i listen. and then I am one less need then I started.

....come on why are you looking at the reviews? you already know this song and if you like it or not before you buy it, it's ridiculously popular because it's cheap pop music, catchy and fun but with not a lot of substance.... The sound quality is nice. Go ahead, get it.

Great song!!!

I love the lyrics, how you're so afraid to love that even if you can't resist to be with that person you still tell them no. And how Alejandro tries to fight through that since Lady Gaga's past lovers Fernando and Roberto who hurt her and made her terrified to ever have a physical and emotional relationship with someone.

The beat is amazing and Lady Gaga sounds sublime as well

Overall a great single and a dark breezy tune for summer!
Way superior than Katy Perry's vapid California Gurls,
Which was mindless pop music at it's best.

Lady Gaga rocked this song!
Amazing!
