Music by Lady Gaga

Originally Performed by Lady Gaga

Applause" is a song by American singer Lady Gaga from her third studio album, ARTPOP (2013). It was released as the album's lead single through Interscope Records on August 12, 2013. Written and produced by Gaga, DJ White Shadow, Dino Zisis and Nick Monson, additional songwriters included Martin Bresso, Nicolas Mercier, Julien Arias and William Grigahcine. "Applause" was inspired by the cheering of her fans, which kept her motivated during the months she toured with the Born This Way Ball in pain, before cancelling it due to a hip injury, and pays respect to the art of performance. It is an electropop and Eurodance song built around synthesizers and hi-NRG beats, with lyrics addressing how Gaga is dependent upon her fans' adoration and how she lives to perform.

The song received generally positive reviews from music critics, who felt its chorus was catchy and favorably compared it to the material featured on Gaga's debut album, The Fame (2008). "Applause" achieved commercial success in a number of nations, topping the charts in Hungary, Lebanon, South Korea, and Spain while peaking within the top 10 in Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Scotland, the United Kingdom, and the United States as well as the top 20 in Australia, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Slovakia, and Sweden. It was also certified multi-platinum in Canada, Sweden, the United States, and Venezuela.

Lady Gaga : Arrangements for Treble Voices Vol 2 : SSA : Sheet Music Collection

Lady Gaga : Arrangements for Treble Voices Vol 2new

"Perfect Illusion" - Lady Gaga explodes on the charts with this rock-oriented dance tune. With pulsing, guitar driven verses and powerful vocals, this is a can't-miss song for show choirs and other choreographed performances. "Million Reasons" - After all of the wild costumes, crazy hair and over the top antics, Lady Gaga has proven herself to be an excellent singer and a fine musician. This power ballad draws out emotions and dynamics and will make a big statement in your program. You've given me a million reasons to go, but I just need one good one to stay. "I'll Never Love Again" - A Star Is Born became the breakout hit of the fall, garnering universal acclaim, immense box office receipts and a glowing word-of-mouth that made one thing abundantly clear: this music was very good. This climactic, no-holds-barred song gets a full choir treatment worthy of singers looking to achieve raw emotionality with grace.

Songlist: Applause, Perfect Illusion, Million Reasons, I'll Never Love Again

Ambassadors of Harmony : <span style="color:red;">Applause</span> : 1 CD : Jim Henry

Ambassadors of Harmony : Applause

This is the AOH's third spirited recording, and the fun, excitement and feelings of love and nostalgia that come though it are part of the group's tradition. Included is the "Toy Set" that wowed the audience at the 2001 international competition in Nashville. The centerfold of the liner notes is a full-color shot of the 115-strong group on stage in complete "Toyland" costumes, from clowns and roman soldiers to pandas, cats, sailors, space cadets, Spiderman - you name it. It all says "fun," loud and clear, and that's how the group sings. 12 songs are here: "Applause," "I'm Beginning to See the Light," "Through the Years," "My Honey's Lovin' Arms," the Turtles' "Happy Together," "The Music of the Night," "Toy Song," "Toyland," "Short People," "One Alone," "Tonight" and "Friends." That must have been an unforgettable performance at SPEBSQSA Nashville, and this is an unforgettable CD on many levels - most of all the pure, sweet barbershop harmony that flows throughout.

Songlist: Applause, I'm Beginning to See the Light, Through The Years, My Honey's Lovin' Arms, Happy Together, The Music Of The Night, Toy Song, Short People, One Alone, Tonight, Friends
