'I Get A Kick Out Of You' review: Love-lane tour
Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have collaborated, once again, this time for the Love For Sale album. It is slated to release on October 1, but its first single I Get A Kick Out Of You is out. Its poster features Bennett sitting on a chair holding a sketch, while Gaga is seen adjusting his bow and staring at the camera. Here's our review.
Gaga and Bennett are 'celebrating the songs of Cole Porter'
Gaga and Bennett's meaning of addiction is different than others
So, what gives you kick? For some, it's adventure and thrill, for some it's life and its facets. However, it's different for Gaga and Bennett. She croons, "My story is much too sad to be told." Yet here she hums the story explaining what excites her the most. "Mere alcohol" doesn't even stand a chance to giving Gaga the "kick."
No kick is similar to what one gets from love
Gaga hymns in the track explaining how even cocaine terrifically bores her. What excites her the most is just a glance at her lover's face. On the other hand, Bennett, voicing Gaga's lover, complains that his partner does not adore his visible love for her. The track ends with, "I get a kick out of you." It will make you crave for your lover.
Gaga-Bennett's version pays rich tribute to Porter; gets 4.5/5
I Get A Kick Out Of You has been written by Gaga-Bennett, while the latter has produced it. Both collaborated for Cheek to Cheek (2014) and this time they are here for "celebrating the songs of Cole Porter." If compared, both the songs (by Porter and this duo) have the same effect, with a bit of musical twist. Verdict 4.5/5 stars.
