Hot New Video Alert~ Lady Gaga “The Edge of Glory”

Music videos just aren’t what they used to be. Rarely are they water cooler fodder anymore or appointment viewing except when they come from an artist like Lady Gaga. Her last two vids were showstoppers with the biker meets Jesus “Judas” clip and the brilliant “Born This Way” (which should be a big contender at the MTV Video Music Awards later this year). And now, she has a new clip for her awesome new single “The Edge of Glory” that is currently climbing in the top ten of the pop charts. The interesting thing is actually how the video is a throwback to the videos of yore, more specifically the cheap simple vids of the early 80’s. I like that she tried something simple with this one and let the song speak for itself. However, it does seem rather uneventful and blase considering the song is so anthemic and propulsively amazing. I would’ve liked a bit more quick editing and better direction. But what do you think? Check out Gaga’s latest (which also features a cameo from sax great Clarence Clemons who is currently battling the aftermath of a stroke~ Get well Clarence!) below.
