I remember in school, me and my friend were obsessed with the demo (which was the only version out at the time). I made him send me it through bluetooth :lol:
The demo was even better! I clearly remember that too
Awesomeness

Agreed.
BR is utterly amazing still but Telephone is a dated mess.
Lol

Yeah, I remember when the official version came out I was gutted because it wasn't as good as the demo :lol: Shame they removed the epic pre-chorus build up

I was recently watching the video for the first time in years and I forgot what a stunning piece of work it actually was! I remember it got quite some critism after the epicness of both Bad Romance and Telephone, but I think this video is definitely up there with her best as well.

I love the darkness, which is quite a contrast compared to the song, and the homoerotic vibe it has. She looks incredible as well and the typical Steven Klein style suits her very, very well.

I’ve always hated the video for this. One of her worst in my opinion!

Same. I think it's her worst and it doesn't go well with the song (which is one of her best).

"Alejandro" is definately among her worst music videos but I don't think its her worst at all.

"Eh eh (there's nothing else I can say)", "LoveGame", "The edge of Glory", "Applause", the over the top mess that was "G.U.Y" and "Million reasons" are all worse music videos than "Alejandro".

it's one of her rare songs that didn't age badly. I think it's still quite nice to hear and it's remembered by people, which is what matters as well
