Cher's version of "G!G!G!" is not so much a cover, as much as it is tribute to all of the dance floor fun that the original has provided. Her vocal track is echoey and surreal, like it was recorded in the middle of a rave on the Moon. The music contains all of the important notes of the original and adds digital flourishes which makes it feels new. It's spectacular and I can't wait for the album's nine other tracks.
:D exactly!

Vocal effects should have been a bit dialed down and that robotic vocals in the background are kinda annoying but as a whole its a very fun and catchy track to listen to, not the mention the best part of the song as the last minute and half of it were everything seems to flourish in the most amazing way.

Is there gonna be a video for it? She needs to!

This is seriously good and I can hardly resist putting this on repeat all day long.
Many miles many roads I have traveled
Fallen down on the way
Many hearts many years have unraveled

It's already the greatest gay song of all-time. :lol:

It is SO homosexual, it has increased my homosexuality by 100% after 1 listen - it's absolutely brilliant and it is seriously the most genius coming together of styles that I never knew I needed until now.

Love it.

This is the ultimate gay anthem. After all, who doesn't demand on Grindr to be given a man after midnight? :P

I love the production as it combines the original with Hung Up - the vocal effects are too much though :lol:

The vocal effects and the production are homage to Cher’s late 90s / early 00s work and it was done by the same producer Mark Taylor. Compared to her tracks such as The Music’s No Good Without You, Different Kind of Love Song, Real Love, Take it Like a Man, etc this one is quite tame actually.

I bet the madonna stans who “don’t like” this are listening to it on high volume while they type their negative comments ;).
