Bluffin with her what?

Here is a wonderful version of Lady Gaga's Pokerface by a band called The Leftover Cuties. The lead singer has a great voice and an even better nose.

But here is the thing, notice how utterly conventional this song sounds once you strip it of all the gimmickry. It sounds utterly conventional because it is utterly conventional. This is a song that could have been written any time in the last six or seven decades. An unkind person, say me, might venture to say that gimmickry is pretty much all Lady Gaga has got 'cause, well, it is all she has got.
