If you’ve listened to Lady Gaga‘s “Born This Way” as many times as we have, it may be time for a fresh look at the song. Thankfully, New Wave revivalist Twin Shadow heard your pleas and delivered a remix as fun and exhilarating as the original song.
With a bass line straight out of Michael Jackson’s “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’,” Twin Shadow completely reworks the track, knocking out the hand claps and shiny synths in favor of dirty drums, slap bass and electro buildups.
The remix still retains the original’s dance floor-friendly vibe, but aims for the dark corners of an after-hours spot rather than Gaga’s “Hands in the air!, Everybody’s happy!” feel. We approve.
