Mane Event: Top 10 Pop Songs About…Hair? (page 10)
1. “Hair”-[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm]
Gaga’s new album Born This Way draws a lot of inspiration from hair metal, which we think is part of the genius tongue-in-cheek metaphor behind this song. She took a 20-year-old “masculine” theme of motorcycles, teenage rebellion, and crazy hair and made it into a story a girl could identify with.
I’ve had enough, this is my prayer/That I’ll die living just as free as my hair/I’ve had enough, this is my prayer/That I’ll die living just as free as my hair/I’ve had enough, I’m not a freak/I’ll just keep fighting to stay cool on the street/I’ve had enough, enough, enough/And this is my prayer, I swear/I’m as free as my hair.
