Lady Gaga plans to record Depeche Mode classic 'People are people'
From our US correspondent Olivia Roy. In an interview with the USA radio station QMS Radio, American recording artist Lady Gaga has said she wants to record a cover of Depeche Mode's 1984 hit song "People are people" adding "I could really give it the melody it never had". Right. 24-year old Lady Gaga (real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta - that was a mouthful), who wasn't even born when the Depeche Mode track was released, has been inspired by the many mash-ups between Depeche Mode and some of her songs that are floating on the Internet. So she says: "I spend literally hours on YouTube each day checking what people post about me, reading the comments and so on. And I was so surprised that many Depeche Mode fans appeared to be Lady Gaga fans. I didn't know the band existed until I saw a mash-up of 'Paparazzi' with 'Just Can't Get Enough'. I advise everyone to check out Depeche Mode, they are so underrated."

However, we advise miss Gaga to do some fact checking before she takes a shot at a Depeche Mode classic. In the same interview she namely appears to believe that Vince Clarke (Erasure) is still part of the band: "I'm a huge fan of Erasure and it was so funny when I heard that Vince is also a part of Depeche Mode! It's so unlike his Erasure sound!" So how did she end up choosing "People are people"? Simple: "My manager choose the song for me, he knows things so much better." Ok... well, you all know what to expect: an Erasure version of "People are people". That promises to be funny!

It's not the first time Germanotta hunts for covers. When she initially signed with Def Jam Recordings at the age of 19 (although she was dropped from Def Jam 3 months later) they introduced her to songwriter and producer RedOne, with whom she produced "Boys Boys Boys", a mash-up inspired by Mötley Crüe's "Girls, Girls, Girls" and AC/DC's "T.N.T.". Judge for yourself if Lady Gaga and Depeche Mode are a good fit: Lady Gaga vs. Depeche Mode - "Just Can't Get Enough Paparazzi" (Djs From Mars Bootleg Remix).



Another mash-up could convince us a bit more...
