Lady Gaga – I Want Your Love

With an assist from Nile Rodgers, Lady Gaga has covered the 1979 Chic classic as a promotion of Tom Ford’s latest line. Rolling Stone reports:

In the Nick Knight-directed video to accompany the Chic cover, models dance down the runway like it was a Soul Train dance line, with Gaga herself showing up to showcase some of Ford’s skimpier designs. “Love you Tom, love you Nick. love you Nile. Beautiful day filming w/ 3 talented, brilliant, & CHIC gentlemen. #TomFord,” Gaga tweeted after the “I Want Your Love” video dropped on Tom Ford’s official site. For the cover, Ford first asked Rodgers to update his C’est Chic disco funk classic and then recruited Gaga to provide vocals on the track.

I was afraid to click play on this as the original is one of my all-time favorite tracks, but with Rodgers on board it’s actually pretty good.

RELATED: The 1979 original stayed on the US pop singles charts for nearly six months, eventually peaking at #7. Chic has been nominated to the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame nine times, but has never won induction.

        I noticed him too and couldn’t take my eyes off him. He’s a hottie and has some sexy moves. A girlfriend of mine once told me that a guy dances the way he makes love. I doubt that is true, but just in case it is I’ve been told that I’m a very good dancer 😉

  • Ginger Snap

    Sometimes I long for the days I could hang onto my anorexic body and wear designer clothing. I do prefer my life now though. Good job Gaga.

    • GanymedeRenard

      I’m sure you look perfect the way you are. Besides, I don’t think Gaga would be considered anorexic at all. 🙂

      • Ginger Snap

        I was admiring some of the models that surround her particularly the dark skinned very thin one. I’m not sure woman or man but don’t care Beautiful to look at. I am quite happy my skin now as staying that thin was a full time job I stopped having time for in my 30’s. I just see youth sometimes and feel the longing for it to return. The beauty of youth is wasted on the living of their lives.

  • GanymedeRenard

    “I want Tom Ford. I want Tom Ford! I want Tom Fooord!”

    Aside from that, this homo here absolutely loves disco (how predictable), even if he wasn’t even around at its peak. 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBXv37PFcAQ

  • Duh-David

    I miss those majestic bells from the original.

  • Hip Byroads

    I like this better than the original and I thought disco was dead.

    • DutchBoy74

      You should check some NuDisco and deep NuDisco on youtube and di.fm

      It’s starting to make a comeback.

      • Hip Byroads

        Yeah, I’ve heard some of it. Early 90’s house also seems to be being revisited.

  • motordog

    Here’s a Soul Train line-dance video I’ve always enjoyed…

      I really hope high waisted bell bottoms don’t ever make a comeback

    • Ginger Snap

      I was an 80’s Disco Queen and Fro’s still make me spot my panties but I’m glad they are long gone.

    • bkmn

      Is that Rosie Perez at the 1:40 mark? I know she was on Soul Train before she was a Fly Girl.

    • sergemstrp

      Oh,I Love that song !!

  • Megrim Twist

    Love it!

  • Jan Wesselius

    She wants my love, only in a very plutonic way.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    • paganguy

      One of my most favorite. 🙂

    • Ginger Snap

      Not true Disco but right on the tail end was Lime and I do so love them. So I’m giving them an Honorable Mention today.

        I was just taken back in time to 1982 and having just moved in with my lover, we went to see the movie Summer Lovers (Peter Gallagher (nekkid!) and Darryl Hannah (maybe nekkid, but I don’t remember) on vacation on beautiful Santorini).

        One of the songs on the soundtrack was “Your Love” by Lime. I loved it so much that I went looking for their album. Loved the whole thing. One of the albums I also bought a CD of, later.

        Thanks for the memories!!

        • Ginger Snap

          I’m glad I helped revive a happy memory. For you.That movie was one of my faces and I have the DVD in my never discard case. Lime is one of my favorite s from the 80’s. Twirl and swirl, twirl and swirl girl.

  • Jeffrey

    I sure wish I could have downloaded the song for my drive across the Mojave Desert tonight.

  • Ain’tNothingLiketheRealThing

    Dreadful vocals. Original Chic is infinitely better.

  • Strepsi

    This Nü Disco thread is AMAZING! My all time classic disco is this song, anyone else remember Montreal’s Club Poodles.. “A Place To Dance And Prance”?

  • Strepsi

    I love Montreal’s Chromeo, the Nu Disco “only successful Arab/Jewish partnership since the dawn of human culture”! HOT tunes.

    The androgynous black model is working me to no end.

    • ChitownKev

      Oh, Miss Thing’s face is just beat fo’ DAYS

    • Rolf

      Of everything presented on that runway, I felt the same way, she looked completely stunning, elegant and hot in that white suit.

    • rusty57

      For real.

  • Love the song, and the video is very slick, but I began to lose interest after a minute or so. There are a lot of well-dress men there, but they’re relegated to the sidelines, not oozing down the runway.

    • band

      Do you also have trouble appreciating dance music or opera that focuses on female vocalists?

  • Gerry Fisher

    You know what stands out for me in the original? That tremendous bass run. Niiice!

  • Dulce et Banana

    The androgynous black model is FIERCE AS FUCK!! She stomped that runway to dust.

  • licuado de platano

    I’ll love Chic!

  • Max_1

    Lady skipped the second verse and went straight to repeated chorus for two minutes…

    • band

      We don’t know what Lady did. It’s not a Lady Gaga video. It’s a video that Tom Ford produced to present his Women’s SS16 collection in lieu of a full-scale show in NYC or London or Paris or Milan. The primary footage is of a show he staged in L.A. for the express purpose of creating this video.

      You can bet Ford, director Nick Knight and, maybe, Rodgers had some say over how much—and which parts—of the song made the final cut. It’s unlikely Gaga had any input there.

      • Traxley Launderette

        I totally cosign this.

        It’s a flashy, beautiful promotion for stuff being sold by a smoking hot man.

        I have absolutely no problem with this. None at all.

  • dtlajim

    Boy does she sound Caucasian…

  • rayy

    70s music, 80s fashion–blah. I like the original better.

  • TexPlant

    Okay, just not my cup of tea

  • Charles

    Hearing it without context, I would have thought it was a Glee cover.

  • Traxley Launderette

    I love the original. I’m old enough to remember it as part of the soundtrack of my fledgling years.

    I love this version, too, and I love its use with the gloss of this video, especially knowing the models are easily a generation younger than me.

    It’s great to know that a well written song is always in style. I feel more connected to pop culture and fashion watching this — makes me glad to know I’m not that wrecked yet!

  • ChitownKev

    What’s even more fun than this video is all of these emoting queens all over youtube right now.
    I ain’t mad at ’em; in my day we emoted like this over Madonna but..but it’s like I feel like saying, “GURL, the world can SEE you.”

    • rusty57

      I know, right?

    Great archive they have!

  • Thom

    While Gaga has an absolutely beautiful voice I think the original version sounded better due to the superior instrumentation. The violins add a lot.
