Criticism of the song
Rolling Stone wrote: “This might sound crazy in the press – this song is a power ballad with some club beats and the saxophonist Clarence Clemons of the late participation, but somehow it seems quite normal when you hear it. There is an element bland, but it is absolutely charming and catchy. If one of the new songs Gaga deserves to be a great success, is this. The inclusion of Clemons is an inspired touch that enhances the atmosphere of stadium rock of the ’80s, but his Performance is amazing and is one of the best of her career.”
