“The Edge of Glory” (Lady Gaga Cover)

    At first, the idea that Friendly Fires would be covering Lady Gaga seems sort of goofy, but being that both Fires and Gaga pull from a lot of the same ’80s and ’90s dance pop influences, Friendly Fires are maybe the best British band to cover Lady Gaga. So, with that in mind, below you can hear Friendly Fires covering “The Edge of Glory” on BBC Radio, and the best part is the fact they don’t change the lyrics, and that shimmering synth line in the back. Only Lady Gaga could make Friendly Fires do something that can be described as less over the top and dancy than the original.


    Friendly Fires’ Pala is out now.
