I also think she's a better pop lyricist ("Poker Face" was written in collaboration with producer Red One) than people give her credit for.
Below is Chris Daughtry doing a live acoustic version of "Poker Face" that really is quite good. Okay, there are pronoun changes (which I find irritating) and I'm sad to report that the line "bluffin' with my muffin" does not get sung (really, really sad since the line makes me giggle like a loon). But otherwise, quite captivating really.
If anyone wants to know how deeply uncool I am, I had no idea Chris Daughtry was a failed American Idol contestant, despite the fact I actually have a copy of the band's CD somewhere kicking around on a hard drive.
(Just as an aside: A failed AI contestant? Seriously? For fuck's sake. Who the hell beat him? Someone actually talented, I hope. Although if I were a betting woman, I'd bet it was someone less talented with a little more pretty. And this, in a nutshell, is why AI irritates me and why I don't watch it.)
ETA: Per atlantisgrrrl, who said I really needed to post the actual Lady Gaga doing a vaguely torch-y acoustic version of "Poker Face." I really do dig this version.
