If you are not yet a fan of pop standards, this could quite possibly change your mind. In a track taken from Tony Bennett's current #1 hit album Duets II, he and Lady Gaga deliver an energetic version of "The Lady Is a Tramp." The song originated in the 1937 Rodgers and Hart musical Babes In Arms. The video features Lady Gaga's powerful vocals and turquoise hair. She and 85 year old Tony Bennett dance and share a kiss. Tony Bennett says of Lady Gaga, "She was so spontaneous and improvised. What's interesting about her, other than any person I've ever met in the entertainment world, she changes from day to day." The entire clip is tremendously fun. If you like this, be sure to dig deeper into Duets II. It is Tony Bennett's first #1 album in a career that spans more than 60 years.
