On this Lady Gaga remix album, 10 producers and DJs sink their teeth into her meaty catalog — with predictably uneven results. Stuart Price gives "Paparazzi" a breezy shuffle that diffuses the track's gritty tension, Marilyn Manson roars unnecessarily on "Love­game," and Glam as You add a bloopy bounce to one of Gaga's coolest grooves, "The Fame." Passion Pit do the most effective surgery on "Telephone," sliding arcade synths under Chipmunks-speed vocals — a makeover beautiful and grotesque enough to earn Gaga's seal of approval.

    “Money For Nothing”

    Dire Straits | 1984

    Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
