Lady Gaga included this song on her multiplatinum-selling album Born This Way, and she knew, even as she was writing it (while doing tequila shots with her father after the death of her grandfather), that she wanted a Bruce Springsteen feel to the track. So when she hit the studio, she called upon Clarence Clemons, who was eager to show off his skills. "I almost got a ticket I drove so fast," the longtime E Street Band sax man recalled to Rolling Stone about getting the call from Lady Gaga. "It was wild. I was so excited. I'm a Gaga-ite."
