MONDAY MUSICAL MOTIVATION: YOU & I


"Yoü and I" is a song by American recording artist Lady Gaga and will be released as the fourth single from her second studio albumBorn This Way(2011). Written by Gaga and co-produced with Robert John "Mutt" Lange, "Yoü and I" is a rock and roll-influenced song that samples Queen's "We Will Rock You" (1977) and features electric guitar by Brian May. The song was debuted by Gaga in June 2010 during her performance at Elton John's White Tie and Tiara Ball. Footage of the performance appeared on the Internet, and positive response encouraged her to incorporate the song into her setlist for The Monster Ball Tour. She subsequently performed the song on Today to a record crowd in July 2010, and on The Oprah Winfrey Show in May 2011.
"Yoü and I" was inspired by Gaga's relationship with former boyfriend Lüc Carl, and is a slow tempo song featuring instrumentation from electric guitars and piano, with Gaga and Lange providing background vocals. The song received positive critical appreciation, with reviewers listing it as one of the highlights from Born This Way. After the release of the parent album, "Yoü and I" charted in Canada, United Kingdom and the United States, due to digital downloads from the parent album. Season ten American Idol contestant Haley Reinhart performed "Yoü and I" in May 2011 prior to its release, earning positive reviews. Her studio recording was released to the iTunes Store as a single, and appeared on the compilation albumAmerican Idol Top 5 Season 10.
The accompanying music video for "Yoü and I" was released on August 16, 2011 and was shot by Gaga's long-time collaborator Laurieann Gibson inSpringfield, Nebraska. The video features Jo Calderone, Gaga's male alter ego, who is also featured on the single's cover, and Yuyi, her mermaid ego. The main concept behind the video was Gaga's journey to be with her beloved one, and was portrayed through an assortment of scenes displaying her in various avatars, including the previous two mentioned. After its release, the video was met with positive reception


"Yoü and I" was written by Lady Gaga and produced by Gaga and Robert John "Mutt" Lange,[2] and was one of the first songs previewed from the album. Gaga said that the song was written in New York, while she was busy playing her old piano. The singer had first played "Yoü and I" at Elton John's White Tie and Tiara Ball in June 2010.[3] She said that the song was bit of a "rock-and-roll tune", predicting that it may not be released as a single from Born This Way, but that it will remain "very dear" to her heart.[3] Footage of the performance appeared on the Internet soon after, and positive response encouraged Lady Gaga to perform the song during the first concert of the North American leg of The Monster Ball Tour in Montreal.[4] Gaga told MSNBC's Meredith Vieira and Ann Curry that "'Yoü and I' was written about the most important person that I ever met."[5] Although Gaga did not confirm who that person is, People revealed it to be Lüc Carl, her former boyfriend she had made amends with. They clarified that "Yoü and I" talked about how they had got back together in their relationship.[6] She further explained how the relationship became the inspiration of "Yoü and I", to Don Sheffield of Rolling Stone, in their July 2010 issue:

I wouldn't have been as successful without him [Lüc Carl]. I've never really loved anyone like I loved him. Or like I love him. That relationship really shaped me. It made me into a fighter. After I broke up with him, I promised myself I would never love again and would make him rue the day he doubted me. But then I again moved back to him. [It was] love. But, you know, I don't really know much about love... I suppose if I knew everything about love, I wouldn't be good at making music, would I? I wrote this new song 'Yoü and I', it talks about us, me and him.[7]


It’s been a long time since I came around
It’s been along time but I’m back in town
But this time I’m not leaving without you

You taste like whiskey when you kiss me oooh
I’ll give up anything again to be your baby doll
Yeah this time I’m not leaving without you

You said sit back down where you belong
In the corner of my bar with your high heels on
Sit back down on the couch where we
Made love for the first time
And you said to me

There’s something, something about this place
Something about lonely nights and my lipstick on your face
Something something about my cool Nebraska guy
Yeah something about
Baby you and I

Been two years since I let you go,
I could’ve listened to a joke for rock n roll
And muscle cars drove a truck right through my heart

You taste like whiskey when you kiss me oooh
I’ll give up anything again to be your baby doll
Yeah this time I’m not leaving without you

You said sit back down where you belong
In the corner of my bar with your high heels on
Sit back down on the couch where we
Made love for the first time and you said to me,

There’s something, something about this place
Something about lonely nights and my lipstick on your face
Something something about my cool Nebraska guy
Yeah something about, baby you and I
You and I
You, you and I
You, you and I
You you and I
You and I
You you and I
You you and I

[piano solo]

You said sit back down where you belong
In the corner of my bar with your high heels on
Yeah you like the red ones
Sit back down on the couch where we Made love for the first time and you said to me,

There’s something, something about this place
Something about lonely nights and my lipstick on your face
Something something about my cool Nebraska guy
Yeah something about
Baby you and I

You and I
You and I
You you and I
You you and I
You and I

You you and I
You you and I
You you and I

Been along time since I came around
Its been along time but I’m back in town
And this time I’m not leaving without you
