"LoveGame" is an electropop song recorded by American pop artist Lady Gaga taken from her debut album, The Fame.
The song has been critically appreciated for its catchy tune and the "I wanna take a ride on your disco stick" hook. Gaga has explained that the word 'disco stick' is a euphemism for the penis and was inspired by her association with a stranger at a night club. Musically carrying the vibe of underground New York discos, the song talks about love, fame and sexuality which is the central theme of the album. "LoveGame" has charted in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and other European countries. The song became another top five hit for Gaga in the United States, Australia and Canada.
The New York underground inspired music video for the song portrayed Gaga dancing through an underground subway station and in a parking lot. The music video was a tribute by Gaga to the New York lifestyle including its glamor, fans and fashion. The video has several qualities of Michael Jackson's "Bad" music video, which also took place in a subway station.In Australia, the music video faced a ban from being aired at the PG rated timeslots because of its sexual content. "LoveGame" has been performed live a number of times by Gaga, including her first headlining The Fame Ball tour where she performed it while wearing a geometric patterned short skirt and holding her trademark disco stick in one hand.
