Gaga’s back & more Madonna-y than ever! I think ‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race’ has a new theme song!

2010 was the year of ‘uplifting’ songs targeted at the world’s downtrodden souls — see Katy Perry‘s “Firework,” Ke$ha‘s “We R Who We R” and Pink‘s “Raise Your Glass” — but it’s 2011 now, and Lady Gaga has reemerged to blow them all out of the water. But does she? Her highly-anticipated new single “Born This Way” dropped Feb. 11, and even if you consider yourself a Little Monster, you can’t help but draw a comparison to Madonna‘s 1989 single “Express Yourself.”

Listen to “Born This Way” and “Express Yourself” below, and tell us what’s on your mind:
