Tony Bennett + Lady Gaga = Musical Awesomeness

Tony Bennett is one of the old school bad asses in music that can be in his 80's and still own audiences.  Not only has he been a legend for years with a ton of classic albums released over the years, but he's still releasing albums that have the old school vibe but mixed with current performers.  In "Duets 2" Bennett probably does one of the most odd yet awesome collaborations ever, as he joins the one and only Lady Gaga to bring us "The Lady is a Tramp."

Now there are tons of Gaga haters out there who trash everything she does, but our crew has always agreed that Gaga is already an icon and will continue to be one of the biggest superstars in music for years to come.  This song backs up that claim even more, as Gaga shows she can hang old school style with a guy who's had legendary status for years.  This song is far from anything we've heard from Gaga before, but serves as a reminder that Gaga is a classically trained singer and musician, and is no joke when it comes to music.

Tony's album also has a mention worthy duet with Amy Winehouse, which took place just before her death.  Winehouse sounds like she came from the same era as Tony Bennett, so hearing those two together wasn't as shocking as Gaga, but still awesome to hear.  To add to it all, there is actually a Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga music video to go along with the song.  With no flashy effects or usual music video craziness, this is a great straight up in the studio singing the song type video.  Check it out below:
