Why did Marry The Night flop?

Started by Perfect ionist with 34 replies so far

Marry The Night had some FarmVille deal on the start of the BTW era and MTW was actually used as a promo single first. MTN didn't had a momentum it deserved.

Most casual listeners would never understand what the **** she was trying to say with those lyrics.

It really is not a catchy song and the ending of the song is full of "screaming" and we know the GP don't like that.

The video was super long and for a non Gaga fan super boring too.

Yeah all of this. It's a song+music video made for her fans; to a casual listener they won't know wtf she's trying to say/the message.

It wasn't a underperformed single, it was actually a moderate hit in USA, when you get to the Top 40, you will know that you have a moderate hit. Those are the same reasons for Venus, Hair, Perfect Illusion and Do What U Want. I hate when Gaga have those screams in the end, that is why it wasn't a Top 10 hit, and also the video , that is why it did not crack the Top 5.

It was released at the end of the year and overshadowed by Christmas music on radio, ITunes, etc.

It went Gold in the US (PI....) and Silver in the UK (MR......) which is something the Joana hasn't done yet.

I have no idea I just know that I rewatched the whole video cause it is THAT good. I love it so much and it ages so goddamn beautifully.

In addition to what other members have said, she also waited too long to release it as a single too. Also, Marry The Night replaced Scheisse as she single (which was chosen by fans)

Because the song is too noisy especially at the end. like when the song ends I always felt so relief that there is finally silence..

That's false so many people around me actually watched the whole video and they weren't even fans to begin with.
