Per Wikipedia, Here's Lady Gaga's song list. And if you're a die hard fan, you'll enjoy reminiscing.
"American singer and songwriter Lady Gaga has recorded material for five studio albums and three extended plays (EP), and has been featured on songs on other artists' respective albums. After being dropped from a contract with Def Jam Recordings, Gaga worked as a songwriter for Sony/ATV Music Publishing, where Akon helped her sign a joint deal with Interscope Records and his own label KonLive Distribution.
After signing with Interscope, Gaga began working on her debut album The Fame, which was released in 2008. It produced the global chart-topping singles "Just Dance" and "Poker Face". She collaborated with different producers, primarily RedOne, Fernando Garibay, Martin Kierszenbaum, and Rob Fusari. The album has influences of the 1980s pop music and discusses Gaga's love for fame while also dealing with subjects such as love, sexuality, money and drugs. Initially intended to be a re-release of her first album, an EP titled The Fame Monster (2009) included eight newly recorded tracks. Its tracks include "Speechless", written solely by Gaga, as well as "Alejandro" and "Bad Romance". The EP explores the darker side of fame.
Gaga's second full-length album Born This Way was released in 2011. She reunited with RedOne and Garibay, and sought new collaborators, including DJ Snake, DJ White Shadow, Jeppe Laursen, and Robert John "Mutt" Lange. Themes include sexuality, religion, freedom, feminism and individualism. Primarily influenced by synthpop and dance-pop, it incorporates musical genres which have not been previously explored by Gaga, such as electronic rock and techno. "Americano" and "Scheiße" include Spanish and German lyrics, respectively. She also appears as a featured artist alongside Justin Timberlake on The Lonely Island's "3-Way (The Golden Rule)", included on the album The Wack Album.
Gaga's third album Artpop, released in 2013, included the singles "Applause" and "Do What U Want". As executive producer, she enlisted longtime collaborators DJ White Shadow and RedOne, and for the first time Zedd and Madeon. Described as "a celebration and a poetic musical journey", the album revolves around her personal views of fame, love, sex, feminism, self-empowerment, overcoming addiction, and reactions to media scrutiny. In 2014, Gaga and Tony Bennett released a collaborative album titled Cheek to Cheek, which consists of jazz standards by composers George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, and Irving Berlin. Her fifth studio album, Joanne, which had Mark Ronson as the executive producer, is a more personal album, with family influences. Its genres go through country, funk, pop, dance, rock, electronic music and folk. In addition to her studio work, Gaga has recorded songs for film soundtracks, including "Til It Happens to You" from The Hunting Ground and "Fashion" from Confessions of a Shopaholic."
Here's a short snippet of Lady Gaga's biography per Wikipedia:
"Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta[a] (born March 28, 1986), known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She is known for her unconventionality and provocative work as well as visual experimentation.
Gaga began her musical career performing songs at open mic nights and school plays. She studied at Collaborative Arts Project 21 (CAP21) through New York University's Tisch School of the Arts before dropping out to become a professional musician. After Def Jam Recordings canceled her contract, Gaga worked as a songwriter for Sony/ATV Music Publishing, where Akon helped her sign a joint deal with Interscope Records and his own label KonLive Distribution in 2007. She rose to prominence the following year with her debut album, a dance-pop and electropop record titled The Fame, and its chart-topping singles "Just Dance" and "Poker Face". A follow-up EP, The Fame Monster (2009), featuring the singles "Bad Romance", "Telephone", and "Alejandro", also proved successful.
Gaga's second full-length album Born This Way (2011) explored electronic rock and techno. The album topped the US Billboard 200 and sold more than one million copies in the country during its first week. Its title track became the fastest selling song on the iTunes Store with over a million downloads in less than a week. Gaga ventured into R&B and disco with her third album Artpop (2013), which topped the US charts and included the single "Applause". In 2014, she released a jazz album with Tony Bennett titled Cheek to Cheek, her third consecutive number one album in the US. For her acting work in the television series American Horror Story: Hotel (2015–2016), Gaga won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in 2016. Her fifth studio album, Joanne (2016), incorporated genres such as country and pop, and she became the first woman to have four US number one albums in the 2010s when it topped the country's charts. In February 2017, Gaga performed the Super Bowl LI halftime show, which was met with critical acclaim.
Having sold 27 million albums and 146 million singles as of January 2016, Gaga is one of the best-selling music artists in history. Her achievements include several Guinness World Records, three Brit Awards, six Grammy Awards, and awards from the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Gaga has been declared Billboard's Artist of the Year and included among Forbes's power and earnings rankings. She was ranked at number four on VH1's Greatest Women in Music in 2012, finished second on Time's 2011 readers' poll of the most influential people of the past ten years, and was named Billboard's Woman of the Year in 2015."
