"Marry the Night" is a song by American recording artist Lady Gaga. It was released as the fifth single from her second studio album, Born This Way (2011). The song was written and produced by Lady Gaga and Fernando Garibay, and was recorded on the tour bus during The Monster Ball Tour with Garibay. Revealed in February 2011, the song was inspired by the energy of Gaga's previous song "Dance in the Dark" and the love for her hometown, New York City. The song was released for promotion on Farmville, six days before the release of Born This Way.
"Marry the Night" is a dance-pop song influenced by house and electropop. The song features electronic church bells, a driving electro organ sound, techno beats and a funk-rock influenced breakdown. The lyrics are about Gaga's love of the night and partying, while serving as a homage to her hometown. The song received mostly positive reviews from critics. Reviewers also found influences of Italian disco music producer Giorgio Moroder and American rock musician Bruce Springsteen in the song. After the release of Born This Way, "Marry the Night" charted in some nations due to digital sales from the parent album. The song became one of Gaga's lowest charting singles worldwide. It peaked at number 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States, her only American single not to break into the top-ten.
Gaga directed the songs's accompanying music video, which was filmed in New York City. It tells the story of when she was signed by her label Interscope Records after being rejected by her first label, with scenes in a clinic, a dance studio, her own New York apartment and on a car's rooftop at a parking lot. She sports outfits by Calvin Klein Collection, Yves Saint Laurent and StÃ©phane Rolland. Prior to its release, the music video was teased with video stills and previews. Journalists wrote positive reviews for the video and appreciated its narrative theme. Gaga has performed the song in India's Formula One, the MTV Europe Music Awards, UK's The X Factor and others. She also recorded an acoustic version for her Thanksgiving Day special, A Very Gaga Thanksgiving. File Hashes
