    Actually, this song appears on the Japanese import version. Also on this are:

    Maestro Alex Gregory: "Alejandro"
    Sierra Hull: "Marry the Night"
    Sarah Jarosz: "The Edge of Glory"

    plus the cuts previously mentioned, though they appear as hidden tracks due to copyright issues:

    Bobby Osborne: "Tuned This Way" with Lady Gaga on vocals
    Evan Marshall: "Error on a G-String"

    Yes, it's an April Fool's spoof, as was last year's Collings Fretless Bass Mandolin which some never figured out. But watch. Someone will be along a few posts later asking the same question. It's the best part of it all.

    If you'll notice, the phony Elderly page is actually hosted on mandolincafe.net and the buy link leads you nowhere. The amazon.com link is actually just a screen shot image doctored and posted on the Cafe as well.

    I would have been fooled if you had just made it about Taylor Swift.
    I saw Homer & Jethro once. This mandolin therapy isn't helping me get over it.

    C'mon, Taylor only plays a six stringed mandolin tuned like a guitar!

    I heard Lady Gag used the money raised to modify a headstock for her follow-up album.

    I'm pretty sure this may earn me a cold corner of the Bluegrass afterlife.

    Great idea. Here are easy instructions for adding the Lady Gaga album art as your personal avatar:

    Users: go to to your avatar upload page
    Click "Use Custom Avatar"
    Replace the address in Option 1 with this web address (copy and paste it in):

    I'm not sure it's a "great" idea - I'm just having some fun. If everyone does that - and I KNOW there are lots of little monsters lurking here - we might not be able to tell who's who any more!

    OMG, you so got me with this prank! When I noticed it wasn't still up, my first thought was that people had been so annoyed that you took out out of the lead slot. Kudos to your wit. I fell for it hook, line and sinker (though I was too appalled to actually read the story).

    I understand that Lady Gaga and Sam Bush will be dancing together on the video.

    I'm just seeing this now—so you're saying I've missed the opportunity to make a goofball of myself by trying to order it? Dang!

    I find its never too late to make a goofball of myself.

    The most embarassing is to realize its a prank while you are telling others with enthusiasm:

    "I saw this thing and it said that... ummm.... oh, never mind."

    The strange and horrible stuff I want to believe.
    As much as I post, I pick a whole lot more. Just sayin'

    My favorite part of the Gaga caper:

    On the Elderly site where it lists the tunes:

    You and I - Dan Beimborn with special guest Justin Bieber

    Splorted my coffee on that one.
