The Fame track listing

"Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)" is a song written by Lady Gaga and Martin Kierszenbaum from The Fame.

Writing and inspiration

The song was written sometime in late 2007/early 2008 after Gaga and Kierszenbaum's first song together, "The Fame". One of the working titles used was "Nothing I Can Say (Eh, Eh)", while an alternative name registered on Gaga's BMI is "Eh Eh Nothing Else Left To Say". During one of her concerts in 2009 before performing the song, Gaga said the inspiration for the song came when two guys she was dating met and all she had to say was "eh eh." Although the lyrics of the song tend to confirm this, there's a strong possibility this was meant to be a joke.


Musically "Eh, Eh" is credited as a ballad compared to the rest of the dance fueled tracks from The Fame. The song has an eighties synth pop feeling in it. Gaga stated that the lyrics of "Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)" are about love and she explained that: "'Eh, Eh' is my simple pop song about finding someone new and breaking up with the old boyfriend.". According to the sheet music published at by Sony/ATV Music Publishing, the song is set in the time signature of common time with a moderate tempo of 94 beats per minute. Gaga's vocal range spans from B3 to C♯5 with the main key in which the song is set being E major. The song follows in the chord progression of E–B–F♯m–E–B–F♯m.

Commercial release

The single was officially released on January 31, 2009 in Australian music retail stores and online music outlets on February 2, 2009. "Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)" was the second most added song on Australian radio at the beginning of the week (December 15, 2008). It first began to receive airplay on all Today Network stations. This song was confirmed as an Australian single on Lady Gaga's official website on January 15, 2009. An official remix was also posted on her website that day. The official remix (Random Soul Synthetic Mix) is listed on Australian and French iTunes as released on March 3, 2009. It also features a brand new cover. On March 5, 2009 a remix made by Pet Shop Boys was made avaible for free download on Lady Gaga's Australian website. It is the only single from The Fame (except "Just Dance") to have an image from a photo shoot as the single cover instead of a photograph taken on set, except for the French single cover and remix cover.
The single and the video were released on February 28, 2009 in France and Switzerland on iTunes and was released physically on March 30, 2009. Unfortunately, it didn't chart on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the first out of two singles of her's (so far) that haven't charted on the Billboard.

Cherry cherry, boom boom

Boy we've had a real good time
And I wish you the best
On your way
Eh, eh

I didn't mean to hurt you
I never thought we'd fall
Out of place
Eh, eh

I had something that I love long long
But my friends keepa' tellin' me that something's wrong

Then I met someone
And eh! There's nothing else I can say

Eh, eh
Eh, eh
There's nothing else I can say
Eh, eh
Eh, eh
I wish he never looked at me that way
Eh, eh
Eh, eh
There's nothing else I can say
Eh, eh
Eh, eh

Not that I don't care about you
Just that things got so compliquées
Eh, eh

I met somebody cute and funny
Got each other and that's money eh
Eh, eh

I had something that I love long long
But my friends keep telling me that something's wrong
Then I met someone
And eh!
Cherry cherry, boom boom

All I can say is eh, eh

Synopsis and fashion credits

The video starts with Gaga riding a Vespa S. The first 20 seconds are largely camera shots of different men, Lady Gaga, and the city. The first main scene depicts Gaga with some friends laughing and joking in a restaurant while Gaga stand on the seat. Gaga then comes from around the block walking with her friends in pace and singing in the camera. She is shown in a bed asleep, and pulling the cover off to reveal pink high-heeled shoes. Gaga sings and cooks for a man (portrayed by Daniel Mays) in a house while dancing. She is also shown ironing clothes while the man is on the phone screaming at someone. The two harlequin Haus dogs that also appear in many of her other music videos also make an appearance here. Later, she lies on a sofa with her legs up on the man. She is seen kissing a man (portrayed by Johnny Markoudakis) passionately with her "Beats by Dr. Dre headphones" on. One of the last scene shows her in a yellow dress made of flowers and wearing a yellow watch (Baby-G BG5602-9) while singing to the song with a unique hairstyle which shows her hair pulled up and folded over. The scene then quickly switches back to her in bed.
When asked about the video, Lady Gaga responded she wanted to show a side of her people weren't familiar with.

I wanted to show a different side of myself — perhaps a more domestic girly side. And I wanted to create beautiful, stunning '50s futuristic fashion imagery that would burn holes in everyone's brains.

—Lady Gaga
