Lady Gaga and Elton John duet on 'Hello Hello' - listen now!

You smell like Ke$ha
Elton John is many things.  Bloated boozebag.  Glitter queen.  Gifted musician.  And now he's for some reason he's decided to add "Animated Filmmaker" to his long, long resume. 

He and partner David Furnish have a musical adventure coming out this month called 'Gnomeo and Juliet' (see what they did there) and it looks super fun in a Shrekky kind of way.  More fun, though, is the news that the film will include a - wait for it - DUET BETWEEN ELTON JOHN AND LADY GAGA. 

We know.  We're excited too.

The track is called 'Hello Hello' and it is a ballady thing that clearly accompanies some poignant moment in the film, where something happens for some reason, and we all know to be sad about it because the music is slow and somber. 

We'd love to play you the song in all its Gaga glory, but there's a bit of a hitch regarding that.  While the duet track will feature in the film itself, the soundtrack album will inexplicably contain an Elton-only version.

Because that makes sense.

Anyway, here's a dodgy copy of the Gaga-John version.  To be fair it doesn't sound that interesting anyway so we're probably not missing much.  We probably could have told you that at the beginning of the article and saved us all some time, but whatever.  Here's 'Hello Hello.'
