Lady Gaga is set to release her fifth studio album, Joanne, on Friday so let's count down our favorite songs from the eccentric pop superstar.

Gaga's catalog of hits and strong deep cuts continues to grow with each new album. The 30-year-old burst on to the scene in 2008 with the one-two punch of "Just Dance" and "Poker Face" and has continued to put out quality music from all different genres ever since. From the anthemic "Born This Way" to the dark "Paparazzi" to the jazz themed Cheek to Cheek collaboration with Tony Bennett, the singer has appealed to all types of music lovers all over the world.

For her next album, Joanne, Gaga is taking a more analog, folksy route, venturing into a whole new era of her already illustrious music career. But while we wait for her latest creative output, let's take a look back at our top 5 favorite Gaga songs:

5. "Paparazzi" - The Fame

Gaga perfectly satirizes the excess and frivolity of celebrity culture on her debut album, The Fame, especially on the track "Paparazzi", which centers on stalker culture and the lust for fame. The pop superstar proved she was here to stay at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, where her raw, blood-soaked performance of the song shocked the nation (especially Puff Daddy).

4. "Yoü and I" - Born This Way

Barn-burner "Yoü and I" shows off Gaga's muscular vocals in a way that many hadn't heard before. It also proves to be one of Gaga's most relatable singles, with simple yet timeless lyrics and a stadium-friendly sampling of Queen's "We Will Rock You".

3. "Marry the Night" - Born This Way

While not the chart-topping single the other tracks on this list proved to be, "Marry the Night" is one of Gaga's most dynamic, powerful songs in her discography. The song is a love letter to her New York roots and her embracing of the darkness, with a driving beat that continues to build until its euphoric final breakdown.

2. "Poker Face" - The Fame

"Poker Face" is really the song that made Gaga a household name. With sexually ambiguous lyrics, creative turns of phrase ("bluffin' with my muffin" alone) and that undeniable earworm of a chorus, it's easy to see why the nation became fascinated by the then-mysterious new artist.

1. "Bad Romance" - The Fame Monster

"Bad Romance" has everything you could possibly want in a Gaga song: a strong hook, soaring vocals, dark yet cheeky lyrics, and some clutch references to filmmaker Stanley Kubrick. It's hard not to think of this song without the iconic music video, a veritable masterpiece of surrealistic imagery that both confounded and fascinated the entire world.
