“Sine from Above” by Lady Gaga & Elton John
This is actually one of the most-important tracks on Lady Gaga’s “Chromatica”, as its meaning also alludes to the meaning of the project as a whole. And yes, it is filled with some pretty-complex imagery, especially compared to some of the other tracks on the album. But ultimately, the best way to describe it is as the titular “sine” being synonymous with sound, as in a sound wave. Or more to the point, within the context of this song it is an alternate word for music.
So when the singers talk about “sine from above”, they are actually alluding to the idea of being healed by uplifting music. So basically, Lady Gaga and Sir John are celebrating how good music can also have curative properties.
