“Brooklyn Nights” is a song written by Lady Gaga on September 18, 2010, when she was in Charlotte, North Carolina, for the Monster Ball Tour. She talked about having written a new song and references it as “Charlotte” Nights. Before she played You and I at the show, she said “I did write another song today while I was here in North Carolina”, which she called “An impressive and interesting place” because of an “adult shop” she visited where “the pornography was staggering… Congratulations on your triple-X stores!” So she “got really inspired” to write “A great song here.”. The song for her ARTPOP album. She revealed the song title on September 20, 2013 via Twitter. The song was not included in the ARTPOP album, but Gaga confirmed the song would be availible [sic] through the ARTPOP app during a Twitter Q&A.
