Some of her best work hasn't even seen the light of day.

1. Captivated

Performed: 2005

Behold, Lady Gaga when she was still Stefani Germanotta. This beautiful ballad is an original piece she wrote while attending New York University. I dare you to tell me it didn't give you feels.

2. Electric Kiss

The second part to her performance on that same day at NYU. If this doesn't prove her singing and piano playing talents, I don't know what will.

3. Wonderful

A third beautiful song written around the same time. Gaga later made a studio version of the song, which leaked in 2008.

Here's the studio version.

4. Rockshow

This is an early gem from The Fame era. Although Rockshow didn't make the cut for the final album, it certainly had the potential of being a great hit.

5. Let Love Down

I don't think this song was even a contender for The Fame, probably because ballads don't sell well. But you can definitely hear a resemblance to Brown Eyes, which was Gaga's ballad of choice for the album. (I like this one way more than Brown Eyes, to be honest.)

6. Fooled Me Again

How did this one never make it on an album? No. Words.

7. Second Time Around

Leaked: 2009

It's SO 2000s! For some reason, it makes me think of sitting in Supercuts waiting to get my haircut. But it's so catchy!

8. Fashion

Featured: 2009

Okay, this one's *kinda* cheating because it was actually released on the soundtrack for Confessions of a Shopaholic. But Gaga still never included it in any of her own works, which is practically a crime, if you ask me.

NOTE: Not to be confused with Fashion!, which is a newer song that came out on ARTPOP in 2013.

9. Vanity

Yet another reject of The Fame. But Gaga did perform the song on her Monster Ball Tour, which is something. Plus, fun fact: it was also featured in the movie Beastly in 2011.

10. Kaboom

Leaked: 2009

To be fair, this song is sung by an artist named Kelena. But Gaga did write it, and she does come in for part of it toward the end (I think?). It's still good, okay? Take it or leave it. :P

11. Reloaded

Leaked: Between 2009 and 2010

This is a true Gaga song, I promise. It also features Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, with whom Gaga collaborated on several songs.

12. Earthquake

Leaked: 2010

This one sounds very Cher-ish to me, at least in the beginning. Also, did you catch those lines from the bridge of Fashion of His Love? The hardcore fans will know what I'm talking about. ;) Earthquake was reworked into Fashion of His Love for Gaga's Born This Way album in 2011.

13. Take You Out

Leaked: 2011

True or false: Gaga actually wrote a song for the World Cup. True! This song was written in 2008 for another artist to perform in the World Cup. Sadly, it never actually became a World Cup song, but it was leaked a few years later for us all to enjoy.

14. Stuck On Fuckin' You

Leaked: December 25, 2011

This is a great example that Lady Gaga can do literally anything she wants. This country rock song didn't make the cut for Born This Way, but Gaga released it on Twitter as a Christmas present to her little monsters in 2011.

15. Princess Die

Performed: 2012

This is definitely one of my favorites, touching on familiar topics of the fame and death of celebrities. It didn't make it on ARTPOP, but Gaga *said* she would release it via the ARTPOP app sometime after the album's release. (We're still waiting, Gaga.)

16. Brooklyn Nights

Leaked: March 15, 2014

Who wouldn't love Gaga's ode to her hometown of New York City? This song was also cut from ARTPOP, also with the promise of a release via the app. (Again, Gaga, still waiting.)
