There are few singers in the last decade that gained as much fame as Lady Gaga did. Plus she can look back at a career full of hits and memorable moments, unlike most popstars having some hits but none of them being remembered years after. Lady Gaga is a phenomenon, the Madonna of the 2000s and the 2010s.
"Bad Romance" is truly Gaga's signature song.
It has everything that makes her, and more.
It has her extravagance, all the glitter and glamour, as well as her unique style and diva-like behaviour.
But on the hand, it is also very catchy, has heavy and memorable beats and synthesizer melodies.
Gaga's singing varies from her typical monotonuous, almost boy-like verses to an enormously strong and melodic chorus.
"Bad Romance" is not only a memorable earworm, but also well produced and not unlikely Gaga's best song. Also, it's quite possible that it's going to be a classic in a few decades.
"Bad Romance" is not overly sexual or vulgar, but has some uses of b****h.
The music video shows a burned corpse that looks rather graphic.
