I will have to admit, I was a little late to the Lady Gaga phenomenon but not because I disliked her music. Quite the contrary. When I first heard clips of "Just Dance" it sounded like any Euro Pop song I had been listening to for the past 10 years. I did not get why it was so popular. When I finally broke down and heard the entire song, I got it. "Just Dance" is an exception dance-pop song. Of course, to most they all sound the same.
From there, I became a huge fan of Lady Gaga. The first time I heard "Bad Romance" was in Barcelona. I could tell the song would be a classic hit and follows Gaga's formula or interesting lyrics, sounds effects and a great beat. The video, as all, is creepy good fun.
