2009 Song of the Year - "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga

by Paul Siciliano

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.
