Every year in February I try to think of new things that I can discuss around the theme of love because let’s not be ignorant, it is that month AND it is a leap year – that’s meant to be special right?! Last year we celebrated the fact that the best things comes in twos anf looked at the word of Twoprov (not as couples but the way the comedy format is stealing and owning the stage), we have also looked at the comedy film and comedy as a whole! This year we head to the world of music.
Some of the songs I love are not necessarily my favourite songs, instead I find this is a sort of completely different topic all on it’s own. A song that I really love must do a few things to me – firstly make me smile because of the experience of listening to it whilst also making me feel a lump in my throat. All of these songs that I talk about over the next 29 days are songs I really do love and adore and I think their music construction, lyrics and song as a whole are wonderful.
At the start of this paragraph I said that these songs may not be my favourites – well that is true, whilst some may be ones that are, there are ones that are not but that does not mean I truly respect them as songs and these songs make me happy and sad at the same time I know they are in a completely different category and that is what the difference is.
Day 14 – Bad Romance, Lady Gaga
Why This song?
Firstly Happy Valentines Day and yes I deliberately made this song fall on this day because I personally think it is one of Lady Gaga’s best songs. I love the music video and I can’t wait to talk about it eventually on the Magic of Music Videos feature. There is so much to love about this song – i spent an evening learning the dance at university as well – that is how much I love this song.
Why do you love this song?
The song is so well constructed, the lyrics are so poetic and the chorus is so addictive. No other artist could create a song this magical and it doesn’t matter how many times you hear this song it never gets old and always feels so fresh. I have said a lot about songs on this list that there are moments that create a lump in my throat because of just how good that song is – for me this happens at the end when the french part starts coming in because the music is just absolutely amazing at that part it is so well created that you feel all the emotions through it as well.
