I never really noticed how big Lady Gaga had become until now. It just happened so quickly, so astronomically, so (insert choice of superlative)-ly, that I’m not sure I have any concept of it.
There is one benchmark, though: Everywhere I turn, I hear “Bad Romance.” Radio, orchestral, university a cappella, brass band – you name it, and it probably exists. Is there a greater indication of ubiquity and influence than all the different versions out there? I’ve no idea whether there actually are over 800 versions, but honestly, in five or ten years, I wouldn’t be surprised.
There are some good ones, especially a cappella, but I think my favourite one is this one, sung by The Other Guys, about a really famous, really recent, but hopefully not actually bad romance.

I live in Seattle, Washington and work as a legal assistant. I remember learning to read (comic strips) at a young age and nowadays try to read about 5-6 books a week. I love to travel, especially to Europe, and enjoy exploring smaller towns off the tourist track though London is my favorite city in the world.
OMG!! Thank you soo much Jean. What a treat! I love it!
I love it, Jean! Thanks for posting this.
