Overall Meaning

The song 'Bad Romance' by Lady Gaga is an upbeat dance-pop track with dark and heavy electronic undertones. The lyrics describe a dangerous and obsessive love. The chorus is dominated by the phrase "I want your bad romance" repeated several times, which expresses the singer's desire for a kind of love that is passionate, wild and uncontrollable, regardless of the consequences. Gaga's unique voice and her catchy hook make the song memorable and evoke a sense of drama.


In the bridge, Gaga shifts her focus to a more personal desire for love, "You know that I want you, and you know that I need you", although it's still clear that the type of love she wants isn't conventional.


The song's music video features a gothic, avant-garde theme with bizarre costumes and a story revolving around Gaga's transformation into a mutant. It has become one of the most viewed music videos on YouTube, with over a billion views.
