Lady GaGa - Bad Romance (Hercules and Love Affair Remix)


Yes, this happened.


I'm confused as to why this isn't better than it is? Hercules and Love Affair was one of our favorite albums of 2008, if not our favorite. And "Bad Romance" is one of the better pop songs to be released this year. This should have been a match made in heaven. Instead, it sounds kind of awkward and mismatched.

I think maybe a funky 70s bass guitar loop like the one found on "Hercules Theme" would suit the remix better. Throw in the rumbling, rolling percussion of "Athene" and maybe slowed the vocal track a bit and we'd have a winning, throwback Hercules and Love Affair remix of "Bad Romance", instead we have a half-baked one, or the ones that you can tell were only made to pay the bills.
