This is an epic Fugue on a Theme by Lady Gaga

A truly monstrous piece of counterpoint.

Lady Gaga Fugue

A bit of a Prelude

It's worth starting this off with a bit of a doff of our music geek cap to the pop superstar. The music video to Lady Gaga's 2009 hit Bad Romance begins with Johann Sebastian Bach's Fugue in B minor from the Well-tempered Clavier Book I:

And, err... Fugue

So Gaga is clearly someone who likes a bit of Baroque point-on-point action. It's therefore quite appropriate that a YouTube notesmith has taken the theme to her 'Bad Romance' and turned it into a brilliant Bach-inspired fugue. 

And the pop superstar was lovely enough to get in touch with us and tell us how much she liked this contrapuntal rendering of her melody.

So that's nice. 

Let's close with a brilliant 'orchestration' of this fugue, cunningly assembled by another YouTuber.
