Lady Gaga’s ‘Bad Romance’ Named One of the ‘All-Time 100 Songs’ by Time
Time magazine has been around since 1923. It’s not exactly the beginning of “Time,” but it’s almost 100 years, so the publication has clout and has chronicled a large part of modern politics, culture, society and life as we know it. So it’s a big deal when the mag christened Lady Gaga‘s ‘Bad Romance’ to its list of the ‘All-Time 100 Songs.’
The song, where Gaga belts out lyrics about “wanting your love and all your love is revenge,” was co-written by producer RedOne and the Mother Monster herself and is one of her biggest smash hits. ‘Bad Romance’ served as the launch pad for her meteoric rise and really demonstrated what she could do vocally. Remember the video, where Gaga sported contacts that made her eyes appear double the size?
RedOne was stoked about the song’s inclusion on such an illustrious list. “I’m honored and humbled to have a track selected by Time Magazine as one of the All-Time 100 Songs,” the producer said in a statement. “It was a magical collaboration with Lady Gaga and I feel so fortunate for this recognition. I am a huge fan of so many artists included on the list — it’s an honor to be in such amazing company.”
RedOne’s resume is littered with other impressive, A-list jobs. He has worked with everyone from Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull, to name a few. In other RedOne news, he just launched 2101 Foundation, which aids and supports disadvantaged and underprivileged youth.
