Song of the Day
Vitamin String Quartet - Bad Romance
--------------Lots of times you hear artists pay tribute to other artists by singing their own rendition of the song. This usually means singing the lyrics, but not for Vitamin String Quartet. The string quartet has done tributes to everyone from Panic at the Disco to Imogen Heap, but this tribute to Lady Gaga is quite fantastic.
Gaga writes all of her songs on piano before bringing them to the studio, so deep within the heavy machinery sounds of her album The Fame lies a maze of classical roots. The Vitamin String Quartet performance of "Bad Romance" sounds more like a baroque classic than a new millennium hit, blending genres perfectly.
