Gaga Variations, or Gaga on Bach and tonality

Gaga, when you say stuff like this, how can I not totally <3 you? : “I was classically trained as a pianist and that innately teaches you how to write a pop song, because when you learn Bach inversions, it has the same sort of modulations between the chords. It’s all about tension and release. But I want to do something that speaks to everyone. To me there is nothing more powerful than one song that you can put on in a room anywhere in the world and somebody gets up and dances. If you put a classical piece on, everyone’s not gonna mobilize. It’s gotta be something that resonates on a visceral level.”
