The Mother Monster has any number of creepy songs that would fit with this month’s theme (“Monster” and “Teeth” and “Judas” come to mind), but this one I think takes the cake.

It’s a bad choice, but one that is often made freely, a surrender to temptation, needing the bad and accepting the corruption that comes with it.
