Today we’re going to take apart with you the tunes of Goo Goo Muck Chords by The Cramps and Bloody Mary, performed by Lady Gaga on piano, guitar and ukulele, it also the song from the Wednesday dance scene that has gone viral on all social media, including YouTube and Tik-Tok. For starters.
Let’s listen to this tune from start to finish.
In the original scene, Wednesday Addams danced to the song Goo Goo Muck by The Cramps, but Tiktokers reimagined the episode and matched it with a very different soundtrack. For some reason, users chose the track Bloody Mary, performed by Lady Gaga.
Wednesday showcases her dancing skills in the fourth episode of the darkly hit Netflix. This episode, as well as the entire season, is set at Nevermore Academy, which is designed for outcast teens with unusual abilities. However, Wednesday proves to be too much of a standout even by the standards of that school. This is evident in the swirling scene – in the plot, the heroine’s dance grabs everyone’s attention by its strangeness. In addition, unlike the other students dressed in white, she appears in a black evening gown.
The dance from the series was so liked by the users of Tik-Tok, that now they are trying to repeat the movements of the heroine exactly to the song of Lady Gaga. The song, by the way, although it did not sound in the original scene, but still fits it well in meaning. The chorus of Bloody Mary is completely devoted to the passionate dance of the lyrical heroine.
