“Alejandro” is credited as a synthpop song with Europop influences, and is influenced by ABBA and Ace of Base. The Ace of Base influences are prominent in the beats of the song, the vocals and the melody and lastly, in Gaga’s non-English accent while singing the song. The words are slurred in her mouth while consisting of an uplifting melody. It incorporates the melody from the violin show piece “Csárdás” by Italian composer Vittorio Monti. The song opens with the weeping violin, as a distressed Gaga sings: “I know that we are young, and I know that you may love me/But I just can’t be with you like this anymore, Alejandro.” The track then changes to a stomping Europop beat. Gaga bids her ex-lovers farewell with a bitter-heart pre-chorus where she sings: “You know that I love you, boy/Hot like Mexico, rejoice!/At this point I’ve got to choose/Nothing to lose.” By the end of the song, the three protagonists – Alejandro, Fernando and Roberto – are bid farewell by Gaga.
