This is my very loose arrangement (ahem, derangement) of Pet Shop Boys' "Love Is a Bourgeois Construct."
It's an anti-love song with a side of barrel bombs, child slave labor, police brutality, natural disaster, and revolution.
You can listen to the original song here:

Everything in this composition is based (albeit loosely) on the harmonic progression and primary theme of "Love Is a Bourgeois Construct"—which is in turn based on a composition by Michael Nyman, which itself is based on a composition by Henry Purcell. In my arrangement (derangement), this harmonic and melodic material is chromatically inverted and developed in a variety of ways.
The intro and outro of the composition also consist of counterpoint I composed based on this material and the theme of Pachelbel's Canon.
I was planning on releasing this song on Valentine's Day, but I did not finish it in time. Not a problem, however: It is relevant any time.
