Bauhaus (the architecture) and music have more connection than one might think: Alma Schindler (immortalized in Tom Leher's song "Alma") married first Gustav Mahler, and then Walter Gropius.
"While married to Gus, she met Gropius,
And soon she was swinging with Walter
Gus died, and her teardrops were copious
She cried all the way to the altar."
"But Walt would work late at the Bauhaus,
And only came home now and then.
She said, "What am I running, a chowhouse?
It's time to switch partners again.""
