A lot of things are terrible, but one thing that isn’t is the premiere of A Star Is Born, starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, and the film’s highly anticipated official soundtrack.
With original songs sung by Gaga and a shockingly impressive Cooper, keeping this thing on a loop is one of the only things guaranteed you to keep from screaming into the void this weekend (although, warning: You will definitely cry).
Instead of gushing about the whole thing for hours (which we could do), we decided to pick the top five karaoke songs from the A Star Is Born soundtrack, available today.
5. Always Remember Us This Way
This might be the best song on the album, but it’s a shade (or several) too bittersweet for karaoke. You might request it later in the night after too many drinks, when you don’t care if your fellow patrons see you cry as your voice cracks through the chorus. But it’s okay – they’re crying too.
4. Is That Alright?
Similar in tone to “Always Remember Us This Way,” “Is That Alright” is probably the Star Is Born equivalent of an Adele song (is that okay to say? Can’t you hear it too? I MEAN NO DISRESPECT THEY’RE BOTH GREAT CAN WE JUST ALL BE FRIENDS). While the other song is tinged with a sense that the memory is of a time past, “Is That Alright?” is about the giddy thrill of the present, and we love it.
3. Look What I Found
With an infectious beat and that first minute of snapping, “Look What I Found” is the perfect song to warm up an early karaoke crowd – buzzed and happy, but not yet ready for, say…
2. Why Did You Do That?
Cooper’s Jack may look down his nose at this song about butts, but it’s a bop, pictured in the film on-location at Saturday Night Live during a live Ally performance that feels like front row seats to Gaga herself. This is also the only song on the soundtrack that you can really dance to.
Few moments in cinema for the rest of our lives will compare to hearing Gaga’s soaring “aaaAAAHHHH AHHH HAAAA” for the first time in theaters for this trailer. It’s no less impactful in the film with the full song thrumming all around you, in your very veins as the drums crescendo. Let it fill bars and living rooms and make karaoke the best it can be. We’re all off the deep end.
