The powerful ballad of Ally Maine now has an official music video. On Friday, Lady Gaga He released "I'll Never Love Again", his impressive number of * A Star Is Born. * The video, currently available only on Apple Music, features Gaga-as-Ally's rendition of the song together with images from the film and flashbacks to happier times with her husband, Jackson (Bradley Cooper).
"I 'Never Love Again" is the most harrowing song in the film's soundtrack, a growing ballad about love and loss. Because of that, the song is a little harder to remember than, say, "Shallow": the bang Twangy Stadium of Ally and Jackson, which appeared largely in the trailer of the film and has been immortalized as the song in the one that Gaga goes "HAAAA AHH AH AH AH AHHH AH" (direct quote) Thanks to all that buzz, "Shallow" is currently the protagonist of the film to the Oscar for the best original song, but "I'm not Never Love Again "would be a more traditional choice, and serves as a perfect showcase for Gaga's impressive vocal range. A star has been born It will swarm the category and land two assents with the original song. Or even three, if the Academy wakes up and realizes the anthem of the beauty of the booty, "Why did you do that?"
The last two versions of the film have set a precedent for the Oscar: the 1954 version starring Judy Garland was nominated for six Oscars, including a nod to the best original song of "The Man Who Escaped." The 1976 version starred Barbara Streisand He was nominated for four Oscars, collecting the trophy for the best original song with "Evergreen". Congratulations for that statuette, which has probably been living a simple but luxurious life in the golden trophy of Streisand since then.
"I'll never love again", which Gaga co-wrote with Hillary Lindsey, Natalie hemby Y Aaron Raitiere, It also has a heartbreaking background story and a deep personal resonance for the singer. In an interview with Zane Lowe, Gaga revealed that just before filming the scene where she sings that song, she knew that her friend Sonja Durham, who had been fighting against stage IV cancer, was dying. She immediately left the set. "I did not even stop to go see Bradley," Gaga said. "I got into my car and started driving. And I missed her for 10 minutes. "Encouraged by Sonja's husband, Gaga returned to the set soon after and jumped onto the scene." Bradley was so beautiful with me that day, he was so loving, "Gaga said." He told me: & # 39; You do not have to do it many times & # 39; And I just told him: "All I want to do is sing."
