Ally Maines Powerballade now has an official music video. On Friday Lady Gaga revealed "I'll Never Love Again," her show-stop number from * A Star Is Born. * The video, which is currently available only from Apple Music, features Gaga-as-Ally's performance of the song riddled with film footage and flashbacks to more fortunate times with her husband Jackson ( Bradley Cooper ).
"I'll never love again" is the most heartbreaking song on the movie Soundtrack, a floating ballad about love and loss. Because of this, the song is a bit harder to memorize than, say, "Shallow" Ally and Jackson's twangy stage bop, which was heavily represented in the trailer of the film and immortalized as the song goes by "HAAAA AHH AH AH AH AHHH AH "(direct quote). Thanks to all this enthusiasm, "Shallow" is currently the pioneer of the film for an Oscar with the best original song. But "I'll Never Love Again" would be a more traditional choice and serves as a perfect presentation of Gaga's impressive vocal range. Who knows – maybe A Star Is Born will swarm the category and land two original song pitches. Or even three, when the academy wakes up and realizes the beauty-of-prey hymn, "Why did you do that?"
The last two versions of the film have Oscar precedent: the 1954 version with Judy Garland was nominated for six Oscars, including a Best Original song nod for "The Man That Got Away". The 1976 version with Barbra Streisand was nominated for four Oscars and won the trophy for "Best Original Song" with "Evergreen" Congratulations are for this statuette, which is probably a simple but luxurious life in Streisands gilded awards
"I'll never love again," the Gaga co-wrote with Hillary Lindsey, Natalie Hemby, and Aaron Raitiere, also have a heartbreaking backstory and deep personal resonance for the singer In an interview with Zane Lowe Gaga revealed that shortly before the filming of the scene in which she sings this song, she learns that her friend Sonja Durham, "I did not even stop seeing Bradley," Gaga said, "I just got in my car and started to use fa lead. And I missed her by 10 minutes. "Encouraged by Sonja's husband, Gaga returned to the set shortly thereafter and jumped into the scene." Bradley was so nice to me that day, he was so lovely, "said Gaga," he was like, "you have to do not do it too often. & # 39; And I just said, "I just wanna sing."
