7. Too Far Gone
Gently sung by Cooper’s Jackson Maine, Too Far Gone is a beautiful metaphor for the major character’s constant struggle throughout the movie. Due to having been hooked on alcohol since a young age by his father, Jackson spent his rest life drinking himself with the pain of lacking his parents’ love.
In this song, Jackson is crying out about his own failings. Meanwhile, he is also explaining how his relationship with Ally has saved him.
Shallow is the first song written by Ally to be shown in the movie. It is truly the heart of the film. When Jackson first invites Ally to attend at his concert, he surprises the aspiring star by inviting her to sing her very own song on stage.
Shallow becomes the signature song of the duo. Whenever they perform it together, we clearly feel how perfect they are for one another.
5. Always Remember Us This Way
Another song written by Ally, Always Remeber Us This Way was a clear metaphor for the two characters’ relationship. Created during what might have been the peak of their relationship, this song memorialized the moments that they had together.
Ally was afraid of performing the song for the first time on stage and Jackson convinced her by saying her “I love you” for the first time.
4. Look What I Found
Look What I Found, the very first song Ally recorded once signing her to her new record label, truly showed the new artist’s talent for songwriting. This single showed how talented Ally really is while she would go on to make more mainstream, less creative music.
Look What I Found is one of the last great examples of her wonderful talent, appearing just before Ally sells out for more mainstream popularity.
