3. Maybe It’s Time
Towards the beginning of the film, Jackson is searched by a bar after one of his performances. Seeing no traditional bars, Jackson settles on visiting a drag bar to get his fix.
After meeting Ally and seeing what a great talent she was, Jack decides to wait for her. While he was waiting Ally, one of the queens requests the famous country star a performance. He gladly accepts and sings Maybe It’s Time. While Bradley Cooper as Jackson Maine has quite the gruff exterior, this performance, given quite early on in the movie, shows there’s a lot more going on inside his damaged soul.
2. Music To My Eyes
Performed by both of A Star Is Born’s leads, Music To My Eyes is a love ballad that Ally and Jackson Maine share with one another. This beautiful melody showcases both musicians at their strongest and how great their voices work together.
The best part of this song is that it really showcases how Jackson and Ally connected in the first place. What made Jackson notice Ally in the first place was her beautiful voice and talent for songwriting. The one thing that truly helped the two grow in their love together was working on music together.
1. I’ll Never Love Again
While Shallow might be the hit single from A Star Is Born, I’ll Never Love Again is the emotional climax that made every viewer shed at least one tear. The last song Jack wrote before taking his life, this song represented all the love he had for Ally, after all the ups and downs of their relationship.
Hearing Ally belt it out at the end of the movie is truly heartbreaking. What really takes that final scene over the top is when the film cuts to Jackson singing it for the first time. He is truly pouring his heart out while introducing it to Ally.
