Today is a great day to learn about Spotify's repeat function. There's a new movie coming out this year starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, maybe you've heard of it? It's called A Star Is Born, and it's a remake of a movie that's been remade approximately a million times (actually, three) which means there must be something special about it, right?
This year’s version, in which Gaga has her very first starring role, was looked upon with no small bit of skepticism in come circles, but after the film's Venice Film Festival premiere and subsequent TIFF screenings, word on the street is that it's not only good, it's great. The movie contains a number of original songs written for Gaga and Cooper, including one that takes up quite a bit of the first trailer and has already inspired a family of memes all on its own. This song is "Shallow," and it includes one bit of vocalization from Gaga that's best written phonetically as: "HAAAaaaaaaa-AAAAAAA-aaaaaaaaa-aaaaa-aaaaaahhhh AAAAAAHHHHH aaaaahhhhhhh haaaaaaaaaa-AAAAAAAA-aaaaaaaaaaa-AAAA-AAAAAAAAAAHHH."
Until now, we could only hear part of the song if we rewatched the (incredibly good) trailer -- but today, Lady Gaga herself posted "Shallow" in full to her YouTube account, a day before she'd originally promised. Mother Monster is so good to us.
