    Who wrote the songs?

    The movie’s musical journey kicks off with “La Vie en Rose,” which was written by Edith Piaf in 1947.

    Then, there are the Jackson country-rock tunes Jackson Maine sings were actually written by Cooper and son of musical legend Willie Nelson, Lukas Nelson. Nelson’s band, Promise of the Real, also play Jackson’s band in the movie. Beloved Nashville singer/songwriter and guitarist Jason Isbell wrote “Maybe It’s Time,” another Jackson Maine song you will recognize from the trailer.

    Diane Warren—who wrote “If I Could Turn Back Time,” “Unbreak My Heart,” “How Do I Live,” ever heard of them?—wrote Ally’s pop song “Why Did You Do That?” (it’s the one she performs on SNL, with lines like “Why do you look so good in those jeans? Why you come around me with an ass like that?”)

    Gaga, of course, had a hand in many of the tunes. She co-wrote “Alibi,” “Is That Alright?,” “Always Remember Us This Way,” “Music to My Eyes,” “Diggin’ My Grave,” “Heal Me,” “I Don’t Know What Love Is,” “Why Did You Do That,” “Hair Body Face,” “Before I Cry,” and “I’ll Never Love Again”

    As for “Shallow”? A hat tip to Gaga herself, Mark Ronson, Andrew Wyatt, and Anthony Rossomando. Thank you, guys, forever.

    What’s the song from the trailer called?

    Why, that viral stunner is called “Shallow.” It’s a duet between Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. As well as being an electric Gaga performance, it’s the linchpin of their characters’ relationship, and thus the whole movie: After Jackson first sees Ally performing at a drag club he asks

    Why is everyone talking about “Shallow” all the time?

    Um, have you heard that song? It’s delicate country-tinged confessional balled PLUS power-chord rock chorus PLUS a duet between two very famous people PLUS one of them is Lady Gaga. Where do you even live?

    But okay, if you must: even the smaller sections of the song first heard in the trailer went viral. That’s because Ally’s huge “HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AH AH AHHHHHHHHHHHHH” was a volcanic vocal snippet, so stadium-huge that it was almost funny. You can practically smell the Bud Light and feel the surge of a crowd in that tiny bit. Plus, did you know Bradley Cooper could sing?
