Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #106 – “Before I Cry,” from A Star Is Born
106. “Before I Cry,” from A Star Is Born
Star Is Born again. Another one of the Alli songs. The last one, I think. We’re almost past these and will soon be on the real cream of the crop (also notice how few of the 17 songs made this half of the list and how many are gonna be in the top 100). This one starts as a song where you’re like, “Okay, I get it, it’s fine,” and then she hits that chorus, and you’re in a whole other stratosphere. That chorus is the reason this song goes so high. That shit is just great.
