Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #77 – “Out of Time,” from A Star Is Born


77. “Out of Time,” from A Star Is Born

This is the first of twelve Star Is Born songs left on this list, so you’re gonna get one of these about every five or so songs, so be prepared for that. That’s how good they all are. This one’s purely instrumental, but that doesn’t mean anything. It’s an original song for a movie. Bradley Cooper performs it. And in a way, the way he plays his guitar, which almost feels like an improvisation the way he plays it within the scene, those are the lyrics. That’s him getting that primal energy inside himself out on the stage. Everything he’s feeling, all the pain and anger, it all comes out through the guitar. And that’s just as good as lyrics to me.
