Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #55 – “Look What I Found,” from A Star Is Born
55. “Look What I Found,” from A Star Is Born
Gaga’s vocals are really strong here, and I love the simple piano and snaps intro and the gradual increase of the instrumentation throughout. I also really love how the song is introduced in the movie. It’s just something she’s working on, and then later they have her doing it in the studio, and there’s that bit where she can’t do it properly without actually playing it, and then Cooper goes in there for moral support. It’s a really nice moment for the two of them and the cherry on top is that the song is actually really good. It’s also the perfect bridge song between her writing songs with him and the more ‘pop’ direction her career goes in.
