Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #36 – “Maybe It’s Time,” from A Star Is Born

 

36. “Maybe It’s Time,” from A Star Is Born

Sure, it’s on the nose and reflects the narrative of the film and the arc of his character. But you know what? That doesn’t make it any worse of a song. It’s a really well-written song and really well-sung by Bradley Cooper. This is a perfect song — it covers character and provides a nice moment in the film as he performs for the performers at the drag club while he waits for Gaga to change. And it allows her to see him perform up close and personal, and see how much soul he puts into his music, which really is what provides their connection more than anything else.
