“Is That Alright?” by Lady Gaga
“Is That Alright?” from the album A Star is Born, released in 2018
Lady Gaga is a force. Whether she is singing an upbeat dance number, a big band tribute, a John Lennon cover, or a soothing love song, she hits all the notes in all the right ways.
In “Is That Alright?”, she explores the concept of love not as a fiery hot mess that will eventually burn out (“Bad Romance”) but a warm comfort that lasts forever. It is beautiful and sweet and, frankly, a perfect love song.
I mean, how can you argue with these lyrics?
It felt like summer
When I kissed you in the rain
And I know your story
But tell me again
Happy Valentine’s Day.
