Shallow Heroes

A-star-is-born_ZKS5C0It's impossible for today's recording artists to not sound slightly like those that have gone before them. I mean, there are only so many chords and so many variations. To be sure, there are the stone cold steals...but most are merely vaguely influenced.

"Shallow," the break-out (and Golden Globes winning) song from the 2018 version of A Star is Born, is one of the latter. The build is eerily reminiscent of  House of Heroes' "So Far Away." Not the soaring chorus. Both tracks have their own unique transcendent moments...which is why I love them both. I just hear the build on this Music Friday.

This is by no means calling 'foul." Just a tip of the hat to House of Heroes for possibly inspiring a sensational piece of a great track from Gaga, et al.
