Re: A Star is Born w/Barbra S and Kris K

I haven't seen the Gaga version yet but I loved the Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson version and thought the sparks flew in that movie between the both of them.  I am anxious to see if it's the same in the Gaga version.  To me no one can top Barbra Streisand's voice but I know Gaga is also good singer also so we'll see.

Re: A Star is Born w/Barbra S and Kris K

I’ve had a crush on Kris Kristofferson since I was a kid. He is an incredibly talented songwriter, which is his true gift. Much like Bob Dylan, he does not have a typical singing voice. I appreciate his artistry even so.
Can’t stand Streisand 😂 or Judy Garland. 😝
To be honest, I don’t like any of the Star is Born movies. Blech. I’ve only liked the male leads, specifically KK and James Mason.

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the Carol Burnett/Glen Campbell version.

I love the Streisand/Kristofferson version. I was a teen growing up around that time, i remember my friend bought the Streisand album. 

 

Kris K. "A Golden Gloves boxer with top grades at Pomona College in California, Kristofferson earned a Rhodes Scholarship to study literature at the University of Oxford in London."

Re: A Star is Born w/Barbra S and Kris K

I have seen the last two versions of A Star Is Born. I loved both of them. Have seen these versions numerous times and purchased both soundtracks. I thought both couples had great chemistry. Kris Kristopherson is a wonderful songwriter but I agree the man can't sing. Bradley Cooper did a decent job singing but I doubt he records any music in the future. In my opinion, both ladies are marvelous singers but not actors. Evergreen is a beautiful love song. The latest soundtrack has several songs I liked much better than Shallow.

I love the latest version with Lady Gaga. We tried to watch the Streisand version (and I love her as a singer), but could not make it through. I found it way too cheesy and dated.
