Give Lady Gaga a soft-rock ballad and watch her soar. “Hold My Hand” is lifted from the forthcoming Top Gun: Maverick film, and in true Gaga fashion, the rafts come crumbling to the ground. “So cry tonight but don’t you let go of my hand / You can cry every last tear / I won’t leave ’til I understand / Promise me, just hold my hand,” her words light the air on fire. Drums crash and thump, electric guitar pouring out its own musical emotion. It’s as a much a barner-burner as it is a tear-jerker.
