Subsequent to last week’s #1 Breakout, Eric Kupper‘s 2019 rework of Judy Garland‘s classic “The Man That Got Away” notch the #41* Hot Shot Debut spot on this week’s edition of the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart.
The original Universal Music-released production was written and created for the 1954 version of the film A Star Is Born and has since enjoyed mainstream success as a classic show tune. The song’s 65 year old longevity made it a natural target for a modern touch-up by Eric Kupper, who has remixed three consecutive #1* Billboard dance charters for the Diana Ross classics “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough 2017”, “I’m Coming Out”/”Upside Down 2018” and “The Boss 2019.” from the same major record company. The revamped recording utilizes all aspects of the original 3-track master recording yet contains additions made by the world-renowned DJ/artist to create a modern day club culture classic!
Concurrent with the remixed effort’s release comes the film detailing the life and hard times of the famed actress/songstress who, toward the end of her career, battled a host of health, management, and finances woes. Watch a trailer for Judy below.

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga‘s real chemistry is on full display in the modern remake of A Star Is Born, debuting in theaters on October 5th. The two play artists who meet and fall in love – Cooper as Jackson Maine, a rock star fighting an alcohol and drug addiction, and Gaga as Ally, a struggling singer.
Gaga and Cooper say they knew they had chemistry from the moment they met. “The second that I saw him, I was like, ‘Have I known you my whole life?'” Gaga told Vogue. “It was an instant connection, instant understanding of one another.” When Cooper first met Gaga, he described his reaction, “She came down the stairs and we went out to her patio and I saw her eyes, and honestly, it clicked and I went, ‘Wow.'”
About five minutes into the film, Garland aka Dorothy in the The Wizard of Oz sings the song after failing to get Aunt Em, Uncle Henry, and the farmhands to listen to her relate an unpleasant incident involving her dog, Toto, and the town spinster, Miss Gulch (Margaret Hamilton).
