City of Stars Lyrics Duet ft. Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone La La Land

City of Stars Lyrics Duet ft. Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone La La Land. Marius de Vries, the movie's music executive and soundtrack maker, revealed to The Independent, "This was the primary verse that Pasek and Paul gave us, and probably the most punctual melody to begin to feel full fledged. Since we had it fully operational for some time, we took it through numerous stages - two part harmony, female lead, male lead… ." 

Justin Hurwitz, the author of this melody, clarified, "...it sort of goes to and fro between cadencing in major and cadencing in minor, since I believe that is somewhat what the tune is about. You have these incredible minutes and afterward you have these less extraordinary minutes throughout everyday life and in Los Angeles and we witness it in the story." 

This tune seems multiple times in the film: first, it is sung solo by Ryan Gosling's character; second, it is a two part harmony with him and Emma Stone's character; third, the tune is murmured by her toward the end. 

"City Of Stars" was performed by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling live on set, without lip-adjusting to pre-recorded vocals. Since Gosling can't whistle, Justin Hurwitz whistled during this tune.

City of Stars Lyrics Duet ft. Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone La La Land


City of stars
Are you shining just for me?

City of stars
There's so much that I can't see
Who knows?

I felt it from the first embrace I shared with you
That now our dreams
They've finally come true

City of stars
Just one thing everybody wants
There in the bars
And through the smokescreen of the crowded restaurants

It's love
Yes, all we're looking for is love from someone else
A rush
A glance
A touch
A dance

A look in somebody's eyes
To light up the skies
To open the world and send it reeling

A voice that says, "I'll be here"
And "you'll be alright"

I don't care if I know
Just where I will go

'Cause all that I need is this crazy feeling
A rat-tat-tat on my heart
Think I want it to stay
City of stars
Are you shining just for me?

City of stars
You never shined so brightly...
