Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper's 'A Star Is Born' Soundtrack Debuts at No. 1

One of the positives of "A Star is Born" is, no doubt, the top-notch soundtrack and the fact that songs with actual instrumentation (good ol' bass, drum, piano and guitar) are back at the top of the Billboard charts since God knows how long.
It is no surprise then that Gaga-mania mixed with word of mouth for the film has made the film's soundtrack sell more than 231,000 copies in the week ending Oct. 11, according to Nielsen Music -- according to Billboard that's "the biggest week for a soundtrack in more than three-and-a-half years. Of Star’s overall starting sum, 162,000 were in album sales."
