When it comes to commonly used English-language exclamations, "Ah" is sort of like a jack of all trades. This is because it can be used appropriately to express a whole range of emotions and feelings. From surprise — "Ah! You scared me!" — to excitement — "Ah, that's great!" — to apprehension — "Ah, are you sure about that?" — to realization — "Ah, I've got it!" — to all sorts of other situations in between, "Ah" makes for the perfect opening to a sentence that expresses universal feelings.
What's perhaps most interesting about "Ah" is that it's practically universal across all Indo-European languages: No matter if it's Old English or Old French, this emotionally charged exclamation translates across the board. It would also make sense to see "Ah" in combination with something else, such as "Aha," depending on the situation. Its many different definitions gives way to just as many uses across the board.
Now, for the more musically inclined, "Ah" could also be used to express a pause or a space in a song or composition. This is obviously a less common usage than the ones listed above, but it's still worth considering nonetheless.
