Roy Orbison

From "Roy Orbison and Friends, A Black and White Night"



I am listening to this live album because I heard this version of Claudette in a compilation album but strangely wiki says it was cut from the original broadcast for time.

Roy Orbison sounds very Lynchian to me. I knew about David Lynch before I knew about Roy Orbison.

In "Blue Velvet"



Wiki says: one film in which Orbison refused to allow his music was Blue Velvet. Director David Lynch asked to use "In Dreams" and Orbison turned him down. Lynch used it anyway.



There is no band...

Running Scared



I read somewhere Bruce Springsteen said he used to listen to this song in his room with the lights off and it was scary.

Nice one.

Roy wrote this for his first wife, Claudette Frady. The Everly Brothers picked up on it (wiki says they bought the song) and it appeared on the B-side of their huge 1958 hit 'All I Have To Do Is Dream' (topped the UK charts for 8 or 9 weeks). We had the London American 78 - which was seldom off the Dansette Junior. Here's one of them lovely old 78s for ya:



I saw The Big 'O' once in the mid 1960s. I did have tickets to see him earlier, on tour with some band from Liverpool in early 1963. The girl I was taking to the gig dropped me for some reason, so I flogged the tix. Never did see the Beatles.

At the Johnny Cash show in 1969. Crying:





With Johnny Cash. Oh, Pretty Woman:



I once kissed a boy who made that 1:07 sound Laughing and now every time I hear Roy Orbison doing it in Mean Woman Blues I remember it.

That's a BIG cat sound cat Very Happy

Here's one I'd never heard before today (I've known and loved the Elvis version since 1957 - still have the HMV 78) - Roy's first record released in 1956:



EDIT: Can't go without listening to the Eagles' 1954 R&B original:



and Elvis's 1955 cover:



cheers it doesn't get better than this!

I downloaded the black and white night dvd and I'm hypnotized by Springsteen's spasmodic movements and facial expressions



3:00 is funny

There's something visually attractive and repulsive at the same time all through the concert

I didn't know "Go Go Go (Down the Line)" is a Roy Orbison's song:




I thought it was Buddy Holly's




Now I'm gonna beat Felix to say... it was the B-side to "Ooby Dooby" cat

It's so easy, Isa! Very Happy study Buddy & Bob (Montgomery) wrote and recorded 'Down The Line' in 1955. Roy wrote and recorded 'Go Go Go (Down The Line)' in 1956. I don't think Roy heard the Buddy & Bob song. See? Simples (meerkat emoticon required) cat Very Happy

My confusion was due to that I read Buddy Holly covered Roy Orbison's "Go Go Go (Down the line)" and then I inmediately thought the song "Down the line" I had heard by Buddy Holly was that one.

I like better Buddy Holly's song

The thing you have to understand is the Orbison GO GO GO is the B-side to OOBENS-DOOBENS, yet Breathless is the B-side to the Lee Lewis GO GO GO, while CRY CRY CRY is the B-side to HEY PORTER! by John Cash and His Tennessee Two.

Oobie-Doobie was covered by John Fogerty along with his 3 lame sidemen back in times long past.  

Covering Roy Orbison was considered retro at the time, which was considered cool at the time, and I think maybe still is.

re: ST8, Brannon Braga thought if they were going to choose a party-time Sun Record Company bopper for Zefrem Cochrane's booze hut, well Braga thought they could've chosen a better one than OOBENS-DOOBENS. Mr. Orberson didn't much like the number either

Definitely could do better; OOBIE-DOOBIE has a cornie lyric, which would be OK if it was cornie in a good way, but it ain't that good, if truth be told. geek

Also, it's so generic.

Maybe the thinking was that something generic would be most representative--but why not "Blue Sued Shoes" then?  More interesting, IMO.
