Roy Orbison Is The BOMB Bitches!

Growing up I personally had more of a love for Roy Orbison than his contemporary Elvis. Gotta be all those high notes that be givin' me the 'vapors'. Roy just own's this song. I have heard many people do their versions but if you can't hit that great high note at the end it's really not worth the effort is it? One of the truly great songs of the rock era. This video for it gets me everytime. Jennifer Connelly and Jason Priestly? Are you kidding me? How frickin' great is that? We all just want to be loved baby - even if we gotta drive all night.

I like his music, but the man himself gave me nightmares when I was little. He just looked like the walking dead.

He looked like Doc Octopus from the Spidey comic.

It all makes sense now.

Roy was, is, and will always be the Bomb. Priestly, on the other hand, looks as if he's searching for a James Dean look-a-like pageant.

first became aware of mr orbison from david lynch's blue velvet, wherein "in dreams" was very prominently featured...and i was hooked. followed him for the next several years, and was able to see him perform in concert before he passed away (so glad).

fav track changes from time to time, but i think i'll always appreciate "in dreams" the most.
