  4. Check the composer credit on "Pretty Woman". It's "Orbinson", not Orbison. Only on copies of "Oh Pretty Woman" will you find "Orbison".

  5. Now being only 19 I wasn't familiar with Roy Orbison, although I had heard the classics 'Oh, Pretty Woman' and 'Crying' on the radio growing up. However after watching a documentary about Orbison, showing his greatest hits live, I definitely had to buy this. His voice is absolutely sensational - /5(22).
  6. Roy Orbison has done many songs, but this album contains the true best. "Pretty Woman"--Roy's signature song has a beat that you'll never forget! The story of Roy meeting a pretty woman and asking her over has the power to make you (or at least ME) invison a simmilar scene in my head with the music buzzing in the background/5(6).
  7. Oh Pretty Woman I guess a Roy Orbison hit cd, isn't a hit cd with out Only the Lonely and Oh Pretty Woman. These are also the songs that he recored at Moment Records, but how about some of his other hits that was recored there, like Oobby Dooby, and Go, Go, Go, Down the Line.
  8. Although he shared the same rockabilly roots as Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison went on to pioneer an entirely different brand of country/pop-based rock & roll in the early '60s. What he lacked in charisma and photogenic looks, Orbison made up for in spades with his quavering operatic voice and melodramatic narratives of unrequited love and yearning.
