THROWBACK THURSDAY: ROY ORBISON – ‘YOU GOT IT’ (LIVE)

What better way to ease into the last few hours of your working day by listening to a little bit of Roy Orbison? I truly believe, with all my heart, that if we humans could hear the angels sing, they would all sound like Roy Orbison. They man had the voice of a saint! In fact the tone he hits at 02:09 gives me the shivers. It’s a beautiful thing! The song itself never really received the acclaim it deserved upon its release in 1989, reaching number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and thus returning Orbison to the Top 10 for the first time in 25 years. Incidentally the song was released after Orbison’s death in December 1988 and is considered by many, including myself, to be his best work. Plugin those earphones, turn this one up and enjoy it with me. RIP

Forgive the fact that he is clearly lip-syncing and enjoy the voice.

You stay classy,
