always seemed an ungainly pop star to me, he looked awkward, with super thick chunky monkey glasses and really
not someone you would have hanging as a poster on your bedroom wall when you're 14, if you know what i mean
. His voice on the other hand was pure angelic, honest & openly heartfelt, you only have to listen to this song [Crying] to see what i mean. From my time period I was introduced to this song by Don McLean
and to be blunt, I enjoyed this more than the original by Orbison, but as all things in life, time let me enjoy the original more .. later in years. I still rate McLeans version, but in reality ... you cannot beat the feeling, quiver and pitch Roy Orbison had for his own song. Sorry Don ~ crowbarredRoy Orbison
