Roy Orbison – The Artist
Roy Orbison (1936 – 1988) was an American singer, songwriter, and musician known for his powerful voice, wide vocal range, impassioned singing style, complex song structures, and dark, emotional ballads. The combination led many critics to describe his music as operatic, nicknaming him “the Caruso of Rock” and “the Big O”. While most male rock-and-roll performers in the 1950s and 1960s projected a defiant masculinity, many of Orbison’s songs instead conveyed vulnerability. During performances, he was known for standing still and solitary, and for wearing black clothes, to match his dyed jet-black hair and dark sunglasses, which lent an air of mystery to his persona. In the 1980s, he experienced a resurgence in popularity through the success of several cover versions of his songs, and in 1988, co-founded the Traveling Wilburys, a rock supergroup with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and Jeff Lynne. He died of a heart attack later that year, at the age of 52.
You Got It – The Song
You Got It is a song from Roy Orbison’s twenty-second studio album, Mystery Girl (1989). The song was released in 1989 with “The Only One” as the B-side. The A-side was very popular international and returning Orbison to the Top 10 for the first time in 25 years. It was posthumously released after Orbison’s heart attack on December 6, 1988. Although it is an Orbison solo single, Orbison’s fellow Traveling Wilburys bandmates, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne, co-wrote the song and played instruments on the record.
