Roy Orbison’s Pretty Woman From Pretty Woman

  • Pin it

It’s one of those movies that you have to have seen. Impossible to overlook, impossible to forget, Pretty Woman is a reference. Julia Roberts and Richard Gere made a legend with that romantic movie and I think everyone (and their dog) has seen it at least once.

Roy Orbison’s song, Pretty Woman, is as joyful and easy as the movie. So today I come before you saying “Yes, I liked Pretty Woman!”. I enjoyed that movie and it’s part of a movie shelf some label as superficial and commercial. I label as movie tout court. Because it’s entertainment and it’s supposed to be entertaining. And lovely. And joyful! Ooooohh-oooooooh, pretty woman! (right after the break there’s a clip with Roy Orbison singing Pretty Woman live)

This cheers me up! Thanks Kpriss!

I went to see the movie with my best girlfriend and we didn’t found it great but we loved it as a modern fairy-tale. After the movie when out for drinks we felt like “pretty women” and were so flirtatious! Sweet memories….

And I love the Big ‘O’! He’s classic rock. And oh my all that perfomers Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Bruce Springfield and who else more but guitar-god T-Bone Burnett is on it too!
Girl, you made my day. When all is dark or sad great music, no matter what kind, heals a lot….

Love Roy Orbison, but not the film.
Hope that everyone is simply dandy!
