Dave Marsh recounts Roy Orbison’s journey and success as a songwriter and vocalist. Big hits such as “Only the Lonely”, “Crying”, and “Sweet Dreams” have shaped Orbison’s popular and influential songwriting and singing style.
Roy Orbison worked with his longtime producer, Fred Foster, with these renowned hits. Fred Foster particularly comments on the storyline of “Only the Lonely” and why “Sweet Dreams” was written and produced.
Bruce Springsteen comments on Orbison’s natural ability to write lyrical and soul touching ballads. Springsteen declares that “Crying” is a sophisticated work that “holds an adult’s emotion, but still has an operatic quality of young people’s emotions.”
