Dave Marsh’s continues to narrate Roy Orbison’s professional and personal life from the mid 60’s to the 80’s.  Following the success of Pretty Woman was a chain of tragic events of Orbison’s personal life.  He continued to made music through the 60s and 70s, but a major comeback began in the mid-1980s when David Lynch used “In Dreams” for his film, Wild at Heart.  Roy discusses how that happened, and we also hear how that was followed by the Traveling Wilburys and posthumus album Mystery Girl.

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.”
