Orbison, Roy - 1963 Blue Bayou
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Just now you called it "the dream" — that's always been a prevalent image in your songs.
Mm-hmm. Without the word dream, or the concept dream, and without the word blue and the emotions, I would have been really limited in the things I've written and performed [laughs].
If you wrote your own history, could you sum yourself up in a paragraph?
Hmmm ... probably not. I might be able to do it in song. I've never done a song to encompass all that, but maybe in pieces of the songs. Parts of "Crying," parts of "Pretty Woman," too, and "Running Scared." ...Pieces of my songs would tell the story.
