"Oh Pretty Woman"

OK, more 60's: This '64 Orbison/Dees classic was inspired by Roy's wife Claudette. Trademark guitar work by Wayne Moss. Spent 3 wks. at #1. Posthumous Grammy in '91 for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance on HBO's "Roy Orbison & Friends". Grammy Hall of Fame in '99. #222 on Rolling Stone's Best Song of All-Time. Killer instrumental cover by The Ventures on "Knock Me Out".

Yesterday's answer: "At Seventeen" by Janis Ian. I saw her in '76 at the Academy Of Music in Philly (Leon Redbone opened for her). AMAZING!
