#OnThisDay - Roy Orbison

Mag_RoyOrbison_inpost#OnThisDay back in 1964, Roy Orbison was at No.1 on the UK singles chart with 'Oh Pretty Woman', his third UK No.1.

FunFact: The title was inspired by Orbison's wife Claudette interrupting a conversation to announce she was going out; when Orbison asked if she was okay for cash, his co-writer Bill Dees interjected: "A pretty woman never needs any money."
