Pretty Woman

I don’t believe you
You mock the truth
No one could look as good as you

A lot of prettiness in the air today. I don’t know why I’m on a roll. Expect a fourth(!) post very soon….
I like googling lyrics. I always thought he said “you’re NOT the truth”.

Pretty woman walkin’ down the street
Pretty woman, the kind I like to meet
Pretty woman, I don’t believe you
You mock the truth
No one could look as good as you

Pretty woman, won’t you pardon me
Pretty woman, I couldn’t help but see
Pretty woman, and you look lovely as can be
Are you lonely just like me

Pretty woman, stop a while
Pretty woman, talk a while
Pretty woman, give your smile to me
Pretty woman, yeah, yeah, yeah
Pretty woman, look my way
Pretty woman, say you’ll stay with me

Cause I need you
I’ll treat you right
Come to me baby
Be mine tonight

Pretty woman, don’t walk on by
Pretty woman, don’t make me cry
Pretty woman, don’t walk away

If that’s the way it must be, OK
I guess I’ll go on home, it’s late
There’ll be tomorrow night
But wait, what do I see?
Is she walking back to me?
Yeah, she’s walking back to me
Pretty woman.

Anyway, you know the track, you know the movie, but do you know anything about Roy Orbison? Apart from the fact that he looks like an old lesbian? more specifically, KD Lang? Or that his dark glasses always seem to be falling off his face?… I apologise in advance if my humour seems a bit derogatory. I know a tread a very thin line…

Just in case, you didn’t know, he was a Traveling Wilbury alongside Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty!

And he’s got at least 3 really amazing songs: In Dreams (remember Blue Vevet?) You Got It and I Drove All Night

Remember that Video? It’s Jason Priestley / Brandon on 90210!

Anyway, lets go back to Pretty Woman. Here’s a fantastic Bollywood version with Shahrukh Khan

And the very controversial 2 Live Crew version. It was an important lawsuit that went all the way to the supreme court and changed the doctrine regarding samples, parodies and fair use…
