Song of the Day: Roy Orbison – “California Blue”



Saturday marked the birthday of the late, great Roy Orbison, who was born in 1936. Orbison left us way too early as he suffered a heart attack at age 52 in December of 1988, just when he was in the middle of a career revival. This gem, which was co-written by Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne and also featured Petty and Lynne on backing vocals and guitar, was part of Orbison’s final album Mystery Girl.
