REVIEWS

****
gut
***
Roy Orbisons - Pretty Woman im Van-Halen-Stil.
Nicht mehr, nicht weniger.

(Auf dem 82er Album 'Diver Down')
***
Tja, da hat man's nachgespielt, und hinterher weiss man gar nicht, warum eigentlich.
***
▓ Mislukte cover van "Roy Orbison's" plaat in februari 1982 door de hardrockformatie "Van Halen" !!! Ach ja, iedereen brandt zijn vingers weleens !!! (NL Top 40: 3 wk / # 33) !!!
*****
COOOOOL..
****
Der Charme des Originals geht schon beim Einstieg flöten. Deutlich zwei Noten unter dem Niveau des schönen Originals. Auch stimmlich eine Dimension hinter Roy Orbison.
******
Starke Coverversion. Wenn ich mich recht erinnere, kam der Song als Hintergrundmusik in diesem Film aus den 80er Jahren vor, in dem zwei Jugendliche sich eine Traumfrau zusammenbasteln und diese im Einkaufszentrum die Rolltreppe runter geht.
***
Das muss doch nicht sein, passt überhaupt nicht zu dieser Band.
Hätte David auf eine seiner soloalben packen können. He's just a gigolo.
***
...weniger...
*
Dit geeft precies aan hoe goedkoop de meeste (hard) rock nummers zijn. wat een bagger weer.
**
Schwach
****
Hier beweisen sie zumindest mal Mut zum Risiko (und das Video
dazu ist jetzt auch nicht ganz unwitzig, wenn auch ganz schön
trashig geraten). Reine Geschmacksache, diese Version,
würde ich mal sagen....

4 +
**
Rockfassung des Roy Orbison-Klassikers, welche nicht hätte sein müssen, abgerundete 2.5…

#12 in den Billboard Hot 100 1982…
**
Schwache Nummer! *2+
****
leicht gewöhnungsbedürftig, knappe 4*

CDN: #5, 1982
USA: #12, 1982
