О, красива жена*

I was doing a little reading on Roy Orbison recently and came upon this odd episode. While much beloved, Orbison’s career had a lot of ups and downs. At the end of the 70s his US career was all but dead; then a song or two got covered, to some modest success, and he decided to capitalize on the moment. So to get a little buzz going, maybe sell some albums, he hit the road to play some shows.

Sounds like a plan! So off to Bulgaria he went. WHAT?! Who declares they’re big in Sofia?? Apparently, Orbison does, the guy was so mobbed on the streets he couldn’t leave his hotel. And the rest is dimly remembered history.

Oh, Pretty Woman, in Bulgarian
