Roy Orbison - Breakin' Up Is Breakin' My Heart (1966)
 
02:14
One of Roy's best uptempo recordings because the feel of the ballads is in the song. The beat is uptempo, but the emotion is not, and as such, it's very moving even though it's a fast song. Charted at #31 on Billboard Hot 100 in February 1966, #22 on UK Singles chart, #19 in Australia and #2 in Canada. Original Billboard review: "The composer-performer has an exciting original rhythm number loaded with dance appeal that will spiral up the chart to replace his first MGM hit, "Crawling Back"." My note: "Ride Away" was actually Roy's first MGM hit, "Crawling Back" was the second. Written by Roy Orbison & Bill Dees. B-side is "Wait".

One of Roy's most beautiful recordings. You have to be truly in love to understand. Charted at #46 on Billboard Hot 100 in December 1965, #19 on UK Singles chart, #14 in Australia and #2 in Canada. Original Billboard review: "For his second MGM release and follow-up to "Ride Away", this compelling ballad builds into a big production climax aimed at rapid chart action."

Roy Orbison - The Actress (1962)
 
02:42
One of my favorite Orbison recordings, and one of his best that not enough know about. B-side of "Dream Baby", but I would have made it the A-side. "The Actress" charted locally in the Top 40 in a variety of US and Canadian cities during February and March 1962, and Top 10 in some areas, but it was overshadowed by the airplay garnered by "Dream Baby" and didn't make the national Billboard charts. Written by Roy Orbison and Joe Melson.
