After graduating from Wink High Schoolhe enrolled at North Texas State College in Dentonplanning to study geology so that he could secure work in the oil fields if music did not pay.
While at North Texas State College, Roy heard a song called "Ooby Dooby", composed by Dick Penner and Wade Moore in mere minutes atop a fraternity house at the college, and after his first year of college, he returned to Wink with "Ooby Dooby" in hand and continued performing with the Wink Westerners. As two members of the band quit, one to attend school elsewhere and one to join the Navy, two new members were added to the group,  who won a talent contest and obtained their own television show on KMID-TV in Midland, Texas.
While living in Odessa, Orbison saw a performance by Elvis Presleywho was only a year older and a rising star.
Orbison telephoned Phillips and during their conversation was curtly told, "Johnny Cash doesn't run my record company! Phillips was impressed with the song, after the local record store owner Poppa Holifield played it for him over the telephone, and offered the Teen Kings a contract in Sun Records and Acuff-Rose[ edit ] Main article: The song was released on Sun in May Much influenced by Elvis Presley, Orbison performed frenetically, doing "everything we could to get applause because we had only one hit record".
The band ultimately split over disputed writing credits and royalties, but Orbison stayed in Memphis and asked his year-old girlfriend, Claudette Frady, to join him there. In the studio, Orbison concentrated on the mechanics of recording. Phillips remembered being much more impressed with Orbison's mastery of the guitar than with his voice. The first, and perhaps only, royalties Orbison earned from Sun Records enabled him to make a down payment on his own Cadillac.
Increasingly frustrated at Sun, he gradually stopped recording. He toured music circuits around Texas and then quit performing for seven months in  after touring with Patsy Cline Eddie Cochranand Gene Vincent.
For a brief period in the late s, Orbison made his living at Acuff-Rosea songwriting firm concentrating mainly on country music. After spending an entire day writing a song, he would make several demonstration tapes at a time and send them to Wesley Rosewho would try to find musical acts to record them.
Orbison attempted to sell to RCA Victor his recordings of songs by other writers, working with and being in awe of Chet Atkinswho had played guitar with Presley. One song he tried was "Seems to Me", by Boudleaux Bryant. Bryant's impression of Orbison was of "a timid, shy kid who seemed to be rather befuddled by the whole music scene.
I remember the way he sang then—softly, prettily but almost bashfully, as if someone might be disturbed by his efforts and reprimand him. The songwriter Joe Melsonan acquaintance of Orbison's, tapped on his car window one day in Texas inand the two decided to try to write some songs together.
Monument Records[ edit ] Early singles[ edit ] Orbison was one of the first recording artists to popularize the " Nashville sound ", doing so with a group of session musicians known as the A-Team: With this combination, he recorded three new songs, the most notable of which was "Uptown", written with Joe Melson.
His initial success came just as the '50s rock-and-roll era was winding down. Starting inthe charts in the United States came to be dominated by teen idols, novelty acts, and Motown girl groups. According to Orbison, the subsequent songs he wrote with Melson during this period were constructed with his voice in mind, specifically to showcase its range and power.

He told Rolling Stone in"I liked the sound of [my voice]. I liked making it sing, making the voice ring, and I just kept doing it. And I think that somewhere between the time of "Ooby Dooby" and "Only the Lonely", it kind of turned into a good voice.
Problems playing this file? Orbison encountered difficulty when he found himself unable to hit the song's highest note without his voice breaking. He was backed by an orchestra in the studio and Porter told him he would have to sing louder than his accompaniment because the orchestra was unable to be softer than his voice.
Orbison was unhappy with the first two takes. In the third, however, he abandoned the idea of using falsetto and sang the final high 'A' naturally, so astonishing everyone present that the accompanying musicians stopped playing. Fred Foster later recalled, "He did it, and everybody looked around in amazement. Nobody had heard anything like it before. The composition of Orbison's following hits reflected "Running Scared": Orbison's producer would later form the Candymen quintet, which was Orbison's backing band from towhile releasing a few singles and two albums of their own.
Also inhe charted with "The Crowd", "Leah", and "Workin' for the Man", which he wrote about working one summer in the oil fields near Wink. I didn't have a manager who told me to dress or how to present myself or anything, but the image developed of a man of mystery and a quiet man in black somewhat of a recluse, although I never was, really.
He had no publicist in the early s, therefore he had little presence in fan magazines, and his single sleeves did not feature his picture. Life called him an "anonymous celebrity". His biographers suggest that although he had a good sense of humor and was never morose, Orbison was very shy and suffered from severe stage fright ; wearing sunglasses helped him hide somewhat from the attention.
The ever-present sunglasses led some people to assume that the stationary performer was blind. As "In Dreams" was released in AprilOrbison was asked to replace the guitarist Duane Eddy on a tour of the UK in top billing with the Beatleswhose popularity was on the rise. When he arrived in Britain, however, he saw the amount of advertising devoted to the quartet and realized he was no longer the main draw. He had never heard of them, and annoyed, asked rhetorically, "What's a Beatle, anyway?
Known for having raucous shows expressing an extraordinary amount of energy, Lennon, Paul McCartneyGeorge Harrisonand Ringo Starr stood dumbfounded backstage as Orbison performed completely still and simply sang through 14 encores. He was just standing there, not moving or anything.
Touring in took a toll on Orbison's personal life. He regularly performed dressed all in black, wearing a long, black, knee-length coat. This outfit stood in contrast to the costumes worn by most of the major country acts in his day - rhinestone suits and cowboy boots. InCash wrote the song " Man in Black " to help explain his dress code: We're doing mighty fine I do suppose In our streak of lightning cars and fancy clothes But just so we're reminded of the ones who are held back Up front there ought to be a man in black.
Cash performing in BremenWest Germany, in September He wore 'black' on behalf of the poor and hungryon behalf of "the prisoner who has long paid for his crime," and on behalf of those who have been betrayed by age or drugs.
Apart from the Vietnam War being over, I don't see much reason to change my position The old are still neglected, the poor are still poor, the young are still dying before their time, and we're not making many moves to make things right. There's still plenty of darkness to carry off. He wore other colors on stage early in his career, but he claimed to like wearing black both on and off stage.
He stated that political reasons aside, he simply liked black as his on-stage color. He made commercials for Amoco and STPan unpopular enterprise at the time of the s energy crisis. Inhe made commercials for Lionel Trainsfor which he also wrote the music.

Quinn, Medicine Woman in recurring roles. He was closest to Jimmy Carterwith whom he became close friends and who was a distant cousin of his wife, June.
Cash wrote that the reasons for denying Nixon's song choices were not knowing them and having fairly short notice to rehearse them, rather than any political reason. During that period, Cash appeared in a number of television films. Inhe starred in The Pride of Jesse Hallamwinning fine reviews for a film that called attention to adult illiteracy.
In the same year, Cash appeared as a "very special guest star" in an episode of the Muppet Show. Inhe appeared as a heroic sheriff in Murder in Coweta Countybased on a real-life Georgia murder case, which co-starred Andy Griffith as his nemesis and featured June Carter in a small but important role.
Cash had tried for years to make the film, for which he won acclaim. Cash relapsed into addiction after being administered painkillers for a serious abdominal injury in caused by an unusual incident in which he was kicked and wounded by an ostrich he kept on his farm. Doctors recommended preventive heart surgery, and Cash underwent double bypass surgery in the same hospital.
Both recovered, although Cash refused to use any prescription painkillers, fearing a relapse into dependency.

Cash later claimed that during his operation, he had what is called a " near-death experience ". Cash's recording career and his general relationship with the Nashville establishment were at an all-time low in the s.
He realized that his record label of nearly 30 years, Columbia, was growing indifferent to him and was not properly marketing him he was "invisible" during that time, as he said in his autobiography. InCash released a self-parody recording titled "Chicken in Black" about Cash's brain being transplanted into a chicken and Cash receiving a bank robber's brain in return. Biographer Robert Hilburn, in the published Johnny Cash: The Life, disputes the claim made that Cash chose to record an intentionally poor song in protest of Columbia's treatment of him.
On the contrary, Hilburn writes, it was Columbia that presented Cash with the song, which Cash — who had previously scored major chart hits with comedic material such as "A Boy Named Sue" and "One Piece at a Time" — accepted enthusiastically, performing the song live on stage and filming a comedic music video in which he dresses up in a superhero-like bank-robber costume.
According to Hilburn, Cash's enthusiasm for the song waned after Waylon Jennings told Cash he looked "like a buffoon" in the music video which was showcased during Cash's Christmas TV specialand Cash subsequently demanded that Columbia withdraw the music video from broadcast and recall the single from stores—interrupting its bona fide chart success—and termed the venture "a fiasco.
After more unsuccessful recordings were released in —85, Cash left Columbia at least as a solo artist; he continued to record for Columbia on nonsolo projects until as late asrecording a duets album with Waylon Jennings and two albums as a member of The Highwaymen. InCash returned to Sun Studios in Memphis to team up with Roy OrbisonJerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins to create the album Class of '55 ; according to Hilburn, Columbia still had Cash under contract at the time, so special arrangements had to be made to allow him to participate.
American Recordings[ edit ] Johnny Cash sings a duet with a Navy lieutenant around After Columbia Records dropped Cash from his recording contract, he had a short and unsuccessful stint with Mercury Records from to During this time, he recorded an album of new versions of some of his best-known Sun and Columbia hits, as well as Water from the Wells of Homea duets album that paired him with, among others, his children Rosanne Cash and John Carter Cashas well as Paul McCartney.
A one-off Christmas album recorded for Delta Records followed his Mercury contract. His career was rejuvenated in the s, leading to popularity with an audience which was not traditionally considered interested in country music. Cash was enthusiastic about the project, telling Langford that it was a "morale booster"; Roseanne Cash later said "he felt a real connection with those musicians and very validated It was very good for him: He absolutely understood what they were tapping into, and loved it".
The album attracted press attention on both sides of the Atlantic. Inhe sang "The Wanderer" on U2 's album Zooropa which was the closing track. According to Rolling Stone writer Adam Gold, "The Wanderer" — written for Cash by Bono, "defies both the U2 and Cash canons, combining rhythmic and textural elements of Nineties synth-pop with a Countrypolitan lament fit for the closing credits of a Seventies western. The album had a great deal of critical and commercial success, winning a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album.
Cash wrote that his reception at the Glastonbury Festival was one of the highlights of his career. This was the beginning of a decade of music industry accolades and commercial success.
On the same album, he performed the Bob Dylan favorite " Forever Young. The album was produced by Rick Rubin with Sylvia Massy engineering and mixing. Believing he did not explain enough of himself in his autobiography Man in Black, he wrote Cash: The Autobiography in According to biographer Robert Hilburn, the disease was originally misdiagnosed as Parkinson's diseaseand Cash even announced to his audience that he had Parkinson's after nearly collapsing on stage in Flint, Michiganon October 25, A life for a life And a truth for a thruth.

There were songs before there was radio Of love that stays and love that goes. They were writing melancholy tunes And tearful words that rhyme Before my time.

Whoever is unjust let him be unjust still. Whoever is righteous let him be righteous still. Whoever is filthy let him be filthy still. Listen to the words long written down, When the man comes around.
Der Titel hat im ganz offenbar sehr am Herzen gelegen. Und es geht auch um den Verlust geliebter Menschen. Wir kennen alle diese wunderbaren Zeilen: Like a bridge over troubled water I will ease your mind. And the first time ever I lay with you I felt your heart so close to mine.
And I know our joy would fill the earth, And last till the end of time, my love. The first time ever I saw your face.
It's about how Elvis was her man and her mentor and how often that happens in love relationships; how everybody's heart is like a god in some way, and that's not a very balanced view of someone, is it?
