ROY ORBISON Topped US Singles Chart 58 Years Ago With ‘RUNNING SCARED’ – Here’s NICK CAVE’s Raw Rendition…

5 June 2019

Today 58 years ago, on 5 June 1961, the late great Big O better known as ROY ORBISON topped the US Singles Chart with ‘RUNNING SCARED‘. To my ears, his best ever song and his best every vocal performance. NICK CAVE, one of his most fervent fans covered this timeless diamond back in 1986 (the year Cave‘s covers album Kicking Against the Pricks came out). With his baritone voice and darksome timbre he turned ‘Running Scared‘ in
a doomy near-murder ballad. Check it out below…

If you never heard the original than this standout
live version will blow you off your socks…
