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…

NICK CAVE and his BAD SEEDS released their eighth LP LET LOVE IN today 25 years ago, on 18 April 1994.. One of their most affecting works ever, where doom and passion go hand in hand. A truly puzzling album that leaves you behind with mixed emotions. Weirdly enough it wasn’t really a bestseller. Only 50.000 copies sold in the UK and 60.000 in the US.

Here are Turn Up The Volume‘s selected highlights…
