A fun mismatch of songs this week. I won’t be going into much (read: any) detail on them since I have my mother here for a visit and we’re about to crack into Rock Band 3 for her first time. She’s been so excited about this for months, it’s actually kind of adorable.
So this week Roy Orbison meets KISS. And I wish I had been in on that meeting.
– Roy Orbison – “Blue Bayou”
– Roy Orbison – “Dream Baby (How Long Must I Dream)”
– Roy Orbison – “Only the Lonely (Know the Way I Feel)” +
– KISS – “Rock and Roll All Nite (Live)” +
– KISS – “Strutter (Live)”
+ = pro-guitar/bass chart available
The Roy Orbison songs are from his 1980s rerecords, as were all the previous Roy Orbison songs. So pretty faithful reproductions. The two KISS songs are, as noted, live, and from their 1975 “Dressed to Kill” tour. As HMXHenry said, “The versions we’re releasing have actually never been officially released on any album, making this an awesome chance to hear two classic KISS tracks from their definitive live tour!”
And there you have it. Time to go watch my mother play the hell out of Bon Jovi.
