Morning Song – Ooby Dooby

November 16, 2016

If “Ooby Dooby” sounds like it was written in a matter of minutes by a couple of frat brothers drinking a six-pack on the roof of their frat house…well, that’s because it pretty much was.

Roy Orbison took it onto the pop charts in 1956. This video is from 1987 when an all-star lineup of musicians/Orbison fans helped Roy revive his career, beginning with this concert at the Cocoanut Grove nightclub in Los Angeles. My favorite part is all the smiles—performers like Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, and Jackson Browne look delighted just to be on stage with their one of their childhood heroes.
