Roy Orbison Toasts Rick Lazio: "It's Over"



Roy Orbison released "It's Over" in 1963, the year after the Cuban missile crisis.  America was robust; the gold standard was still in effect internationally, and I am told that JFK was considering bringing it back domestically as well.  Jimmy Hoffa was making money for the Teamsters and the Kennedys were after him.  Orbison died 25 years later, in 1988, the year he made a comeback with the Traveling Wilburys. 

Bless Rick Lazio's heart for saying that he would drop out of the race. "It's Over" is a toast to him. In fact I'll make it two toasts with "Blue Bayou":
