  Oh, Pretty Woman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1989, the controversial 2 Live Crew recorded a parody of the Orbison song, using the alternate title "Pretty Woman" for their album Clean as They Wanna Be.
The Crew sampled the distinctive bassline from the Orbison song, but the romantic lyrics were replaced by talk about a hairy woman and her bald-headed friend and their appeal to the singer.
The original Orbison song, "Oh Pretty Woman", was also used for a film called Pretty Woman starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts (1990).

Not much more believable is the song "Oh, Pretty Woman" (1964), in which the great Roy Orbison soaringly describes an improbably successful pickup on the street.

 2 Live Crew
Consequently, the movie producers were required to license the Orbison version of the song, but since titles cannot be copyrighted, the producers would not be liable to either Orbison or 2 Live Crew for the use of the title "Pretty Woman" for the title of the movie.
In looking at 2 Live Crew's use of the "Pretty Woman" song, the Supreme Court successfully looked past the previous fair use decisions which basically stated that any commercial use was presumptively infringement.
Instead of dismissing the Crew's claim on the basis that they had used the appropriated material for commercial gain, the court looked at the other factors of permissible fair use and determined that parody was indeed protected fair use, even though the perpetrators gained financially.

 Pretty Woman
Roy Orbison, one of rock's truly legendary figures, is tied not to any one decade but virtually to the entire lifespan of rock and roll.
His eight top ten hits in the four years between 1960 and 1964 paved the way for making "Oh, Pretty Woman" the biggest selling record of his career.
Then, years later in the early 1990s, Orbison's hit was revitalized when it was used as the theme song for the blockbuster film, Pretty Woman.

 Amazon.com: The All-Time Greatest Hits of Roy Orbison: Music   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Rarely does Orbison allow himself the outright celebration of something like "Mean Woman Blues," more often going for the shades of gray that slip into "Blue Angel" and "Leah." Few could do what he achieves on these singles, and not just because few are gifted with such a voice.
With his three octave range he could be lighthearted as in "Pretty Woman" or tragic as in "Crying," "It's Over," and "Running Scared." His voice literally could give me chills.
Here is a cd, that takes 20 of Roy Orbison's hits that he recored at Monument Masters between 1960 and `1964, and they are all in their orginal recordings, even if they might have been remastered, so you won't be hearing guitar breaks in any them, like Oh, Pretty Woman.

At only 21, Roberts was a fresh talent with sexy girl-next-door looks who showed she could light up the screen with her acting.
With the guidance of veteran sitcom director Garry Marshall (`The Odd Couple', `Happy Days', `Mork and Mindy', `Murphy Brown'), she was transformed from a tall and pretty model type into a delightful romantic figure with an extraordinary sense of comic timing who earned a best actress nomination for her performance.
The new DVD includes a good deal of footage that was left out of the theatrical release, and the commentary by Garry Marshall is rich in interesting trivia about the production.

Inevitably the movie's theme song is Roy Orbison's "Oh Pretty Woman", sounding fresh as ever.
The remainder of the album is a snapshot of up-and-coming acts at the beginning of the 90s, with Go West's massive hit, "King Of Wishful Thinking" and Roxette's chart smash "It Must Have Been Love" setting the agenda for slick, well produced power-pop.
One of the best things about pretty woman is the scene were Richard takes Julia to the Opera, Lauren Woods track "Fallen" is beautiful and sets the right romantic mood.
