Coming in at # 9 on my favorite songs from 1982 series is Oh, pretty woman, by Van Halen, it came in at # 12 on the Billboard hot 100 and, # 1 on the Mainstream rock chart, pretty woman was also of course originally recorded by Roy Orbison. Van Halen did well with it though. Check out a sample of the lyrics below. I am sure you will know them well, there is also a famous movie Pretty Woman, starring Julia Roberts. Whoo! pretty woman, walking down the street. Pretty woman the kind I'd like to meet. Pretty woman I don't believe you, it must be true. No one can look as good as you. Mercy pretty woman, won't you pardon me? Pretty woman I couldn't help but see. Pretty woman oh you look lovely as you can be. Are you lonely just like me? Some information verified at Wikipedia. Photo is from Wikipedia, it's Van Halen.

I love that movie to this day and I certainly love that song..not another one like it. Roy Orbison is the only one who could sing it.

Good to see another fan and, I agree Roy Orbison's was the best, that's why Van Halen's version is only at # 9.

This is one super song and it sure fits the movie. I need to watch it again some day. I just heard "Pretty Woman" on the oldies station earlier today.

The funny thing is that with the rise of rap and hip hop music being crammed down my throat, I am starting to like the music of Van Halen like "Jump", "Pretty Woman" and "Panama" among others.

This movie is very popular because of its movie. I think Pretty Woman is a very classical love movie. I still remember at that time this song was played everywhere here.
