What’s an Ooby Dooby?

Six Roy Orbison songs hit Rock Band last week and I got three of them, Oh Pretty Woman, You Got It, and Ooby Dooby. Fun fact: Ooby Dooby was featured prominently in Star Trek: First Contact, and was the first human song the Vulcans heard.

Some associated news have been found on the net too. GameDaily has a cool interview with Orbison’s widow about the games and music. She has a very positive attitude towards the merging. Digital Game Developer has some really interesting information on the technical process of taking master tracks and making the song playable. The Orbison Estate actually took the opportunity to remix the song just for Rock Band, making the guitar sound more modern.
