While the Lauper version was RELEASED first, our "true" first, i.e. first recording, is currently under discussion. The Orbison version existed as a DEMO recorded in 1987. After failing to gain the interest of record companies in Orbison, the demo was played for Lauper who then recorded it in 1988. After Orbison's death in December 1988, his demo was then engineered into a finished version and released. The question for us is: can a demo be considered a first recording?
