Happy 70th birthday, Buddy Holly
It's odd, isn't it, that someone who died so long ago, way back in 1959, would only be celebrating his 70th birthday today had he lived?
The man is rightly a legend. His influence on the development of songwriting as an artform was huge -- arguably unparalleled.
Take the time to think of your favourite Buddy Holly track today. Hell, put on one of his records. My favourite is probably "That Makes It Tough". Here are the lyrics:
Memories will follow me forever
Though I know my dreams cannot come true.
All those precious things we shared together.
Time goes by, I’ll still remember you.
And that makes it tough, oh so tough,
When you tell me you don’t love me.
That makes it tough, oh so tough,
When you say you don’t care for me no more.
