One of my favorite songs, is Oh Boy by Buddy Holly.
I love how suddenly it starts. Unlike a lot of songs from that era, that had a little intro before the singing started. He just came out strong from the start. Not much else I can say about this song really… Just listen to it, and you’ll know what I mean.
I do enjoy the other “versions” of this song. But of course, you have to love the original.
Buddy Holly himself, on The Ed Sullivan Show.
Even though this movie was inaccurate, I still enjoyed The Buddy Holly Story, with Gary Busey. He didn’t do a good job “being” Buddy Holly, but I think he did a good job “covering” the songs.
And I love the Stray Cats version as well. It’s fun, and they definitely put their own feel into the song.
This is just one of the many great songs by Buddy Holly. But definitely, one of my favorites.
