Beach Boys Wouldn't It Be Nice Wouldn't it be nice if we were older, Then we wouldn't have to wait so long. "Wouldn't It Be Nice" was a 1966 top five hit and was from the Beach Boys' historic and very inventive lp, "Pet Sounds". "Pet Sounds" lp by many rock critics is considered the start of modern day rock, since "Pet Sounds" very greatly influenced the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" lp a year later. - Peter

The Beatles The Long And Winding Road The long and winding road that leads to your door, Will never disappear I've seen that road before, It always leads me here lead me to your door.  "The Long And Winding Road" is a Lennon/McCartney tune (although more Paul) from the Beatles' "Let It Be" lp. The single of "The Long And Winding Road" along with it's flip (B-side) side tune the George Harrison written tune, "For You Blue" (also on the "Let It Be" lp) would be the final #1 tune for the group the Beatles, for two weeks in June of 1970 (to show how definitive the change in pop music was to be past the final #1 tune of the Beatles, the #1 song to replace the Beatles' "The Long And Winding Road"/ "For You Blue" at that position would be the Jackson Five's "The Love You Save"). "The Long And Winding Road"/ "For You Blue" single would reach #1 six months after the Beatles announced and made official their breakup. - Peter

The Beatles One After 909 My baby says she's trav'ling on the one after 909. "One After 909" is a Lennon/McCartney tune (although more Paul, but surprisingly it is probably along with "Get Back" the most like the songs of old where Paul and John actually recorded it as written as a seemingly united duo -- part of that was achieved by the influenced by the "fifth" Beatles, Billy Preston who seemed to be able to soothe the demeanor of both Paul and John long enough for them and the other two Beatles -- George and Ringo to act like the group they used to be -- as a their manager the late great Brian Epstein used to be able to do). "One After 909" was also one of the songs that the Beatles performed on the impromptu rooftop concert at the studios of the Abbey Road in London, in February 1969, during the recording of the "Abbey Road" lp -- as detailed in the "Let It Be" film. But the Beatles decided to wait to release the song on the "Let It Be" lp. - Peter
The Beatles Love Me Do Love, love me do  Although "Love Me Do" was the first hit the Beatles had in their native Great Britain (1963), it would be a year later when (in spring 1964) before it would be #1 in the states (according to Billboard Magazine's HOT 100 charts). "Love Me Do" was also the only #1 for the Beatles, in the states, that was released as a single NOT on the Capital label, but on the Swan label. Between their third #1, "Can't Buy Me Love" and their fourth #1, "Love Me Do" there was two weeks when Louis Armstrong had the #1 with "Hello, Dolly!" and Mary Wells had the #1 with "My Guy". "Love Me Do" also was #1 for only one week. - Peter
The Beatles Octopus's Garden I'd like to be under the sea In an octopus's garden in the shade. "Octopus's Garden" is the most recognizable tune of the Beatles that was written by Richard Starkey who is more known as Beatles' drummer, Ringo Starr, and also the most recognizable tune that has Ringo on lead vocal (except maybe for "With A Little Help With My Friends" from the Sgt. Pepper lp). Due to it's popularity, many people think that "Octopus's Garden" was released as a single, but they would be wrong -- it wasn't. "Octopus's Garden" was only released as a track on the Beatles next to last recorded as a group lp, "Abbey Road" (released in 1969). "Abbey Road" was a very difficult lp for the Beatles to record as the breakup that was about to occur was very much in evidence and the Beatles wanting to go their separate ways (John Lennon was already recording and going on concert with his Plastic Ono Band). "Abbey Road" had many backlogs in release dates, and Capitol records with the Beatles' "Apple" label being a subsidary of Capitol being happy with the delays. Even the Beatles producer, George Martin would later tell about his unhappiness and consternation about the recording of "Abbey Road". "Abbey Road" was intended by the Beatles to be their final lp, but they found out from executives at Capitol that their contract made them have to record one more lp, and that lp would be the final one, although not released until after they announced the breakup in the winter of 1970, "Let It Be". - Peter
The Beatles Michelle Michelle, ma belle These are words that go together well. "Michelle" is from the Beatles' December 1965 album, "Rubber Soul". The vocalist is Paul McCartney and is generally assumed that Paul wrote most of the lyrics with John Lennon's minimal help. "Michelle" was never released as a single, but is one of the most internationally recognizable Beatles tunes. Supposedly five time Ladies single figure skating world champion (1996, 1998, 2000, 2001 & 2003), nine time U.S. champion figure skater (1996, 1998 - 2005) and 1998 Olympic Silver medalist and 2002 Olympic Bronze medalist, and now U.S. goodwill ambassador, Michelle Kwan was named after the Beatles' tune. - Peter
The Beatles Piggies Have you seen the little piggies Crawling in the dirt. "Piggies" is a George Harrison written tune from the Beatles' "White Album". - Peter
The Beatles Penny Lane In Penny Lane there is a barber showing photographs of every head he's had the pleasure to know.  Penny Lane is an actual street in Liverpool where the Beatles were from. - Peter
The Beatles Two Of Us Two of us riding nowhere Spending somone's hard earned pay. "Two Of Us" is a Lennon/McCartney tune (more Paul) from the Beatles' final lp recorded as a group, "Let It Be". The lp, "Let It Be" was released post the announced winter 1970 breakup of the group. The documentary film of "Let It Be" records very well the recording of the lp, "Let It Be". - Peter
The Beatles What Goes On? What goes on in your heart? "What Goes On?" was another Beatles tune written by Lennon & McCartney, but they gave lead vocals Ringo Starr. - Peter
The Beatles Birthday You say it's your birthday. "Birthday" is a Lennon/McCartney tune (although more Paul) from the Beatles' "White Album". Classic Rock and many Classic Hits and uptempo Easy Listening stations play the Beatles' "Birthday" in saluting someones birthday -- and has sometimes taken over the role that the traditional, "Happy Birthday To You" used to play. - Peter
The Beatles Yesterday Yesterday all my trouble seemed so far away Now it looks as though they're here to stay Oh I believe in yesterday   - Peter
The Beatles Cry Baby Cry Cry baby cry, make your mother sigh. "Cry Baby Cry" is a Lennon/McCartney tune (although more John) from the Beatles' "White Album". - Peter
The Beatles Nowhere Man He's a real nowhere man, Sitting in his nowhere land, Making all his nowhere plans for nobody.   - Peter
The Beatles I'm So Tired  I'm so tired, I haven't slept a wink, I'm so tired, My mind is on the blink. "I'm So Tired" is another Lennon/McCartney tune from the Beatles' "White Album". Although most of the tunes were written by John and Paul, or at least listed that way, with the "White Album" you can definitely tell which ones were definitely written (and indeed nearly solely performed) by John and which ones were from Paul (unlike most of the rest of previous albums, with a few exceptions). For example, "I'm So Tired" is definitely more of a John Lennon tune. The group going in seperate directions post the death of Brian Epstein was much more in evidence on the "White Album" than it was on the previous lp, "Magical Mystery Tour" -- the breakup was coming. - Peter
The Beatles Let It Be When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom, let it be.   - Peter
The Beatles Across The Universe Words are flying out like endless rain into a paper cup, They slither while they pass they slip away across the universe. "Across The Universe" is a Lennon/McCartney tune (although more John) from the Beatles' "Let It Be" lp. There were actually two different versions of "Across The Universe" (the only time while the Beatles were still releasing records from, 1962 to 1970 that that happened -- their would be other versions of songs as 45's released during that time that would later be released on lp's -- this is not counting the multi-language recordings from the mid-1960's of many of their hits). One of the versions of "Across The Universe" was an electronic version that was the one released as a single and went to #3 in the spring of 1970. The other version of "Across The Universe" was an acoustic version released on the "Let It Be" lp. Both versions are excellent and but many split hairs on which one is better (I myself like both versions). "Across The Universe" has been recorded and released by many artists, including, but not limited to Fiona Apple in 1998 for the film, "Pleasantville". - Peter
The Beatles Can't Buy Me Love Can't buy me love, love Can't buy me love  - Peter
The Beatles Why Don't We Do It In The Road?  Why don't we do it in the road, Why don't we do it in the road, Why don't we do it in the road, Now I really want to know more, Why don't we do it in  The final word in the opening lines: "... road?" "Why Don't We Do It In The Road?" was a Lennon/McCartney tune (although more Paul) from the Beatles' "White Album". - Peter
The Beatles Help! Help, I need somebody, Help, not just anybody, Help, you know I need someone Help!  - Peter
The Beatles Good Night Now it's time to say good night, Good night, sleep tight. "Good Night" is a Lennon/McCartney tune (although more Paul) from the Beatles' "White Album". A matter of fact, "Good Night" was the final tune on the two disc set lp. - Peter
The Beatles Something Something in the way she moves, attracts me like no other lover.  - Peter
The Beatles While My Guitar Gently Weeps I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping While my guitar gently weeps. "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" was written by George Harrison, and it's mainly him on the guitar as the song suggest and his lead vocals, on this track (from the Beatles' "White Album lp) that is probably the second most popular track written by Harrison after the Beatles' "Something". - Peter
The Beatles She Loves You She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah  - Peter
The Beatles Here Comes The Sun Here comes the sun, Here comes the sun, And I say, "It's all right". "Here Comes The Sun" is written by George Harrison and is on the Beatles' "Abbey Road" lp. Despite it's cheery message, "Here Comes The Sun" track shows how much the Beatles were in disarray at this point with much of the recording of "Here Comes The Sun" not having all of the Fab Four in the studios -- both John and Paul would miss part of the recording of "Here Comes The Sun". - Peter
The Beatles Hey Jude Hey jude, don't make it bad. Take a sad song and make it better. Remember to let her into your heart, then you can start to make it better.  - Peter
The Beatles Dear Prudence Dear Prudence, Won't you come out to play, Dear Prudence, Greet the brand new day. "Dear Prudence" is a Lennon/McCartney tune from the 1968 "White Album" (the actual name of the lp was "Beatles" -- but with it being a totally white sleeve for a two disc -- originally in vinyl -- set) lp. - Peter
The Beatles Revolution You say you want a revolution, Well, you know, we all want to change the world. "Revolution" is a Lennon/McCartney tune (although more John). "Revolution" is from the Beatles' "White Album", but was released as the flip side to the Beatles' #1 for nine weeks single, "Hey Jude", and "Revolution" went to #2 on the charts in the fall of 1968. "Revolution" has several different versions, just from the Beatles' themselves. "Revolution" would have a resurgance in popularity (although not the way John had intended) in the late 1980's when the shoe company Nike would use it in their commercials. The fall of 1968 was a heady, but difficult time (with the start of the breakup in evidence), for the Beatles with not only "Hey Jude" and "Revolution" dominating the charts, but also the Beatles first signed on artist to their "Apple" label, Mary Hopkin having her first hit tune (a #2 hit), "Those Were The Days". - Peter
The Beatles Lady Madonna Lady Madonna children at your feet, Wonder how you managed to make end's meet. "Lady Madonna" was a Lennon/McCartney tune that went to #3 on the charts, for the Beatles, in the spring of 1968. But "Lady Madonna" was not released on an lp until the 1970 post-breakup lp, "Hey Jude". - Peter

The Beatles Rain  If the rain comes they run and hide their heads, They might as well be dead. "Rain" is another Lennon & McCartney tune from 1966. It was originally the flip side of the Beatles' summer 1966 #1 hit, "Paperback Writer", but "Rain" went to #2 on the charts on it's own. "Rain" wouldn't appear on an lp until 1970, the post-breakup lp, "Hey Jude". - Peter
The Beatles Dr. Robert Ring my friend I said you call Dr. Robert. "Dr. Robert" is another Lennon & McCartney tune from the Beatles' 1966 "Revolver" lp. - Peter

The Beatles Good Day Sunshine Good day sunshine, Good day sunshine, Good day sunshine. "Good Day Sunshine" is a Lennon & McCartney tune from the Beatles' 1966 lp, "Revolver". - Peter
The Beatles I've Just Seen A Face I've just seen a face I can't forget the time or place where we just met, She's just the girl for me and I want all the world to see we've met.  "I've Just Seen A Face" is a Lennon & McCartney tune that currently is included on the Beatles' "Help!" CD (as was originally intended). But "I've Just Seen A Face" first appeared in the U.S. on the Beatles' "Rubber Soul" vinyl lp (that wasn't true in Britian). With "I've Just Seen A Face" also shows that Lennon & McCartney were greatly being influenced by Bob Dylan with it's definite foray into folk-country-rock. - Peter

The Beatles I'll Be Back  You know if you break my heart I'll go, But I'll be back again. "I'll Be Back" is yet another Lennon & McCartney tune from the Beatles' 1964 "A Hard Day's Night" lp. Beatlemania was in full swing by this time, worldwide. Even if the Beatles had stopped recording after "A Hard Day's Night", their place in history was already established, as well as that of the songwriting duo of John Lennon & Paul McCartney. But "A Hard Day's Night" was fortunately not the last we'd hear from the group or the duo. - Peter

The Beatles I Wanna Be Your Man I wanna be your lover, babe, I wanna be your man. "I Wanna Be Your Man" is another song written by Lennon & McCartney from the Beatles' 1963' second lp, "With The Beatles". "I Wanna Be Your Man" would later be covered by the Rolling Stones (with Mick Jagger's snears fitting in perfectly with this tune), and the Stones would have the bigger hit with the tune. - Peter
The Beatles It Won't Be Long It won't be long yeh, yeh, yeh It won't be long yeh, yeh, yeh It won't be long yeh, yeh Till I Belong to you. "It Won't Be Long" was from the Beatles' second lp, 1963's "With The Beatles", and was showing how Lennon & McCartney were progressing as songwriters. All tunes on "With The Beatles" were written by John & Paul, unlike the debut lp. Beatlemania was in full swing in Britian and Europe and starting up in Japan, the states were about to come under Beatlemania. - Peter

The Bee Gees Too Much Heaven Nobody gets too much heaven no more, It's much harder to come by, I'm waiting in line. It took a year (December 1977) from the release of the Bee Gees' "Night Fever" (the last #1 song from the group from the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack) to "Too Much Heaven" (December 1978). That was the longest time since their release of "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart" (1971) to "Jive Talkin'" (1975) for the Brothers Gibb. "Too Much Heaven" the first of three #1's for the group in 1979 culled from the "Spirits Having Flown" lp (the other two were "Tragedy" and "Love You Inside Out") was also a throwback to the group's days of MOR/ easy listening material. - Peter

The Bee Gees Jive Talkin'  It's just your jive talkin', You're telling me lies, yeah!  So started the disco era for the Bee Gees.

Betty Garde & Ralph Riggs The Farmer And The Cowman Oh, the farmer and the cowman should be friends Oh, the farmer and the cowman should be friends.  "The Farmer And The Cowman" is another song from Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Oklahoma!" Although considered a chorus tune, "The Farmer And The Cowman"'s first line is sung by two characters Aunt Eller and Andrew, and the first thespians to play those two characters back in 1943 were Betty Garde and Ralph Riggs. "The Farmer And The Cowman" also place the musical "Oklahoma!" as taking place sometime during the last decade of the 19th Century (1890's), even if nothing else about the musical did, during a time when the farmer and the cowman were fighting each other over land. - Peter

Bill Haley & His Comets (We're Gonna) Rock Around The Clock 1, 2, 3 o'clock, 4 o'clock rock, 5, 6, 7 o'clock, 8 o'clock rock, 9, 10, 11 o'clock, 12 o'clock rock, We're gonna rock around the clock tonight. Although there had been rock 'n' roll charting tunes since the late 1940's ("Rocket 88"), the first #1 rock 'n' roll record on Billboard Magazine's Hot 100 charts was Bill Haley & His Comets' version of "(We're Gonna) Rock Around The Clock". The song was #1 in the summer of 1955 on the Billboard charts, and set into motion the whole rock 'n' roll era of music. It had a slow ride to chart hit and later cult status. It was written by Max C. Freedman & James E. Myers (as Jimmy DeKnight) back in late 1952 originally as "(We're Gonna) Rock Around The Clock Tonight". It was recorded first by Sonny Dee & the Knights in 1953, but that version didn't get very far. Later it was heard by Bill Haley and Decca record producer, Milt Gabler who decided to record it with the Comets on April 12, 1954. Gabler and Haley released the tune as the B-side of a song entitled, "Thirteen Women (And Only One Man In Town)" and it nearly died an early chart death (didn't even chart in 1954 when it was released in May of that year). If it had not been for the fact that a young man named Peter Ford had bought the record for his collection the song might have gone into obscurity. Peter Ford was the son of actor Glenn Ford and Glenn Ford had been cast along with dancer Eleanor Powell to star in the teen centered drama, "Blackboard Jungle" in 1955. Glenn heard Peter's record and then took the record to the producers of "Blackboard Jungle" and Bill Haley & His Comets' version of "(We're Gonna) Rock Around The ClocK" was chosen as the film's theme song, where it helped move the song to #1 for eight weeks during the summer of 1955. In 1956 there would be a movie with the same title released with Bill Haley as the star. Bill Haley would re-record the tune in 1968 and meet with moderate success. "(We're Gonna) Rock Around The Clock" would further cement it's lofty status in rock 'n' roll when ABC's new hit comedy series, "Happy Days" (about nostalgia for the 1950's) would incorporate the tune (by Bill Haley) as the original theme song (first two seasons). - Peter

Blondie The Tide Is High The tide is high, But I'm holding on. The third #1 for Blondie was released in the fall of 1980 (it was #1 song for two weeks in January 1981) and was taken from the "Autoamerican" album (the slightly later #1 hit "Rapture" would also be taken from this album). It was actually a remake of a minor 1967 UK hit by the Jamiacan group The Paragons (John Holt the lead singer of The Paragons wrote the song). The all female group, Atomic Kitten would have a 2002 UK hit with "The Tide Is High" which was more pop than Blondie's version, but much of Atomic Kitten's version is borrowed from Blondie's version. - Peter
Blondie Heart Of Glass Once I had a love and it was gas, Soon turned out had a heart of glass. "Heart Of Glass" was the group, Blondie's first #1 single back in 1979. Although, it was a #1 tune, it was met with much controversy. Up until the release of this tune that blended both the popular at the time, disco, with the less popular but rock critics darling punk and the up and coming new wave, no punk or new wave group would attempt what Blondie had done. A matter of fact, it was seemingly a hard and fast rule that no group with it's roots in punk (and with punk audiences, it was sort of considered a sacrilege amonst punk artists and fans) would ever attempt a disco tune. Blondie though decided to go ahead and do so, and obviously did quite well with mixing the genres. Unfortunately for a while it seemed to alienate them from the punk fans that had originally supported them. But Blondie was paving the way for the more popular new wave of the early 1980's and alternative rock sounds of the 1990's and beyond with "Heart Of Glass" and adventually even the hardcore punk fans of the time would realize that Blondie was onto something that needed to be done. The song and the originally "studio performance" (they weren't even performing though and were lip synching to the recording -- and that is obvious) video was released on the "Parallel Lines" album back in the fall of 1978. When it started to become more popular on disco dance floors, the group Blondie cut another video of "Heart Of Glass" (with the sound improved) that is a very historic look at the night life of New York city in the late 1970's. The second video starts with a very cool aerial camera nighttime view of the World Trade Center (destroyed on 9/11/2001). It then scans over some of the city streets, including passing by "The Ed Sullivan Theatre", and then takes us inside of the old "Studio 54" Disco where Blondie is onstage "performing" (again if you take a close look they are not performing, since they are playing with their instruments and a disco ball and the electric guitars, keyboards, drums and even lead singer Debbie Harry's microphone is not plugged in, and there was also no audience in the video -- "Studio 54" was actually closed for the shooting of the video). After Blondie performs the tune, and Debbie Harry sings her last note, there was one last nighttime aerial shot of the World Trade Center. - Peter

Bobby Hebb Sunny Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain. "Sunny" was the biggest hit of Bobby Hebb's (born Robert Von Hebb in Nashville, Tennessee on July 26, 1941) career as a solo r&b/pop artist. "Sunny" went into the top five in Billboard's HOT 100 charts in the spring of 1966. Considered somewhat of an irony song, "Sunny" was written by Hebb on November 23, 1963 the day of President John F. Kennedy's assassination and the knifing death of Bobby's older brother, Harold (who he used to have song and dance team with) outside a Nashville nightclub. The international success of "Sunny" gained Hebb the right to be the only North American act to open for the Beatles during the Beatles' 1966 worldwide tour when it came to the U.S. that summer. "Sunny" has also been re-recorded many times and is listed as one of the top 25 tunes of the Rock 'n' Roll era. Although it might appear that "Sunny"'s success means that Bobby Hebb is a one-hit wonder, that isn't true, although he never had that kind of success on the pop charts, Hebb still had plenty of success on the r&b/soul charts. - Peter

Bobby Vee Come Back When You Grow Up  Come back when you grow up, girl. "Come Back When You Grow Up" was the last top ten hit for Bobby Vee and had the unusual distinction of being Bobby Vee's song hit to be in the top ten post the Beatles success in America -- in 1965. - Peter

Bobby Vee What Do You Want? What do you want if you don't want money  - Brianna Spilk
Bobby Vee One Last Kiss One last kiss, one last kiss, give me one last kiss. "One Last Kiss" is somewhat prophetic. "One Last Kiss" is prophetic in many ways since it was Bobby Vee's last top twenty hit before the Beatles were to start the British Invasion -- as what would happen to many American artists. A matter of fact unlike his previous hit from the summer of 1963 (with "One Last Kiss" being it's followup in the winter of 1964), the #3 hit, "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes" it got stalled and may have gotten stalled on the charts thanks to the Beatles. - Peter
Bobby Vee Charms Pretty charms, pretty little charms, see how they sparkle in the Sun  - Candy Welty
Bobby Vee Devil Or Angel Devil or angel, I can't make up my mind Which one you are I'd like to wake up and find. "Devil Or Angel" was a top ten hit for Bobby Vee that predates his #1 hit "Take Good Care Of My Baby". "Devil Or Angel" went into the top ten in the fall of 1960. - Peter
Bobby Vee Be True To Yourself Be true to yourself and you'll always be true to me.  - Candy Welty
Bobby Vee Run To Him If you've found another guy who Satisfies you more than I do Run to him. "Run To Him" is a 1962 top five hit for Bobby Vee. - Peter
Bobby Vee Sharing You  Sharing you, I know I'm sharing you. "Sharing You" was a top 15 hit in 1961 that was Bobby Vee's follow-up to his #1 hit "Take Good Care Of My Baby". "Sharing You" also shares "Take Good Care Of My Baby" songwriters, Gerry Goffin and Carole King. Despite "Sharing You" stalling at #15, Bobby Vee would come back shortly with another Top Ten hit. - Peter
Bobby Vee Take Good Care Of My Baby My tears are fallin' cause you've taken her away And though it really hurts me so There's something that I've got to say, "Take good care of my baby"  The baby is sung drawn out by Bobby Vee as "ba-a-a-by". "Take Good Care Of My Baby" was the first and only #1 tune for Bobby Vee (born Robert Thomas Velline in Fargo, North Dakota on April 30, 1943) in the spring of 1961. Bobby Vee is a teen idol that had the rare distinction of lasting much longer in his career than most of his peers. (He still tours today, despite having three song and a daughter). Vee got his start on the evening of February 2, 1959 as the opening act in the final Clear Lake, Iowa concert for Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and Big Bopper before the famous plane crash that killed the three of them. One of the keys to Vee's staying power was using the songwriting talents available at the Brill Building in New York, a matter of fact "Take Good Care Of My Baby" is from the husband and wife team of Gerry Goffin and Carole King -- yes, that would be the Carole King who would later go successfully solo with the hit lp, "Tapestry" in 1971. Bobby Vee has been recognized by the Rockabilly Hall Of Fame for his contributions to pop/rock music. - Peter

It reached #5 in the UK Singles Chart. The song was covered by Boy George in 1992 as the theme to the Neil Jordan movie, The Crying Game. Produced by the Pet Shop Boys, it turned out to be his last major hit single, reaching #22 on the UK Singles Chart, #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the U.S. and #1 in Canada.

"Everyday" was written by Norman Petty and Charles Hardin. - Peter
Buddy Holly Heartbeat Heartbeat, why do you miss when my baby kisses me?  - Candy Welty
Buddy Holly Peggy Sue If you knew Peggy Sue Then you'd know why I feel blue About Peggy, 'bout Peggy Sue Oh well, I love you, gal Yes, I love you Peggy Sue  "Peggy Sue" is another hit for the Crickets written by Buddy Holly. Buddy Holly has also influenced much of pop culture outside of the world of music, including films, and several films have mentioned or been the basis behind this one song, "Peggy Sue". - Peter
Buddy Holly Early In The Morning Well, you're gonna miss me early in the morning one of these days. A rather prophetic hit for the Crickets, "Early In The Morning" again written by Buddy Holly. Prophetic in the fact that Holly would be killed on an "early in the morning" on February 3, 1959. - Peter
Buddy Holly That'll Be The Day Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye. 1957's "That'll Be The Day" was the only #1 song for the group the Crickets (with me calling them Buddy Holly and the Crickets for a reason, mainly since Holly was the driving force behind the music) and the only song to go to #1 written by the late great Buddy Holly. Buddy Holly's influence on Rock 'n' Roll is inmeasurable, with him still influencing the post-punk bands such as Weezer (Weezer's song, "Buddy Holly" is an obvious tribute to the man), the Killers and Green Day to today, despite the fact that Holly's recording career was only for a very brief two years of 1956 - 58. A matter of fact, in 2004, Rolling Stone magazine named Holly the #13 100 Greatest Artists of All Time with special mention to his contribution and continuing influence on Rock 'n' Roll and pop to this day. Holly was born Charles Hardin Holley on September 7, 1936 in Lubbock, TX into a musical family. His first instrument was the violin, then he took up the piano and then the instrument that would give him his fame and leave us his legacy, the guitar. In the Fall of 1949, he teamed up with a junior high classmate, Bob Montgomery, to form the Bluegrass duo, "Buddy and Bob". Buddy Holly was in the High school choir. In 1955, he saw Elvis Presley in concert and decided to give up Bluegrass for Rock 'n' Roll. In 1956, Holly was proficient enough in Rock 'n' Roll to not only open for Elvis Presley in Lubbock, but also Bill Haley & His Comets and also signed to a contract at Decca Records. With the signing of this contract so started his last name change from "Holley" to "Holly". Decca executives suggested that he team up with the Crickets (Jerry Allison, Joe B. Mauklin and Niki Sullivan) after hearing the original 1956 demo for "That'll Be The Day". "That'll Be The Day" with Buddy Holly and the Crickets was recorded in April 1957 and quickly released by Decca and shot straight up to #1 (with Buddy Holly and the Crickets making appearances on the important national variety shows, including the biggie at the time, "The Ed Sullivan Show") for four weeks in the summer of 1957. Buddy Holly from the start with "That'll Be The Day" was known for highlighting and expanding on hallmarks that would continue in Rock 'n' Roll and much of pop (including rap and hip hop) up until today. These hallmarks included: The first to repeatedly using a "hiccup" technique on many words in a song, the first to repeatedly and continuously emphasis certain words in a song, first to use the instrument the celestra, the first to emphasis the lead rhythm guitar. He toured the UK in 1958, and was said to have influenced many of the artists that would start the British invasion of the mid-1960's, including the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Hollies (some dispute about whether the Hollies named themselves after the Hollies), etc. Holly married Maria Elena Santiago on August 15, 1958, and very near the end of 1958 he and the Crickets went their separate ways so Holly could pursue a solo career. In pursuing the solo career, Holly accepted a U.S. tour with artists, Richie Valens and J. P "Big Bopper" Richardson. In what would become, unfortunately, the next to last concert date at the Duluth, Minnesota National Guard Armory, a young (later to be known for his rock and folk music) Bob Dylan saw Buddy Holly in concert standing only three feet away from Holly with their eyes meeting. On the morning of February 3, 1959, just after a concert the night before in Clear Lake, Iowa, eight miles out of Clear Lake the Beachcraft Bonanza private plane carrying the 21-year old pilot, Roger Peterson, the Big Bopper, Valens and Holly crashed killing all four instantly. Holly left behind a pregnant wife who shortly after would miscarry the child, and a treasure trove of music and his influence on Rock 'n' Roll history. Three songs were written for the memory of the too young to be dead (32 years old at the time; one of these includes the aforementioned Weezer song), Holly, with perhaps the most famous and most recognized (which was also about the loss of Valens and Big Bopper, as well), Don MacLean's 1972 #1 epic, "American Pie". In the mid-1970's, artist, Linda Ronstadt would re-record "That'll Be The Day" without any changes and send the song soaring up near the top of the charts, again. - Peter
Buddy Holly Oh, Boy! All of my love, All of my kissin', You don't know what you've been a-missin' Oh, boy (!) (Oh, boy!), when you're with me Oh, boy (!) (Oh, boy!), the  The rest of the opening line: " ... world can see That you, were meant, for me." "Oh, Boy!" is another of the Crickets hits written by Buddy Holly. A personal note about Buddy Holly, even though I wasn't born until 1963, when I was introduced to Holly's music in the early 1980's, I became an instant fan just because of Buddy Holly wearing glasses like I did and at that time I looked about as gangly as Buddy Holly (I was even told back then that I favored Buddy Holly by a few people). - Peter
Buddy Holly Maybe Baby Maybe baby, I'll have you. "Maybe Baby" was another hit song from the Crickets written by Buddy Holly. - Peter
Buddy Holly It's So Easy It's so easy to fall in love! "It's So Easy" is another song for the Crickets written by Buddy Holly. Again, Linda Ronstadt would re-record it in the mid-1970's and take it soaring into the charts, again, and again not changing a thing. - Peter
Buddy Knox Party Doll Well all I want is a party doll, To come along with me when I'm feelin' wild, To be everlovin', true and fair, To run her fingers through my hair. "Party Doll" was Buddy Knox's only #1 song, from 1957. Buddy Knox was born July 20, 1933 in Happy, Texas and was greatly influenced by Tex Mex music in coming up with his form of rockabilly. Buddy Knox died of cancer on February 14, 1999 in Bremerton, Washington leaving five children behind. - Peter
Bullet White Lies, Blue Eyes White lies in her blue eyes, goodbye's on the way There is no musical intro to this song, it starts "cold". Song peaked at #28 on the Billboard Chart in January 1972. - Greg Hulak

The Byrds Eight Miles High Eight miles high and when you touch down You'll find that it's stranger than known. The Byrds' 1966 top ten hit, "Eight Miles High" was one of the most controversial and most banned songs of the 1960's. There was much speculation what the band meant about "Eight Miles High" in light of the drug culture of the decade. But all-in-all, "Eight Miles High" is a great psychedelic trip of a song. - Peter
The Byrds So You Want To Be a Rock 'N' Roll Star So you want to be a rock 'n' roll star. Then listen now to what I say.  - Brian Kelly
The Byrds Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is A Season) To everything (turn, turn, turn) There is a season (turn, turn, turn) And a time for every purpose, under heaven.  For the 1960's first folk-rock group, the Byrds' second #1 tune (December 1965), they turned to the writer Pete Seeger who wrote the words to this song obviously protesting the Vietnam War. But Seeger took the lyrics from a source far older than 1960's. Pete Seeger adapted "Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is A Season)" from the Bible's Book of Eclesiastes. - Peter
The Byrds Have You Seen Her Face Have you seen her face? With her eyes reflect the colors in the sky (Editor's note: Funny coincidence. I'm watching "Cougar Town" as I add this and Dan Byrd showed up onscreen.) - Candy Welty
The Byrds Mr. Tambourine Man Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me  - Candy Welty
