    57 years ago today, the day the music died.

    How have I never featured a Buddy Holly song?

    "Oh, Boy!"

    Has it ever been covered?

    I think most of his popular songs have all been covered

    You try getting your song to be a classic rock staple with no electric guitars....
    (besides the bass)

    David Essex
    "Rock On"
    1973

    My City Was Gone is an awesome song.

    Learning to Crawl is a great album.

    It was my first & only Pretenders album. Very good stuff

    I don't know a lot about the band "Real Life" except that they're Australian, and I like this song.

    I know it's not, but every time I hear that song, I think it's Ultravox. Half way through it hits me.

    Great tune.

    I don't remember the song when it came out in 1983. I never heard it until I went hunting for new music in 1990. I found the CD The Best of Real Life: Send Me An Angel.

    I remember Catch Me I'm Falling. Not the Pretty Poison song, Catch Me (I'm Falling)

    Okay, so I'm not cutting edge like scotchandcigar's music thread. All my songs are somewhat (or a lot) vintage.
    154 songs in, and I've got NOTHING from the 2000's... until now. And this one's over a decade old already.

    The Killers
    "Mr. Brightside"
    2003

    Great song with good lyrics. And it's good to have a mix of classic music threads to go with the cutting edge stuff. My personal collection goes back to the 60's, so it's all good.

    Good tune.

    I like this one and Somebody Told Me.
    I hope they do some more edgier stuff like Somebody again.
    They do a good job with that kind of thing.

    Brandon Flowers originally wrote the song for Elmer Fudd's comeback tour, but nobody could understand the lyrics
