"True Love Ways," was wrtten a few months before his death in a plane crash, ("The day the music died"), and release afterwards.  It is not whay we normally think of as, "Buddy Holly," and it might be mistaken for the title, "True Love Waits".



Here's a little mix version.

Here are many more videos of the song.

Mickey Gilley released a #! hit cover in 1980 - Video

Radiohead did a song called, "True Love Waits," on their A Moon Shaped Pool album - VIDEO HERE.

Radiohead did an earlier LIVE version, (album: "I Might Be Wrong"), which had a dif flavour - VIDEO HERE.

Don McLean "American Pie" tribute video to Buudy Holly, etc. - VIDEO HERE.

A history of the McLean song, "American Pie" - VIDEO HERE.

And here's an untypical hit from Eddie (Summertime Blues) Cochran, who died in a crash at age 21.  I find this song to be sophisticated and ahead of its time.


"Sittin' in the Balcony", one of the few songs Cochran recorded that were written by other songwriters, (in this case John D. Loudermilk).

The Syria attack reveals the hypocrisy of the West – which fuels the Saudi-led bombing campaign in Yemen despite documented abuses – but relies on unverified claims to punish Syria.

As Riyadh's campaign in Yemen enters its fourth year, it has been repeatedly accused by rights groups of civilian casualties during the bombardment. However, in Syria's case, reports of a chemical weapon attack in Douma that are yet to be independently corroborated became the trigger for a coordinated military action.

Gotland is a large Swedish island in Europe.  My guess is that the name originally meant, "Goat-Land."  Neolithic stone markings abound there.  Viking traders also left things there, like coins and plunder.  In the Wiki paragraph below, about a treasure found there, note the last sentence...

On 16 July 1999, the world's largest Viking silver treasure, the Spillings Hoard, was found in a field at Spillings farm northwest of Slite.[21] The silver treasure was divided into two parts weighing a total of 67 kg (148 lb) (27 kg (60 lb) and 40 kg (88 lb)) and consisted mostly of coins, about 14,000, from foreign countries, mostly Islamic.[22] It also contained about 20 kg (44 lb) of bronze objects along with numerous everyday objects such as nails, glass beads, parts of tools, pottery, iron bands and clasps. The treasure was found by using a metal detector, and the finders fee, given to the farmer who owned the land, was over 2 million crowns (about US$308,000).[23] The treasure was found almost by accident while filming a news report for TV4 about illegal treasure hunting on Gotland.[24]

(If you like the topic of treasures, then read about Oak Island, or the book/movie, "Treasure Island" - or the Island in SF).
