Oddly, this is one of my least favourite Buddy Holly songs.  But still gave it a 7.  I never cease to be amazed at how much music Buddy gave us in the few short years he was here.

What's crazy about Buddy's music is that it transcends time, like so many great artists. Still as good now as it was then.

Amazing, I had no idea Buddy was into the rave culture. He was so ahead of his time.

somehow I thought Raves used a different style of music than this.

The CD that this track is from is IMHO pretty much definitive. Sound quality is excellent.

Okay, I know you probably meant this in jest, except that in an environment that is saturated with firearms, it's not that funny any more. I live in the South where good ol' boys at events as tame as City Council meetings shout that so-and-so should be shot for saying one thing or another. Trouble is they mean it.

Buddy Holly is a god and with a very few others paved the way for practically ALL rock music that followed. 

If you had to listen to what purported for "popular" music in the '50s you would understand, the place this guy has.

"Rave On" is possibly the -BEST- of his songs... so many others were popular and played at the time and over the years. "Rave On" was rediscovered late in my years...and it holds all the great bits that a true classic should... It never seems aged, old, or quaint...  Thanks...

Yeah; Mellacamp can't play it like Holly & vice versa. They both rate a 9 in my book. Different artists, different styles IN CASE YOU COULDN'T FIGURE THAT OUT ON YOUR OWN!!!
