Oh boy: Readers share their favorite Buddy Holly songs

His songs have been covered by acts ranging from The Beatles to Lyle Lovett and from The Rolling Stones to The Fray.
BUDDY HOLLY left a lasting legacy despite his short career.
This week, ROUTE 1 readers celebrate that legacy by answering the following FRIDAY QUESTION:
"What's your favorite Buddy Holly song?"
BRIAN C. -- "True Love Ways," just edging "Rave On."
JIM S. -- "That'll Be the Day." Interestingly, I like another completely different "That'll Be the Day," by the Partridge Family, just as much (but I'm kind of a nerd).
KERI M. -- "Everyday."
MARY N.-P. -- That's kind of like asking what your favorite brand of chocolate is - how can you ever choose? To pick one, I guess it would be "Rave On." Such talent cut short far too early.
RICK T. -- "Every Day." Love that song.
SANDYE V. -- It's between "Peggy Sue" and "That'll Be the Day."
BRIAN M. -- Perhaps his most aggressive recording, "Not Fade Away."
ERIK H. -- Buddy Holly's influence is so great, I didn't even realize he performed the original of "Crying, Waiting, Hoping," a song I had heard by The Beatles as well as a number of country artists.
