Indeed. I was visiting that UK country I'm so fond of a while back and I was sitting in a Starbucks, minding my own business, when suddenly these quite familiar lyrics and moderately familiar melody started playing but the song was hardly familiar at all. I assume this was the original version of the song (or some other cover of it, I have no idea) and it hit me once more how great Jem's version is.
The version the coffee-mongers played for me resulted in an unenthusiastic "huh", while Jem's version brings on a fascinated "oooh!".

Wow, there's so much I don't know! I really ought to have been more familiar with the origins of that song...

But yes, it was the Buddy Holly version and yes, I recognise some of those. (;-)

I just did it for a laugh. I wanted to see if I could make and release a piece of music in 6 hours.

I can.  :lol:
