    It's the 59th anniversary of the day the music died, so I'm thinking about Buddy Holly's music a lot. Here's something from the tapes he made in his Greenwich Village apartment just before setting out on the ill-fated Winter Dance Party tour that ended in a frozen Iowa cornfield for Buddy, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Bopper.

    Here's another song from the apartment tapes after it was "Sixties-fied" by Norman Petty. I hate the way Petty tied up Buddy's money and forced him to go on that fatal final tour, but I like this embellishment because it does capture a wistful, impossible feeling of Buddy living on into the future.

    They played this stupid song on the radio and now it's stuck in my head.
    At least it's funny stupid.

    Every now and again my car's random shuffle of music will throw a song at me off of my Pure Funk album. Always fun.
