This song originally was made by the Crickets, the band in which Buddy Holly was the singer. He later recorded it for his own album. The song title first was Cindy Lou, because the song would be for his niece. They changed the title when Jerry Allison (one of the Crickets members) had a breakup with his later wife. In 1957, the song hit number 3 in the US. Enjoy

Back in 1958, the song It’s So Easy was sung by the Crickets. One of their members was Buddy Holly, who recorded some hits solo later. They would not reach the charts with this song. In the seventies, the song was picked up by Linda Ronstadt. She recorded in 1977, and did reach the charts: number 5 in the US and number 11 in the UK. Another artist that had a go on the song several times was Paul McCartney. First with the Beatles, later solo, but he did not manage to chart with the song. Enjoy
