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

Probably you’ve already recognized the album on which the song of the day is. Yes, it’s a single from the hit album Rumours by Fleetwood Mac.

Summer Song of the Day #3: Bob Sinclar- Love Generation

We are almost there! It’s time for the Top 3, starting with number 3. And on number 3 there is a nice song with a nice whistle.
It was a big hit in 2005, and it gets better: the vocals were by Gary Pine. So what?, you might think.
I will tell you that Gary Pine was a member of the Wailers. You might know that name, but only in combination with Bob Marley. Gary Pine replaced Bob Marley in the Wailers, and made a new album with the Wailers.

He did the vocals for this song, Bob Sinclar the rest, and together it made a hit. A hit in the charts, but also in the Summer Song of the Day Top 20, where they ended on number 3!
