Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/18/18

For SLS, Helen has asked us to consider songs with the word ‘listen’. Thanks, Helen!

This is a bit funny, because the song I chose last week was called, “Listen”, by Collective Soul.

Then, my yesterday’s post was about Buddy Holly and rock ‘n roll, so today I found a song called “Listen to Me”, by Buddy Holly. Interesting how all that kind of went together.

I couldn’t find out much about this song, because there is a tribute album with this title, where various artists were singing Buddy Holly songs. That’s what kept popping up when I searched for information about the actual song.

“Listen to Me”, by Buddy Holly, was released in 1958. It was written by Buddy Holly and Norman Petty, and is on the Coral label.

Listen to me and hold me tight
And you will see our love so right
Hold me darling, listen closely to me

Your eyes will see what love can do
Reveal to me your love so true
Listen to me, listen closely to me

I’ve told the stars you’re my only love
I want to love you tenderly
Those same bright stars in heaven above
Know now how sweet sweethearts can be

Listen to me, hear what I say
Our hearts can be nearer each day
Hold me darling, listen closely to me

Listen to me
Listen, listen, listen to me

I’ve told the stars you’re my only love
I want to love you tenderly
Those same bright stars in heaven above
Know now how sweet sweethearts can be

Listen to me, hear what I say
Our hearts can be nearer each day

    • I like when I recognize things like this, as you say, synchronicity. It happens sometimes. Yes, it was way too soon for Buddy and the others who perished that day. We’ll never know how much more they could have added to music’s history.

      • So true. 😦 It was right at the beginning of a major shift in musical direction. Buddy, Richie and the rest could well have been active and influencing music in this century like The Stones and Paul McCartney.
