10 minutes later, it kind of gets old. The song would be better if it were shorter.

Sorry I meant 56 years, time flies but not that fast. 3 Feb 1959.

It was 61 years ago today that the music died. This song, written about a dozen years later, will forever come to mind when 3 Feb comes around.

Isn't this song about when Buddy Holly and other rock legends died in a plane crash?

It's a roller coaster ride , when you put a lot of effort into something, then, get shunned away , after a while, people realize there actually was something special there ...example : nirvana
