The chord progressions are fascinating, and I think the lyrics are great. The songwriting team of Holly/Montgomery would have been powerful in the 1960s and beyond if not for the tragedy.

At a time when songs by Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent were banned because of "suggestive content" it was pretty clever and sly of Buddy and Bob to write

"I've been hoping all along - things would turn out right
If I could find a wishing star - then I could spend the night...

Wishing - that I could see you every day"

Years later, the Rolling Stones couldn't sing "Let's Spend The Night Together" on Ed Sullivan. It had to be "Let's Spend Some Time Together"
