Rave On Buddy Holly

…a few songs from the upcoming Buddy Holly covers album (preorder here, more info etc).

As an avid Dysonology follower you’ll have already enjoyed Florence and the Machine’s version of Not Fade Away, but there are some other rocking tracks on it, notably:

The Black Keys’ cover of Dearest – originally it was called “Umm Oh Yeah (Dearest)“:

Then there’s She & Him covering Oh Boy:

Julian Casablancas doing Rave On (not as good as the original):

And of course Cee Lo Green doing Baby, I Don’t Care (You’re So Square) – again, I think I prefer the original:

Finally we’ve got My Morning Jacket doing a faithful cover of the beautiful True Love Ways:

Personally, I think the Black Keys one kicks the arse of the others, though Florence’s is pretty flaming good too.
