Can you sing any Buddy Holly songs? On a new release called Rave On, a wide variety of artists perform tunes by the rock pioneer.
Sir Paul McCartney pays tribute to one of the Beatles' biggest influences on the cover album out today. He even does some spontaneous "rapping" in parts of the song with his voice altered to where it doesn't even sound like the fab four's bass player, but more like a soulful southern preacher. McCartney's version of "It's So Easy" is easily the stand out track on the record.
Lou Reed's performance of "Peggy Sue" would be a close second, transforming Holly's sweet original into a distorted, mournful song about lost love.
