Buddy Holly Everyday

Pop Songs

The song “Everyday” by Buddy Holly was the flip side to “Peggy Sue.”  “Everyday”  was credited to Charles Hardin (that is, Buddy Holly whose real name was Charles Hardin Holley)  and Norman Petty.  The song was recorded in 1957 at the Norman Petty Studios in Clovis, New Mexico. Due to some legal issues, only Holly was credited as the artist, but The Crickets are playing on the recording.  Norman Petty’s wife Vi  is on the celeste, which gives the track that special tinkling sound. The song is on Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.”

There have been covers of “Everyday.”. These include versions by Tina Robin, Bobby Vee, John Denver, Don McLean, James Taylor, Erasure, Rogue Wave, Peter White, Patrick Stump and many more.

Buddy Holly was born Charles Hardin Holley on September 7, 1936, in Lubbock Texas. He was a singer, songwriter, producer, and performer. During his short career, Holly was able to merge the sounds of rockabilly, country music, and R&B to help make rock and roll popular. He died on February 3, 1959, at the age of 22 in a plane crash along with Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper, and the pilot Roger Peterson. It became known as “the day the music died.”

Here are the lyrics to “Everyday” by Buddy Holly:

“Everyday it’s a gettin’ closer
Goin’ faster than a roller coaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A hey, a hey hey

Everyday it’s a gettin’ faster
Everyone said go up and ask her
Love like yours will surely come my way
A hey, a hey hey

Everyday seems a little longer
Every way love’s a little stronger
Come what may do you ever long for
True love from me

Everyday it’s a gettin’ closer
Goin’ faster than a roller coaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A hey, a hey hey

Everyday seems a little longer
Every way love’s a little stronger
Come what may do you ever long for
True love from me

Everyday it’s a gettin’ closer
Goin’ faster than a roller coaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A hey, a hey hey

Love like yours will surely come my way”
