"Peggy Sue" by Buddy Holly

Buddy Holly was top of the bill on The Winter Dance Party, already a seasoned veteran at the age of 22; in addition to Peggy Sue - shown here in a dire piece of kinescope from a December 1957 episode of The Arthur Murray Party, which was nevertheless the best clip available to me - Holly was known for the singles That'll Be the Day, Rave On, Oh Boy!, and Maybe Baby.

His death cut short a promising career, a career which is nonetheless still being accorded accolades to this day, including the obligatory biopic, 1978's dubiously truthful The Buddy Holly Story, which starred the dubiously human Gary Busey.
