Jokes:

My friend thinks I'm as good a musician as Buddy Holly. I thought, "That'll be the day."
Submitted by: Robert D. Arndt Jr.
What few people know about Buddy Holly is that he was so enamored with one young lady that he sung about her all the time in his concerts. Needless to say, this young lady didn't enjoy the unwanted attention, so she brought him to court for sexual harassment. In other words.... Peggy sued Peggy sued Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty Peggy sued!

Original Lyrics:

Story about this misheard lyric by: Dumb

I have never been able to figure out what this lyric actually was. The lyric write ups I've seen didn't include the (du-ba-de-du-ba-de-dum) from the background vocalists, so I kept looking it up and thinking I had the wrong song.

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"It Doesn't Matter Anymore"
The Lyrics:
There's no use in me a cryin'
I've done everything and now I'm sick of trying
I've thrown away my nights
And wasted all my days over you.
Well you go your way and I'll go mine
Now and forever 'til the end of time
I'll find somebody new and baby
We'll say we're through and you won't matter anymore.
Why:
A break-up song with a happy beat, made even more depressing by Holly's fatal plane crash in 1959.
