Favorite Buddy Holly Cover?

Over the years many groups and artists have covered Buddy Holly songs, I doubt there’s a single Buddy Holly song that hasn’t been covered.  My favorite of all the covers was done by Peter and Gordon in 1965, when they took “True Love Ways” to #14 on the Hot 100 and was one of four records by Peter and Gordon to sell a million copies..  With Gordon handling lead vocals, the song is one of those great slow songs that dominated sock hops back in the day.  Today, “True Love Ways” is a forgotten oldie regardless of the version.
