It's So Easy

Album: The Buddy Holly Story (1958)
  • It's so easy to fall in love.
    It's so easy to fall in love.

    People tell me love's for fools.
    So, here I go, breaking all the rules.
    It seems so easy (Seems so easy, seems so easy)
    Oh so doggone easy (Doggone easy, doggone easy)
    It seems so easy (Seems so easy, seems so easy, seems so easy)
    Where you're concerned, my heart has learned.

    It's so easy to fall in love.
    It's so easy to fall in love.

    (It's so easy to fall in love)
    (It's so easy to fall in love)

    Look into your heart and see,
    What your love book has set apart for me.
    It seems so easy (Seems so easy, seems so easy)
    Oh so doggone easy (Doggone easy, doggone easy)
    It seems so easy (Seems so easy, seems so easy, seems so easy)
    Where you're concerned, my heart has learned.

    It's so easy to fall in love.
    It's so easy to fall in love.

    Well it's so easy (It's so easy, it's so easy)
    So doggone easy (Doggone easy, doggone easy)
    It seems so easy (Seems so easy, seems so easy, seems so easy)
    Well where you're concerned, my heart has learned.

    It's so easy to fall in love.
    It's so easy to fall in love. Writer/s: BUDDY HOLLY, NORMAN PETTY

  • Rick from Los AngelesThe song was in fact released as a single on Brunswick in September of 1958.
  • Rick from New England UsaI have to say I am surprised there was no mention of Its So Easy covered by Hot Tuna in 1976. One of the most rocking versions I have ever heard and seen live. I also have seen Walons & Linda's versions live too. Have a listen and you will hear.

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn November 15th 1959, Johnny and the Moondogs* auditioned for 'TV Star Search', a British talent program...
    The group performed two Buddy Holly songs; "Think It Over" and "It's So Easy"...
    The group missed the next step of the competition due to the lack of money for a hotel room...
    * Three members of Johnny and the Moondogs were John Lennon. Paul McCartney, and George Harrison.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyAs already stated above on October 28th 1958, Buddy Holly lip-synced "Heartbeat" on the ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'...
    Exactly two months later on December 28th, 1958 it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #99; it remained on the chart for three more weeks, its 2nd week at position #96, then #87, and on its last week at #82...
    Its last day on the Top 100 was January 25th, 1959; and nine days later Buddy would die that that tragic plane crash in Clear Lake, Iowa...
    Twenty days after his death "It Doesn't Matter Anymore" entered the Top 100 at #82 on February 23rdth, 1959; and five weeks later on March 30th, 1959 it peaked at #13 {for 1 week} and spent 14 weeks on the Top 100...
    The record's B-side, "Raining in My Heart", also made the Top 100, it stayed on the chart for 2 weeks, peaking at #88...
    R.I.P. Charles Hardin Holley {1936 - 1959}.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn December 4th, 1977 "It's So Easy" by Linda Ronstadt peaked at #5 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart (stayed at #5 for 3 weeks); it had entered the chart on October 8th at position #77 and remained on the Top 100 for 18 weeks...
    It reached #9 in Canada and #11 in the United Kingdom...
    Was one of four tracks from her 1977 album "Simple Dreams" to make the Hot Top 100 Singles chart; the other three were, "Blue Bayou" (#3), "Poor Poor Pitiful Me" (#31), and "Tumbling Dice" (#32)...
    May God bless and watch over Ms. Ronstadt...
  • Mobiusdick from Worcester, MaWaylon Jennings was playing bass with Buddy Holly as one of the Crickets when the original Crickets were having contract issues with Decca. Waylon gave up his seat to J.P. Richardson (aka The Big Bopper) and guitarist Tommy Allsup flipped a coin with Richie Valens for the remaining seat because Valens had never flown on a small plane before. Waylon was always haunted until the day he died by the last thing he said to Buddy Holly, even though it was said in a jocund manner. Buddy told Waylon that he hoped the bus engine froze up in the snow storm, and Waylon said tongue-in-cheek, "Yeah, well I hope your plane crashes." The rest is history and the plane crash to South Dakota took the lives of three people at the tops of their careers: Buddy Holly, J.P. Richardson (aka The Big Bopper) and Richie Valens, along with pilot Roger Peterson.

  • Mobiusdick from Worcester, MaI think that Jerry Allison, drummer for Buddy Holly & The Crickets co-wrote this song with Buddy Holly and his manager Norman Petty. I am virtually certain of it, but would love if someone could check through legal channels.

  • Viktor from Vänersborg, SwedenI actually like Waylon Jenning's cover of this more than the original, and I'm a huge Holly fan.
  • Sandra from Gardnerville, NvSorry, Everyone, but I have to say this. Hell, Linda Ronstadt was one of the few artists us "women-folk" could use in order work in the disco era. I did it. I certainly admired her. Thank you, Linda.
  • Lester from New York City, NyAlways wondered where Holly's career would have taken him if not for the accident, as I wonder about Jimi Hendrix's career.
  • Teresa from Mechelen, BelgiumBuddy Holly, a great talent of the 50's. A stupid
    accident ended his brilliant career.
  • Stefanie Magura from Rock Hill, ScI agree. This is one of buddy Holly's best songs. Linda ronstat's cover is great too.
