“…Mommy, where do ideas for hit songs come from?…”
A still-struggling Buddy Holly went to a John Wayne movie on May 31, 1956 at the State theater in Lubbock, TX. The movie he saw was “The Searchers,” At two points in the movie, John Wayne sarcastically replies “that’ll be the day” to another character.
Those words gave Buddy an idea that led to him writing what would be his first hit record 62 years ago today.
