Words of Love by The Beatles – ***

First released: 1964

I’m pretty dense. I never knew this was a cover of an old Buddy Holly tune as it sounds exactly like something McCartney would have composed around this time. Later, I discovered it when I heard the Holly original and said to myself, “How did Buddy Holly record a cover of a song The Beatles wrote when he died in 1959?” How, indeed. It’s off of "Beatles For Sale".
