Weezer ~ Buddy Holly (1994)

This sweet, upbeat tune had legs of its own but it became a true phenomenon as a video in how it melded the modern band Weezer into the old TV show “Happy Days”.

Weezer is another group my son Teddy introduced me to. In this song, the very singable melody and nostalgic lyrics about Buddy Holly and Mary Tyler Moore made it instantly popular. However, the video took it to another level becoming one of the most widely viewed music videos in history. It won a number of awards owing to the amazing editing that seamlessly inserts the band into the restaurant on the TV show Happy Days.
