I'm Looking For Someone To Love

I 'm Looking For Someone To Love

Escrita por Buddy Holly y Norman Petty

Interpretada por The Crickets (Brunswick 9-55009, 1957)

Buddy Holly, Larry Welborn, Jerry Allison y Niki Sullivan llegaron al estudio de Norman Petty en Clovis la tarde del 24 de febrero de 1957 con el objetivo de grabar un par de temas que usar como demo para tratar de encontrar alguna compañía interesada en su música. Pagaron 60 dólares por la sesión, recibiendo a cambio cuatro acetatos y, tres semanas más tarde, cuando ya Joe B. Mauldin había sustituido a Larry Welborn como bajista de la banda, firmaron un contrato discográfico con Coral, subsidiaria de Decca. En junio, Brunswick, sello dependiente a su vez de Coral, lanzó un single acreditado a The Crickets con los dos temas que se habían concebido inicialmente como simple demo. Eran "That'll Be The Day" y "I'm Looking For Someone To Love" y el resto, es Historia...

Stayin' at home, waitin' for you

Just won't get it 'cause you say we're thru

Well I'm lookin' for someone to love

I'm lookin' for someone to love

Well if you're not here

But baby, I don't care

'Cause I'm lookin' for someone to love

 

Playin' the field all day long

Since I found out I was wrong

Well I'm lookin' for someone to love

I'm lookin' for someone to love

Well if you're not here

But baby I don't care

'Cause I'm lookin' for someone to love

 

Caught myself, thinkin' of you

You can't love me and an other one too

Well I'm lookin' for someone to love

I'm lookin' for someone to love

Well if you're not here

But baby I don't care

Because I'm lookin' for someone to love

 

Drunk man, street car

Foot slipped, there you are

Well I'm lookin' for someone to love

I'm lookin' for someone to love

Well if you're not here

But baby I don't care

'Cause I'm lookin' for someone to love

I'm lookin' for someone to love

I'm lookin' for someone to love

I'm lookin' for someone to love

I'm lookin' for someone to love
