Oh, Boy!

Oh, Boy!

Escrita por Sonny West, Bill Tilghman y Norman Petty

Interpretada por The Crickets (Brunswick 9-55035, 1957)

Buddy y Sonny West se conocieron en Lubbock en junio de 1956. Poco más de un año después, The Crickets, que empezaban a saborear las mieles del éxito gracias a "That'll Be The Day", imprimieron su particular estilo al tema que West había titulado originalmente "All My Love". Rebautizado como "Oh, Boy!", y acompañado por "Not Fade Away", salió a la venta en noviembre de 1957, obteniendo una fantástica acogida que queda perfectamente ejemplarizada en el comentario con el que la revista Cashbox abrió su reseña: "Resulta extraño que el disco que sigue a un éxito sea mejor que el propio hit original del artista en cuestión. Pero ese el caso de "Oh, Boy!", el nuevo lanzamiento de The Crickets".

All of my love

All of my kissin'

You don't know what you've been a-missin'

Oh boy, when you're with me

Oh boy, the world can see

That you were meant for me

 

All of my life

I've been waitin'

Tonight there'll be no hesitatin'

Oh boy, when you're with me

Oh boy, the world can see

That you were meant for me

 

Stars appear and shadows are falling

You can hear my heart calling

A little bit of lovin' makes everything right

And I'm gonna see my baby tonight

 

All of my love

All of my kissin'

You don't know what you've been missin'

Oh boy, when you're with me

Oh boy, the world can see

That you were meant for me

 

All of my love

All of my kissin'

You don't know what you've been missin'

Oh boy, when you're with me

Oh boy, the world can see

That you were meant for me

 

All of my life

I've been waitin'

Tonight there'll be no hesitatin'

Oh boy, when you're with me

Oh boy, the world can see

That you were meant for me

 

Stars appear and shadows are falling

You can hear my heart calling

A little bit of lovin' makes everything right

And I'm gonna see my baby tonight

 

All of my love

All of my kissin'

You don't know what you've been missin'

Oh boy, when you're with me

Oh boy, the world can see

That you were meant for me
