rave on buddy holly Check Out: She & Him cover Buddy Hollys Oh Boy

From the Hundred Acre Wood to the annals of rock history, She & Him are the latest act to tackle a Buddy Holly classic for the upcoming Rave On Buddy Holly compilation. Taking their vintage sensibilities and copious amounts of cuteness, Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward have reworked The Crickets‘ 1957 hit “Oh Boy” into something so quaint we might choke on how adorable it is. Still, it’s fun and melodic and true to the original; check it out below courtesy of Stereogum.

Rave On Buddy Holly is due for release on June 28th via Fantasy Records/Concord Music Group.
