Bye Bye Love — This Friday’s Song

This Friday’s song is “Bye Bye Love” by the Everly Brothers. This iconic song was first released by Cadence Records in 1957. Chet Atkins was the lead guitar player, Floyd Chance was the upright bassist and Buddy Harman was the drummer. It was later covered by Roy Orbison (1961), the Beatles (1969), Simon and Garfunkel(1970), and George Harrison (1974).

The Everly Brothers performed this song on the Ed Sullivan show several times. I chose their debut performance in 1957 and the much more mellow version they did in 1961 for this week’s post. I hope you enjoy “Bye Bye Love” by the Everly Brothers.

August 4, 1957
