The Originals: Songs The Beatles Covered: “Words Of Love”- Buddy Holly. Buddy Holly would rank up high on The Beatles list of influences. Holly wasn’t only an influence musically but the name they finally came up with for the band was influenced by Buddy Holly’s group- The Crickets- of course they changed it from beetles to Beatles. I wonder why it took them so long to cover one of Holly’s songs on an album? “Words Of Love” is a nice little song but hardly one of Holly’s top tunes.
