Brian Wilson's interpretation of Buddy Holly's classic song "Listen to Me" is a gorgeous merger of Holly's simple, direct melodic phrasing and Wilson's distinct arrangement and production style. The Beach Boys mastermind fills Holly's composition out with angelic harmonies and delicate instrumentation, enough so that some listeners would be forgiven for assuming that it was a Beach Boys tune all along. You can download the track, which will appear on the new Buddy Holly tribute album Listen to Me now, and pre-order the set, which includes covers recorded by Stevie Nicks, Jackson Browne, Ringo Starr, Zooey Deschanel and many others, at Amazon.
