More than I can say

"More Than I Can Say" originally released in 1960, is a song written by Sonny Curtis and Jerry Allison, former members of Buddy Holly's band The Crickets and was recorded by their band in 1959 soon after Holly's death. Their original version hit #42 on British Record Retailer Chart in December 1960. It has since been made iconic following the performances by Bobby Vee and Leo Sayer.

British song-writer and singer Leo Sayer made this a cover version in the year 1980 and it almost earned him a spot on the charts, following his two singles reaching #1 in the U.S., "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing" and "When I Need You", both in 1977.

This evergreen hit is part of my list of all time favourites, and will remain so for all time to come.
