This was a shot in the dark: I was bopping around YouTube, saw this record, and had no idea what it was, so I listened. It surprised me to find out that it ws the song used as the theme for The Mary Tyler Moore Show, which ran from 1970 to 1977 and is considered one of the great TV shows of all time. Sonny Curtis got his start when he joined The Crickets (Buddy Holly’s band) in late 1958. When Buddy died in the plane crash on “the day the music died,” Sonny took over as lead guitarist and vocalist. As a songwriter, Sonny wrote “Walk Right Back” for The Everly Brothers, and he and The Crickets did a couple more of his songs, “I Fought The Law,” which became a hit for The Bobby Fuller Four, and “More Than I Can Say,” later covered by Leo Sayer and Bobby Vee.
