    Bob says "Hoping you can add this slightly tweaked version of Buddy Holly's 'It doesn't Matter Anymore' to the list. I play it a bit more slow and hurtin' than his version, and I added in an [Em] in the verses to make it even sadder."

    The video is in the same key!

    "It Doesn't Matter Anymore" is a pop ballad written by Paul Anka and recorded by Buddy Holly in 1958. Paul Anka wrote it specifically for Holly. The song reached number 13 as a posthumous hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in early 1959, shortly after Holly died in a plane crash on February 3, 1959. Anka donated his royalties from the song to Holly's wife. He said: "'It Doesn't Matter Anymore' has a tragic irony about it now, but at least it will help look after Buddy Holly's family. I'm giving my composer's royalty to his widow - it's the least I can do." "It Doesn't Matter Anymore" was Holly's last US Top 20 hit and featured the orchestral backing of Dick Jacobs. In the United Kingdom the song reached number 1 on April 24, 1959, and remained in that position for three weeks, becoming the first posthumous number 1 hit in UK chart history.
