† Buddy Holly recorded two versions of the song in 1957. The game uses the Decca recording as opposed to the Brunswick recording backed with The Crickets.

†† The version used features Patsy Cline's original vocals from 1957, but overdubs the original backing instrumentation of steel guitars and piano with additional brass. This version was used in the 1985 biographical film Sweet Dreams about the singer's life.
