Phil Everly, one of the legendary rock duo Everly Brothers, died of a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease triggered primarily by his long time smoking habit last Friday, January 3, 2014 in a hospital in Burbank California. The heartbreaking news was told by Patti Everly, Phil?s wife, to Los Angeles Times.

Phil Everly, together with his brother Don, was listed in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986 as well as in Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001. The brothers were great influences in the music industry. The Beatles, a very famous English rock band, established their career in singing by doing covers of the songs of the Everly Brothers. The Beatles even said that they were the ?English Everly Brothers.?

Some of Everly Brothers? song are Bye Bye Love (1957), Wake Up Little Susie(1957), All I Have To Do is Dream (1958), Let it Be Me (1960), Cathy’s Clown (1960), So Sad (To Watch Good Love Go Bad) (1960), Walk Right Back (1961), Temptation (1961), The Price of Love (1965), and more. All of which my favorite is Let It Be Me which I first heard from the movie Flipped. However, the song was originally published in 1955 and also recorded by Gilbert Becaud and Mann Curtis. The Everly Brother?s version was the most popular ? placing 7th on Billboard Hot 100.

“Let It Be Me”

I bless the day I found you
I want to stay around you
And so I beg you
Let it be me

Don’t take this Heaven from one
If you must cling to someone
Now and forever
Let it be me

Each time we meet, love
I find complete love
Without your sweet love
What would life be?

So never leave me lonely
Tell me you love me only
And that you’ll always
Let it be me

Each time we meet love
I find complete love
Without your sweet love
What would life be?

So never leave me lonely
Tell me you love me only
And that you’ll always
Let it be me.
