This pop ballad written by Paul Anka was recorded by Buddy Holly in 1958. The song reached No. 13 in the US charts in early 1959 shortly after Holly was killed in a plane crash on February 3, 1959. The single was a double-sided hit with "Raining in My Heart" on the reverse. "It Doesn't Matter Anymore" was Holly's last US Top 20 hit and featured the orchestral backing of Dick Jacobs.
In the UK the song reached No. 1 on April 24, 1959, and remained in the top slot for three weeks becoming the first posthumous No. 1 hit in UK chart history. Holly would continue to achieve posthumous chart success in the UK well into the 1960s.
