Out On Blue Six: Weezer, RIP Mary Tyler Moore

Weezer's 1994 hit Buddy Holly, with that fabulous Happy Days themed pop video and which namechecks Mary Tyler Moore, who has sadly passed away at the age of 80.

Tyler Moore, will be best remembered for her eponymous role in the US sitcom The Mary Tyler Moore Show, in which she played Mary Richards, a thirtysomething single woman and TV news producer - a role which arguably laid the foundations for the depiction of modern women on TV. Alongside this, she starred in The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-'66) as Van Dyke's character's wife, and in the films Thoroughly Modern Millie in 1967, and Ordinary People in 1980 which earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.
