The tune's wistful yet forceful, especially when it briefly goes into a slightly ominous mode at the beginning of the bridge. Although the words are fairly simple, it's similar to some other Holly songs in that its view of love is a little more complex than those in most other rock'n'roll songs of the time.
It's not just about heartbreak; it's about the more self-conscious realization that heartbreak is an unavoidable part of experience. And although the song and performance are fairly upbeat, it delivers a sly and wicked message: love will make a fool of you, there's no escaping it.
Once "Love's Made a Fool of You" finally got released, it found its way into a number of other artist's repertoires. Bobby Fuller, who often sounded similar to Holly, did a fine, reverent cover version in that made the Top 30, smoothing out the rhythm and adding far more muscle to the arrangement. Also in , just-ex-folkie Tom Rush covered it on the "electric" side of his LP Take a Little Walk with Me, in which the folk singer went rock for the first time with a bunch of oldies covers.

Major Matchbox."Love's Made a Fool of You" is more pop than Bo Diddley, however, though not to its detriment. It's melodic rock'n'roll with hints of country and blues, decorated by crackling up-and-down electric guitar picking and emphatic, echoing handclaps.
