Check out the complete year-end schedule here.
“Put Your Head on My Shoulder” by Paul Anka (1959)
Along with this song, Paul Anka wrote such well-known music as the theme for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and one of Tom Jones’s biggest hits, “She’s a Lady”, as well as the English lyrics for Frank Sinatra’s signature song, “My Way”. In 1983, he co-wrote the song “I Never Heard” with Michael Jackson. It was retitled and released in 2009 under the name “This Is It”. (2013: not on survey, 2012: not on survey)
