#93

“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)
