Each day leading up to the unveiling of the 2015 Grooveyard Great 88, we’ll share a video of one song that just missed the survey. Hear the full Great 88 on a special five hour edition of “The Grooveyard” on Saturday, December 26 starting at 7 PM. Check out the complete year-end schedule here.
“Put Your Head on My Shoulder” by Paul Anka (1959)
The song was repopularized when released as a single by The Lettermen in 1968. This version peaked just outside the top forty of the Hot 100, but continued their streak of top forty adult contemporary hits. Mexican singer Enrique Guzmán recorded a Spanish version in the 1960s titled “Tu cabeza en mi hombro”. In Latin America. That cover is even more popular than the original one.
