Wonder how many people know that Paul Anka was born in Canada?
Paul is from Ottawa and enjoyed big hits by the time that he was a teenager.
He is one of the few pop artists who had Top 10 songs in the 1950s, 1960's & 1970's! Who else but Elvis can say that?
His songs were very romantic and catchy.
They were the kinds of songs that filled Top 40 play lists of AM radio stations. I'm sure that lots of our parents have Anka 45's among their belongings and souvenirs.
I learned in the 1970's that Paul Anka composed "My Way" and several TV songs, such as The Tonight Song theme song! How would you like to collect those royalties?
A few years ago, Paul wrote an autobiography. He also left us an amazing collection of hit songs, available now on digital.
