Is there anything more classic than hearing “Put Your Head on My Shoulder” while slow dancing with your sweetie? This 1959 hit from Paul Anka is pure gold and will take many people back to parked cars and school dances! This classic song has older folks remembering first loves and younger folks wondering why they weren’t born earlier.
The song was a hit again ten years later with the Lettermen in 1969, but Anka’s rendition is still the best, reaching #2 on the Billboard charts in 1959. This glorious love song was written by none other than Paul Anka himself. Have a listen in the video from The Ed Sullivan Show below.
