Paul Anka is an American icon, one of the great songwriters in pop-music history: 125 records, 900 songs, 60 million albums sold. He had four Top 20 hits in 1958 alone: "You Are My Destiny," "Crazy Love," "(All of a Sudden) My Heart Sings," and "Let the Bells Keep Ringing." Then came "Lonely Boy," "Put Your Head on My Shoulder," "Puppy Love"-too many to count. He spent the late 50s traveling, a kid living a romantic dream, touring with Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Eddie Cochran. He became friends with Buddy Holly, wrote and worked with him on his last hit, "It Doesn't Matter Anymore," which was to mark the start of a new direction for Buddy. Songs written by Anka and that will never be forgotten include "In the Still of the Night," "Sincerely," "(You're) Having My Baby," "Times of Your Life" and "It's Really Love," a hit for Annette Funicello.
