Put Your Head on My Shoulder origins: Singer and songwriter
The original version of ‘Put my head on your shoulder’ was written and sung by a Canadian named Paul Anka. It was released in 1959 as a single by ABC-Paramount and reached no. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the same year.
Paul was born in Ottawa and he wrote this song when he was at the peak of his popularity. He had hit songs before and after this song as well, although none of his singles came close to this gem.
This singer was born on 30 July 1941 which makes him 79 years old right now (January 2021) and you want to interact with him, he is active on Twitter under @paulanka.
