Those lyrics make me cry every time.  Sigh...I cannot believe he is 80.


So much to love about that music.

I love Paul Anka and have loved him since Diana.  He almost always comes annually to one of the smaller venues in the NYC metro area.  We've seen him many times and even though the shows were all similar, we enjoyed them.


After missing 2020, we have tickets to see him in October.

LuLu:  Does Lou Christie also occasionally  perform in NY?


Love 'Lightning Strikes' and his other songs.

'More or less', 'Right or wrong', 'In general', and 'Just thinking out loud ' (as usual).

Happy Birthday, Paul Anka......growing up our neighbor used to play his record, 'Put Your Head on My Shoulder,' over and over!

Wow, he's 80?  Unbelievable.  It's scary how quickly time flies.
