Songwriters Hall of Fame
-- inducted 1993
Anka was a hugely successful vocalist from 1957 into the '80's, as
well as writer of several venerable pop-music standards. The young
native of Ottawa, Canada, took the U.S. by storm in 1957 with his
rock-slanted ballad "Diana," a number one smash on
ABC-Paramount Records. Dramatic renditions of "You Are My
Destiny," "Lonely Boy," "Put Your Head on My
Shoulder" and "Puppy Love" elevated the youth to
teen-idol status over the next three years.
Moving to RCA in 1962, the maturing Paul Anka
continued to chart regularly, although some of his most notable '60's
copyrights were bequeathed to others. He returned to the top pop slot in
1974 with the controversial million-seller "(You're) Having My
Baby," cut in Muscle Shoals and issued on United Artists, and he
enjoyed several follow-up smashes, many featuring vocalist Odia Coates.
his career by entering amateur contests and sneaking into clubs, Paul
Anka has gone on to become one of the greatest songwriters in
history. He has achieved unprecedented success in every venue: stage,
screen, television and recording. His musical compositions are
internationally known and have been recorded by the greatest names in
the entertainment industry.
He set a milestone by being one of only a
few artists in history to have a record on Billboard's Top 50 charts for
five consecutive decades (Billboard statistic). He has also been named
the 21st most successful artist in Billboard's history (Billboard
statistic). He received the honor of being named one of Billboard
Magazine's most successful artists in history, putting him alongside
music greats Elvis Presley and the Beatles.
With well over 900 songs to his credit, Anka's songs
have been performed well over 90 million times (BMI statistic)
worldwide. His LP and single sales collectively number more than 42
million (BMI statistic).
contributions to the entertainment industry have earned him numerous
awards and special recognition. In addition to performing for heads of
state, he has been honored by the French government, who awarded him the
title: Chevalier In The Order of Arts and Letters. He is among only a
handful of Americans to receive this prestigious award. The National
Academy of Popular Music elected Anka into The Songwriters Hall Of
An indication of his versatility shows in his most
beloved song "My Way." It has been recorded not only by the
likes of Elvis Presley, but also, Sid Vicious, and most notably Frank
Sinatra. The list of performers recording Anka's songs is an honor role
of some of the most talented artists of all time: Sinatra, Presley,
Barbra Streisand, Buddy Holly,
and the Doobie Brothers. Paul Anka
has successfully collaborated with songwriters Davis Foster, Carol Bayer
Sage, Richard Marx,
Michael Jackson and many others.
Paul Anka's contribution to television is the
most recognized theme song in history. When Johnny Carson made his debut
as host of "The Tonight Show" in 1962, the Anka-written theme
was there too. Since the debut the theme song has been performed over
1,400,000 times. Many memorable film and television programs bear the
hallmark of Anka's unmistakable musical signature. In addition to
writing the theme music for "The Longest Day," Anka penned the
theme music and the title song for Louis Malle's "Atlantic
City" took top honors at the Venice Film Festival.
Throughout the world, the music of Paul Anka is
loved and its creator admired, in no small part due to his own
adaptability. In addition to a host of American hits abroad, he has
recorded more than ten albums in Japanese, German, Spanish, French and
Italian, composing songs culturally tailored to each country. Having
lived in Italy from 1964 to 1966, Anka claims a special love for that
country and its people. To date he has sold more than 15 million albums
and more than 3 million singles of the Italian song "Ogni
Volta." Seen in this light, his international celebrity is easily
understood –- a combination of his own hard work and his music's
