I Can’t Help Loving You
Paul Anka in the late 50’s was high on the hit parade with Diana – such a successful song that he vowed to retire at the age of 17 (which he didn’t of course). He later made a fortune from penning ‘I Did It My Way’ for Frank Sinatra. I never imagined he could do a Soul song, but here at 78 on Kev Roberts list of Top 500 is “I Can’t Help Loving You”
Amazing. So it’s the song not the singer, the reverse in fact of our sixties scene that was a kind of reverse apartheid – we only believed that Soul could come from a black singer.
