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.
