Oops yesterday I skipped over this turkey and went to #17 Elvis Presley’s “Big Hunk O’ Love”- so I do have to back track and play #16 before #18 tomorrow.

Billboard #1 Hits: #16: “Lonely Boy”- Paul Anka. #1 July 13, 1959- #1 4 weeks. Released on ABC-Paramount. Written by Paul Anka. Genre: Pop. Time:2:31. B-Side:”Your Love.” Grade: D.

Canadian Paul Anka was just seventeen when he hit #1 with his second chart topper-“Lonely Boy”- his first had come a year earlier with “Diana”- he would have a long wait until his 3rd #1- 1974 with “You’re Having My Baby” one of the worst pop songs ever. In between Anka wrote the theme for The Tonight Show and “My Way” for Frank Sinatra.
