Paul Anka Writes The Songs

You may have seen the news earlier this week that Paul Anka will reportedly receive 50 percent of the publishing rights from the new Michael Jackson single “This Is It” after it was discovered following its debut on Monday that it was in fact a song Jackson and Anka co-wrote in 1983. Anka had reportedly threatened legal action. The song is the centerpiece of the upcoming soundtrack to Jackson rehearsal documentary This Is It.

Did you know that the legendary 68 year old singer-songwriter also wrote the theme song to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson," as well as one of Tom Jones' biggest hits, "She's a Lady," and the lyrics to Frank Sinatra's "My Way"?
