“Put Your Head on My Shoulder” is a song written by Canadian singer-songwriter Paul Anka. Anka’s version, released as a single in 1959, became very successful, reaching number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was repopularized when released as a single by The Lettermen in 1968. This version peaked just outside the top forty of the Hot 100, but continued their streak of top forty adult contemporary hits. This song is not to be confused with the Beach Boys’ “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on My Shoulder)“ (Brian Wilson/Tony Asher) from Pet Sounds (1966), with which it has much in common musically.
