  • Camille from Toronto, OhIn the 70s when this song was popular, I was in high school, so its deep felt meaning didn't really register with me. Today, I heard it on the radio; this song I that I hadn't heard in many, many years. I'm now in my 50s and have experienced the emotional roller coaster of life,its ups, its downs, the ultimate highs and devastating lows, and listening to these lyrics touched me in the most profound way. I just choked up again reading the words to this tune. It should definitely be played, and heard, more often.
  • Howard from St. Louis Park, MnMy favorite of any Paul Anka song. It's perfect for my vocal range and it would also be the type of song Frank Sinatra would have recorded.
  • Ralph from Houston, TxThis is a truly amazing song from a legendary performer. They don't write 'em like that anymore!
