At age 76, Paula Anka can still vividly recall what it was like hanging out with the Rat Pack in Sin City.

The Canadian crooner, a former ‘60s teen idol who’s still the only artist to have a Billboard Top 100 song through seven consecutive decades, also garnered fame for writing Frank Sinatra’s 1973 hit “My Way.”

“Me, Bobby Darin and a couple of others started in pop music, and we wanted to test ourselves: How are we going to evolve?” Anka told Closer Weekly Thursday. “... The Rat Pack were the only guys to emulate.

"Hanging out with them in the steam room, socializing, they knew who they were, and acquired wisdom to deal with their success. But they had a soft side. Frank [Sinatra] would say, ‘If I could just get another hit.'"
