Stand by Me" is a song originally performed by American singer-songwriter Ben E. King and written by King, Jerry Leiber, and Mike Stoller. According to King, the title is derived from, and was inspired by, a spiritual written by Sam Cooke and J. W. Alexander called "Stand by Me Father," recorded by the Soul Stirrers with Johnnie Taylor singing lead. The third line of the second verse of the former work derives from Psalm 46:2c/3c.

Ben E. King (born Benjamin Earl Nelson in September 28, 1938 (died of natural causes, aged 76 on April 30, 2015. in Henderson, North Carolina) was an American soul and pop singer. He is best known as the singer and co-composer of "Stand by Me", a top ten hit in both 1961 and 1986. In 1958, Ben Nelson joined a doo wop group, The Five Crowns. Later that same year, The Drifters' manager fired the members of the group and replaced them with The Five Crowns, who had performed several engagements with The Drifters.

Stand by Me. Ben E. King. Produced by Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller. Album Don’t Play That Song! Stand by Me Lyrics. If the sky that we look upon Should tumble and fall And the mountains should crumble to the sea I won't cry, I won't cry, no I won't shed a tear Just as long as you stand, stand by me. And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh now now Stand by me Stand by stand by me stand by me. Darlin', darlin', stand by me, stand by me Stand by me stand by me stand by me. Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me, oh now now stand by me Oh stand by me, stand by me, stand by me. King recorded this shortly after leaving The Drifters in 1960. It gave him a solid reputation as a solo artist. Stand By Me" was the name of a gospel hymn written by the Philadelphia minister Charles Albert Tindley in 1905. His hymn became popular in churches throughout the American South and was recorded by various gospel acts in the 1950s. The most popular adaptation was by The Staple Singers, who recorded it in 1955. He and Phil Spector did an excellent cover of this song on his Rock 'n' Roll album, but Ben E. King's version will never be improved upon! Daniel from Sayreville, NjI think this song is wonderful, but it would be better if it was longer. Patrick from Omagh, IrelandThe Staples Singers sang at 'The Bands' farewell concert (The Last Waltz), the show was held in the Winterland Arena in Sanfrancisco in 1976 The performed with 'The Band' singing The Weight.

Otis Redding cut "Stand By Me" in 1964, just three years after Ben E. King, so maybe that's why he doesn't treat the song like a sacred text. The bass line remains, but the overall attitude is lighter, even mischievous, thanks to a horn section that offers color rather than punctuation. Blowfly is not one of them. On his 1974 live album, the foul-mouthed R&B heel turned King's sentimental hit into a desperate plea directed at an overeager lover.
