Ben E. King – Stand By Me-

Released in 1961, this song was inspired by the spiritual hymn “Lord Stand By Me.” It has since been recorded into more than 400 other versions.

It was ranked the 122nd out of Rolling Stones “500 Greatest Songs of All Time.” In early 2000 it was believed to be the 4th most performed song of the 20th century, with more than 7 million performances.

The Best Lyrics:

No I won’t be afraid, no I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
So darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, oh  stand by me
Oh Stand by me, stand by me
