There have been many renditions of "Standby Me". My generation thinks of the original Ben E. King, some younger one think of John Lennon, and country fans think of Mickey Gilley's version from "Urban Cowboy". I also like the "Around the World" recent version.

I think we should credit the writers, as per Wikipedia "Stand by Me" is the title of a song originally performed by Ben E. King and written by Ben E. King, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.

Having been a shunee at one side of the family's gatherings I am proud to standby you and will be a shunner this year.
