About this song

"Stand by Me" is a song by John Lennon, written by Jerry Leiber/Mike Stoller/Ben E. King. It's from his album Rock 'N' Roll (1975). According to the documentary History of Rock 'n' Roll, Ben E. King had no intention of recording the song himself when he wrote it.[1] King had written the song for The Drifters, who passed on the chance to record it. It was not until after the "Spanish Harlem" recording session that he had some studio time left over. The session's producers, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, asked if he had any more songs and King played "Stand by Me" on the piano for them.
