Gordie recalls a childhood incident when he, his best friend, Chris Chambers, and two other friends, Teddy Duchamp and Vern Tessio, journeyed to find the body of a missing boy near the town of Castle Rock, Oregon, during Labor Day weekend in September 1959. Twelve-year-old Gordie's parents are too busy grieving the recent death stand by me older brother Denny to give Gordie much attention. While looking for money that he buried beneath his parents' porch, Vern overhears his older brother Billy talking with his friend Charlie about finding the body of the missing boy, Ray Brower, outside of town.

Billy does not want to report the body because it could draw attention to the fact he and Charlie recently stole a car. When Vern tells Gordie, Chris, and Teddy what he heard, the four boys—hoping to become local heroes—decide to go looking for the body. After Chris steals his father's pistol, he and Gordie run into local hoodlum "Ace" Merrill and Chris's older brother, "Eyeball" Chambers. Ace threatens Chris with a lit cigarette and Eyeball steals Gordie's Yankees cap, which was a gift from Denny.

The four boys begin their trip. After stopping at a junkyard for water, they are caught trespassing by owner Milo Pressman and his dog, Chopper. They escape over a fence, and Milo calls Teddy's mentally ill father a "loony". An enraged Teddy tries to attack Milo but is restrained by the other boys.

The four continue their hike, and Chris encourages Gordie to fulfill his potential as a writer despite his father's disapproval. When they cross a railroad bridge, Gordie and Vern are nearly killed by an approaching train, but jump off the tracks and escape serious injury. That evening, Gordie tells the fictional story of David "Lard-Ass" Hogan, an obese boy who stand by me constantly bullied. Seeking revenge, Lard-Ass enters a pie-eating contest and throws up deliberately, inducing mass vomiting among contestants and the audience (which Gordie dubs a "barf-o-Rama").

That night, Chris confides to Gordie that he hates being associated with his family's reputation. He also admits to stealing milk money at school, however, he tells Gordie he later confessed and returned the money to a teacher. Despite this, Chris was suspended, and the teacher did not turn the money into her superiors. Devastated by the teacher's betrayal, Chris breaks down and cries. The next day, the boys swim across a river and discover it is filled with leeches.

Gordie faints after finding a leech in his underwear. After more hiking, the boys locate Ray Brower's body. The discovery is traumatic for Gordie, who asks Chris why his brother Denny had to die and claims his father hates him.

Chris disagrees, asserting that Gordie's father simply does not know him. Ace and his gang arrive, announce that they are claiming the body, and threaten to beat the four boys if they interfere. When Chris insults Ace and refuses to back down, Ace draws a switchblade. Gordie gets the gun, fires a warning shot, and stands beside Chris with the gun pointed at Ace. Ace demands the weapon, but Gordie refuses to give it to him and calls him a "cheap dime-store hood".

Ace and his gang retreat, vowing revenge. The four boys, realizing that it would not be safe for anyone in this case to claim credit for finding the body, agree to report it to the authorities via an anonymous phone call.

They walk back to Castle Rock and part ways. Back in the present day, adult Gordie stand by me writing a memoir of the journey. He states that Vern stand by me Teddy drifted away from him. Vern married after high school, had four children, and became a forklift operator. Teddy tried to get into the army several times but failed due to his eyesight and his ear; he later ended up in jail and started doing odd jobs around Castle Rock as part of his parole. Chris choose to take the college prep courses with Gordie in school and, although he struggled, he made it as a lawyer, with the two eventually drifting apart.

However, while attempting to break up a fight in a restaurant, Chris was stabbed to death. Despite not having seen Chris in over a decade, Gordie adds that he will miss him forever. Gordie ends his story with the following words: "I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve.

Jesus, does anyone?"

[5] Bruce A. Evans sent a copy of The Body to Karen Gideon, the wife of his stand by me and writing partner Raynold Gideon, on August 29, 1983 as a gift for her birthday. [6] Both Gideon and Evans quickly became fans of the novella and shortly thereafter contacted King's agent, Kirby McCauley, seeking to negotiate film rights; McCauley replied that King's terms were $100,000 and 10% of the gross profits. Although stand by me money was not an issue, the share of gross profits was considered excessive, especially considering that no stars could be featured to help sell the movie.

In response, Evans and Gideon pursued an established director, Adrian Lyne, to help sell the project.

{INSERTKEYS} [6] After reading the novella, Lyne teamed up with Evans and Gideon, but all the studios the trio approached turned the project down except for Martin Shafer at Embassy Pictures. Embassy spent four months negotiating the rights with McCauley, settling on $50,000 and a smaller share of the profits, and Evans and Gideon spent eight weeks writing the screenplay. Evans and Gideon asked to also produce the film, but Shafer suggested they team up with Andy Scheinman, a more experienced producer.

[6] Embassy was unwilling to meet Lyne's salary for directing the film until Evans and Gideon agreed to give up half of their share of profits to meet Lyne's asking price. [6] Lyne was going to direct the film, but had promised himself a vacation following the production of 9½ Weeks, [7] [8] and would not be available to start production until the spring of 1986. [6] Reiner was better known at the time for playing Michael Stivic in All in the Family and had just started a directing career, making comedies like This Is Spinal Tap and The Sure Thing.

He was sent the script by Scheinman, [6] and his initial reaction was the script had promise but "no focus". [3] After Lyne withdrew from the project, Reiner signed on to direct in September 1984. [6] In a 2011 interview, Reiner discussed his realization that the film should focus on the character of Gordie: "In the book, it was about four boys, but...once I made Gordie the central focus of the piece then it made sense to me: this movie was all about a kid who didn't feel good about himself and whose father didn't love him.

And through the experience of going to find the dead body and his friendship with these boys, he began to feel empowered and went on to become a very successful writer. He basically became Stephen King." [7] Reiner has said that he identified with Gordie, as he himself struggled with the shadow of fame cast by his comedian father, Carl Reiner.

[3] The writers incorporated Reiner's suggestions, producing a new script by December 1984 for Embassy's review and approval. [6] Days before the shooting started in the summer of 1985, Embassy was sold to Columbia Pictures, who made plans to cancel the production.

[6] Norman Lear, one of the co-owners of Embassy and the developer of All in the Family, gave $7.5 million of his own money to complete the film, citing his faith in Reiner and the script.

[3] However, since Embassy also would have distributed the film, once the film was completed it had no distributor. The producers showed a print to Michael Ovitz, head of the powerful Creative Artists Agency, and Ovitz promised to help them find a distributor. [6] Paramount, Universal Pictures, and Warner Bros. all passed on the film; Columbia Pictures production head Guy McElwaine screened the film at his house because he was feeling ill, and the positive reaction of his daughters convinced him to distribute the film.

[6] [3] In March 1986, Columbia Pictures, concerned that the original title, The Body, was misleading, renamed the film Stand by Me. According to screenwriter Raynold Gideon, The Body "sounded like either a sex film, a bodybuilding film, or another Stephen King horror film. Rob came up with Stand by Me, and it ended up being the least unpopular option." [9] Casting [ edit ] In a 2011 interview with NPR, Wil Wheaton attributed the film's success to the director's casting choices: Rob Reiner found four young boys who were the characters we played.

I was awkward and nerdy and shy and uncomfortable in my skin and sensitive, and River was cool and smart and passionate and even at that age kind of like a father figure to some of us, Jerry was one of the funniest people I had ever seen in my life, either before or since, and Corey was unbelievably angry and in an incredible amount of pain and had a terrible relationship with his parents.

[10] Feldman recalled how his home life translated into his onscreen character: "[Most kids aren't] thinking they're going to get hit by their parents because they're not doing well enough in school, which will prevent them from getting a work permit, which will prevent them from being an actor." [3] O'Connell agreed that he was cast based on how his personality fit the role, saying "Rob wanted us to understand our characters.

He interviewed our characters. [...] I tried to stay like Vern and say the stupid things Vern would. I think I was Vern that summer." [11] Reiner and the producers interviewed more than 70 boys for the four main roles, [6] out of more than 300 who auditioned; [11] Phoenix originally read for the part of Gordie Lachance.

[11] Ethan Hawke auditioned for Chris Chambers. [12] Before filming began, Reiner put the four main actors together for two weeks to play games from Viola Spolin's Improvisation for the Theater (which Reiner called "the bible" of theater games) [11] and build camaraderie. As a result, a friendship developed between the actors. [3] Wheaton would recall "When you saw the four of us being comrades, that was real life, not acting." [11] Before settling on Richard Dreyfuss as the narrator (and the role of the adult Gordie), Reiner considered David Dukes, Ted Bessell, and Michael McKean.

[3] Filming [ edit ] Bridge on the road leading into Brownsville, Oregon, which was used for the penultimate scenes (2009) Principal photography began on June 17, 1985, and ended in late August 1985. Parts of the film were shot in Brownsville, Oregon, which stood in for the fictional town of Castle Rock. The town was selected for its small-town 1950s ambience. [13] [14] Approximately 100 local residents were employed as extras. [13] The "barf-o-rama" scene was also filmed in Brownsville.

A local bakery supplied the pies and extra filling, which was mixed with large-curd cottage cheese to simulate the vomit. [15] The quantity of simulated vomit varied per person, from as much as 5 US gallons (19 l) during the triggering event to as little as 1⁄ 16 US gallon (0.24 l).

[15] The McCloud River Railroad trestle across Lake Britton in California, which was used for the train chase scene (2012) The scene where the boys outrace a steam train engine across an 80-foot tall trestle was filmed on the McCloud River Railroad, above Lake Britton Reservoir near McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park in California. [16] The scene took a full week to shoot, making use of four small adult female stunt doubles with closely cropped hair who were made up to look like the film's protagonists.

[16] Plywood planks were laid across the ties to provide a safer surface on which the stunt doubles could run. [16] The film crew even brought a brand-new camera for use in the shot, only for it to jam between the rails on the first shot. The locomotive used for the scene, M.C.R.R. 25, is still in daily operation for excursion service on the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad.

[16] Telephoto compression was used to make the train appear much closer than it actually was. The actors did not feel a sense of danger until Reiner threatened them as follows: "You see those guys? They don't want to push that dolly down the track anymore. And the reason they're getting tired is because of you...

I told them if they weren't worried that the train was going to kill them, then they should worry that I was going to. And that's when they ran." [7] Music [ edit ] Jack Nitzsche composed the film's musical score. On August 8, 1986, a soundtrack album was released containing many of the 1950s and early 1960s oldies songs featured in the film: • " Everyday" ( Buddy Holly) – 2:07 • " Let the Good Times Roll" ( Shirley and Lee) – 2:22 • " Come Go with Me" ( The Del-Vikings) – 2:40 • " Whispering Bells" ( The Del-Vikings) – 2:25 • " Get a Job" ( The Silhouettes) – 2:44 • " Lollipop" ( The Chordettes) – 2:09 • " Yakety Yak" ( The Coasters) – 1:52 • " Great Balls of Fire" ( Jerry Lee Lewis) – 1:52 • " Mr.

Lee" ( The Bobbettes) – 2:14 • " Stand by Me" ( Ben E. King) – 2:55 The movie's success sparked a renewed interest in Ben E.

King's song " Stand by Me". Initially a number four pop hit in 1961, the song re-entered the Billboard Hot 100 in October 1986, eventually peaking at number nine in December of that year. [17] The song was also reissued in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland, where it topped the UK Singles Chart and Irish Singles Chart respectively for three consecutive weeks in February 1987.

The movie was released in both countries the following month.

The film's widest release was 848 theaters, and it ended up earning $52,287,414 overall, well above its $8 million budget.

[22] Critical response [ edit ] Reviewing the film for The New York Times, Walter Goodman opined that Reiner's direction was rather self-conscious, "looking constantly at his audience". Goodman called the film a "trite narrative" and said that "Reiner's direction hammers in every obvious element in an obvious script." [23] In his review for the Chicago Tribune, Dave Kehr wrote that there was "nothing natural in the way Reiner has overloaded his film with manufactured drama".

[24] In contrast, Sheila Benson called the film "[a treasure] absolutely not to be missed" in her review for the Los Angeles Times. [25] Paul Attanasio, reviewing for The Washington Post, called the acting ensemble "wonderful" and particularly praised the performances by Wheaton and Phoenix.

[26] Stephen King was very impressed with the film. [27] On the special features of the 25th anniversary Blu-ray set, King indicated that he considered the film to be the first successful translation to film of any of his works. According to a later interview with Gene Siskel, Reiner recalled that after a private early screening of the film, King excused himself for fifteen minutes to compose himself; he later returned to remark, "'That's the best film ever made out of anything I've written, which isn't saying much.

But you've really captured my story. It is autobiographical.'" [28] [29] In a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" chat in 2017, Reiner said that Stand by Me is his personal favorite of his own films. [30] On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 91% based on 57 reviews and a rating average of 8/10. The website's critical consensus reads: " Stand by Me is a wise, nostalgic movie with a weird streak that captures both Stephen King's voice and the trials of growing up." [31] On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 75 out of 100 based on 20 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews." [32] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "A" on an A+ to F scale.

Hannaford added that the film "has a charm and depth that seems to resonate with each generation".

[7] In 2016, several writers commemorated the 30-year anniversary of the film's release. Rolling Stone's Charles Bramesco called Stand By Me "timeless", "a staple of youthful nostalgia for its deft straddling of the line between childhood and adulthood", and "the rare movie that necessarily gets better with time". [41] Others described the film as a "coming-of-age classic" [42] [43] and as a film that stood at "the apex of the ’80s kids’ movie boom". [44] Events and tourism [ edit ] Brownsville, Oregon has held an annual "Stand By Me Day" since 2007.

The event has attracted international participants. [13] On July 24, 2010, a 25th Anniversary celebration of the filming of Stand by Me was held in Brownsville. The event included a cast and crew Q&A session, an amateur pie-eating contest, and an outdoor showing of the film. [45] In 2013, July 23 was designated as Stand By Me Day by the Brownsville Chamber of Commerce. [46] To encourage tourism, the city has embedded a penny in the street at a location where the fictional Vern found one in the film.

An advertising mural painted for the movie production has survived. [47] Film [ edit ] • The Oscar-nominated urban drama Boyz n the Hood has several direct references to Stand by Me, including a trip by four young children to see a dead body, and the closing fade-out of one of the main characters. Director John Singleton has stated that he included the references because he was a fan of the movie. [48] • The coming-of-age film Now and Then (1995) has been described as a "female" version of Stand by Me by many critics.

• Jonathan Bernstein states the pop culture discussions between characters in films by Quentin Tarantino originate in the similar semi-serious banter between the boys of Stand by Me.

[49] • Reviewers have seen an influence from Stand by Me in the 2011 movie Attack the Block, directed by Joe Cornish. [50] • The movie Mud (2012) has a character (Neckbone) who has been called a "perfect fusion of River Phoenix and Jerry O'Connell in 'Stand by Me.'" [51] [52] The writer and director, Jeff Nichols, said of the film "Yeah, you know, I basically remade Stand by Me" when defending the work-in-progress to studio executives. [53] • The Kings of Summer, a 2013 coming-of-age film by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, has been reviewed as being inspired by Stand by Me.

[51] [54] [55] • Love and Monsters (2020) includes an excerpt of the song " Stand by Me" and shortly after a scene involving large poisonous leeches. [56] Music [ edit ] Dan Mangan's song "Rows of Houses" (2011) is based on the film and takes the perspective of Gordie Lachance.

[57] Production company [ edit ] In 1987, following the success of Stand by Me, Reiner co-founded a film and television production company and named it Castle Rock Entertainment, after the fictional town in which the film is set.

[27] Television [ edit ] • Seinfeld, the first television show produced by Reiner's Castle Rock production company, featured banter between Jerry Seinfeld and George Costanza that was reminiscent of the dialogue between the protagonists of Stand by Me.

[49] • The plotline of " The Blunder Years", a 2001 episode from the thirteenth season of The Simpsons, revolves around a repressed childhood trauma in which Homer Simpson, along with his friends Lenny and Carl, discover a body blocking an inlet for the Springfield Quarry. [51] [58] • The film was parodied as one of three King stories in the Family Guy seventh season episode " Three Kings". In addition to featuring Dreyfuss reprising his role as the Narrator, the episode makes several references to the film and its cast.

• Actors auditioning for roles on the Netflix show Stranger Things were asked to read lines from Stand by Me and one episode was titled "The Body" in homage to the source novella. • The Rick and Morty episode, " The Ricklantis Mixup", makes references to the film with four multi-verse Mortys, and another referenced during a campfire.

[51] [59] • The film is featured in the Euphoria episode, " A Thousand Little Trees of Blood" when Fez and Lexi watch the movie and sing the title song with each other.

Video games [ edit ] The film is referenced in Pokémon Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow for the Nintendo Game Boy, as well their Game Boy Advance remakes, Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, where the player character's mother is watching the movie on TV. [60] When interacting with the TV, the player character says: "There's a movie on TV. Four boys are walking on railroad tracks.

I better go too." This reference exists in both the original Japanese versions and the English localizations, though is different in the remakes when the female player character is selected.

King singles chronology "Souvenirs of Love" (1981) " Stand by Me" stand by me " Spanish Harlem" (1987) " Stand by Me" is a song originally performed in 1961 by American singer-songwriter Ben E. King and written by him, along with Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, who together used the pseudonym Elmo Glick.

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. [3] It was featured on stand by me soundtrack of the 1986 film of the same name, and a corresponding music video, featuring King along with actors River Phoenix and Wil Wheaton, was released to promote the film.

It was also featured in a 1987 European commercial of Levi's 501 jeans, contributing to greater success in Europe. In 2012, its royalties were estimated to have topped $22.8 million (£17 million), making it the sixth highest-earning song as of its era.

50% of the royalties were paid to King. [4] In 2015, King's original version was inducted into the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress, as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant", [5] just under five weeks before his death.

Later in the year, the 2015 lineup of the Drifters recorded it in tribute. There have been over 400 recorded versions of the song, performed by many artists, notably Otis Redding, John Lennon, Cassius Clay (later Muhammad Ali), [6] 4 the Cause, Tracy Chapman, musicians of the Playing for Change project, Florence and the Machine, and the Kingdom Choir.

King (pictured in 1990s) originally sang the song, becoming a hit in the US in 1961 and again in 1986. In 1960, Ben E. King was inspired to update the early 20th-century gospel hymn " Stand by Me" by Charles Albert Tindley, which was based around the psalm, "will not we fear, though the Earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea." [7] According to the documentary History of Rock 'n' Roll, King had no intention of recording the song himself.

[8] King had written it for the Drifters, who passed on recording it. After the " Spanish Harlem" recording session in 1960, King had some studio time left over. The session's producers, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, asked if he had any more songs. King played it on the piano for them. They liked it and called the studio musicians back in to stand by me it. Stoller recalls it differently: I remember arriving at our office as Jerry and Ben were working on lyrics for a new song.

King had the beginnings of a melody that he was singing a cappella. I went to the piano and worked up the harmonies, developing a bass pattern that became the signature of the song.

Ben and Jerry quickly finished the lyrics . [9] In another interview, Stoller said: Ben E. had the beginnings of a song—both words and music. He worked on the lyrics together with Jerry, and I added elements to the music, particularly the bass line. To some degree, it's based on a gospel song called "Lord Stand By Me".

I have a feeling that Jerry and Ben E. were inspired by it. Ben, of course, had a strong background in church music. He's a 50% writer on the song, and Jerry and I are 25% each. When I walked in, Jerry and Ben E. were working on the lyrics to a song. They were at an old oak desk we had in the office. Jerry was sitting behind it, and Benny was sitting on the top.

They looked up and said they were writing a song. I said, "Let me hear it.". Ben began to sing the song a cappella. I went over to the upright piano and found the chord changes behind the melody he was singing.

It was in the key of A. Then I created a bass line. Jerry said, "Man that's it!" We used my bass pattern for a starting point and, later, we used it as the basis for the string arrangement created by Stanley Applebaum. [10] The personnel on the song included Romeo Penque on sax, Ernie Hayes on piano, Al Caiola and Charles McCracken on guitars, Lloyd Trotman on double bass, Phil Kraus on percussion, and Gary Chester on drums, plus a wordless mixed chorus and strings. Songwriting credits on the single were shown as King and Elmo Glick—a pseudonym used by Leiber and Stoller.

King's record went to number 1 on the R&B charts [11] and was a Top Ten hit on the US charts twice—in its original release, entering the Billboard chart on May 13, 1961 [12] and peaking at number 4 on June 16, 1961, and a 1986 re-release coinciding with its use as the theme song for the film of the same name following its appearance in the film, when it peaked at number 9 on December 20, 1986 – January 3, 1987.

The song is also heard in the televised advertisement of Levi's 501 jeans. In the commercial, a man wearing a black denim jeans is able to enter a nightclub whose policy is "no blue jeans". [13] The song also reached number one on the UK Singles Chart in 1987 after its re-release, mostly because of the jeans commercial, originally reaching number 27 on its first UK release.

The song was not released on an album until it had been out as a single for two years. The song appeared on King's Don't Play That Song! album. The song was ranked 122nd on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. In 1999, BMI named it as the fourth most-performed song of the 20th century, with about seven million performances. [14] On March 27, 2012, the Songwriters Hall of Fame announced that the song would receive its 2012 Towering Song Award and that King would be honored with the 2012 Towering Performance Award for his recording of it.

[15] Smooth Radio in February 2019 called it one "of the best love songs of the 1960s". [16] Structure [ edit ] The song uses a version of the common chord progression now called the 50s progression, which has been called the "'Stand by Me' changes" after the song.

[17] Chart performance [ edit ] For the year-end charts in the US, the song was the number 63 song of 1961 [18] and number 67 of 1987.

• Adventure • Drama After the death of one of his friends, a writer recounts a childhood journey with his friends to find the body of a missing boy.

After the death of one of his friends, a writer recounts a childhood journey with his friends to find the body of a missing boy. After the death of one of his friends, a writer recounts a childhood journey with his friends to stand by me the body of a missing boy.

It's the summer of 1959 in Castlerock, Oregon and four 12 year-old boys - Gordie, Chris, Teddy and Vern - are fast friends. After learning of the general location of the body of a local boy who has been missing for several days, they set off into the woods to see it. Along the way, they learn about themselves, the meaning of friendship and the need to stand up for what is right. — garykmcd As a lover of Stephen King's writing style and Rob Reiner's directing techniques, this movie leaves me speechless every time.

It is an almost forgotten film about stand by me time and a youth nearly forgotten, as well. And I will say, as a writer, the novella that this film was based upon, "The Body" has and always will be the inspiration for my style of writing. First of all, I enjoy the title that was chosen for the film. "Stand By Me" fits what the characters in the story are facing. I think that all who have seen this film will agree that the problems are all things that we can relate to.

All of us know someone like these characters. Most of us have met the boy down the road who had a brother with a bad name and a father with an alcohol problem, automatically being labeled as a "bad kid." And the boy with the military father, abusive and a little whacko. The fat kid, picked on and ridiculed for his weight.

To me, Gordy represents all of us. I found myself seeing a little of me in Gordy as I watched the film. I don't know if any one else shares this, but it was true. Gordy was not very strong, at first, and was not sure what he wanted, except to be with his friends. Still coping with the loss of his brother and the fact that his father was disrespectful to him, Gordy still stood up for what he believed in. And, in the end he surprised the characters and the viewers by standing up to the bullies that had plagued them all.

This film is certainly one of my top favorites. In fact, it lies in my top three, probably at #2 or #3. I feel that it is a film that everyone should see at some point in their life due to the fact it changes your look at youth and their trials. Few films are able to do that and I think that this one was an inspiration for others that will do the same in the future. Directed by Rob Reiner . (directed by) Writing Credits Stephen King .

[Verse 2] If the sky stand by me we look upon Should tumble and fall Or 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 [Chorus] And darlin', darlin', stand by me Oh, stand by me Whoa, stand now Stand by me, stand by me [Interlude] [Chorus] Darlin', darlin', stand by me Oh, stand by me Oh, stand now Stand by me, stand by me Whenever you're in trouble, won't you stand by me?

Oh, stand by me Whoa, just stand now Oh, stand, stand by me by me How to Format Lyrics: • Type out all lyrics, even if it’s a chorus that’s repeated throughout the song • The Section Header button breaks up song sections. Highlight the text then click the link • Use Bold and Italics only to distinguish stand by me different singers in the same verse. • E.g. “Verse 1: Kanye West, Jay-Z, Both” • Capitalize each line • To move an annotation to different lyrics in the song, use the [.] menu to switch to referent editing mode 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 2012 it ranked as one of BMI’s top 5 most performed songs of the 20th century, with more than 11.6 million performances.

When it debuted in 1961, it reached the Billboards #1 position in “Hot R&B Singles.” Ben E. King first offered it to his group, The Drifters but was told – “Not a bad song, but we don’t need it.” Once solo – He and Jerry Lieber went to work – I showed him the song. Did it on piano a little bit, he called the musicians back into the studio, and we went ahead and recorded it. And the rest is history.
