Ben E King 80s

Ben E. King – Stand By Me

Day 3 of re-releases week is this Ben E. King classic. It originally reached UK#27 and US#4 in ’61.

It was back, though,  in the 80s, all the way to US#9, and UK#1. where it stayed for 3 weeks, and it was down to #58 on this day in the 80s.

This was the biggest of 6 UK hits for Ben, which were all in either ’61 or ’87, and the biggest of 22 US hits from ’60-’87.
