Stand by me!



That's a worldwide song: people sing it around the world. The song is inspired by a traditional Gospel song. There have been many versions of it but the most famous is John Lennon's version recorded in 1975 for his album Rock'n'roll. Today I've discovered that the song called "Beautiful Girls" by Sean Kingston has closely resembles parts of the violin solo from the original song. However, if you listen this song you would think that they are completely different.
This video is an editing of singers who play in the street. It belongs to a project called "Playing for change" and it's becoming very famous.
I think it's moving to see it.

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we see
No I won't be afraid
No I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And darling, darling stand by me
Oh, now, now, stand by me
Stand by me, stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
And the mountain 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

And darling, darling stand by me
Oh, stand by me
Stand by me, stand by me, stand by me

Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me
Oh, now, now, stand by me
Oh, stand by me, stand by me, stand by me

Darling, darling stand by me
Stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me, stand by me

Good songs don’t notice the pass of time. Like wine, the years make them better in my opinion. Thanks for you comments on my blog. I follow your one, as well. Happy new year to everybody!!!
