Stand By Me

Contributed by Bert

A Must See!

This is very well done!

Below is a link to one of the best pieces of sound engineering work. It's a composite audio/video of song whereby additional tracks were laid in by different singers and musicians from different places around the world. The finished product is tremendous! The song itself is that classic standard "Stand By Me" originally released in 1955 by The Staple Singers and released again in 1961 by the Drifters.. So turn up the speaker volume and Click Here.

Beautiful, I love it.
I'm reminded of a lot of things - the Professor playing the drums in the subway in the movie, The Visitor; the blind beggars singing and playing the guitar along the sidewalk of EDSA leading to the GMA-Kamuning MRT station; and the old man who played kundiman songs in the piano at the Atrium of SM MegaMall. Suddenly a crowd surrounded and applauded him.
And he went on to play the piano as if he were performing in a concert,
and we continued applauding him after each piece..

Really, I love the music and the visuals. i'll surely play this again and again.

Hi Ed,

Thanks for sharing this. I love the song! The lyrics was just simply touching and very meaningful.

My belated Mother's Day greetings to Glo.

Take care and hugs too.

Hi Bert,

I enjoyed watching and listening to your five minute break. It's a masterpiece of some kind and made by a genius.

I still remember a time during our third year in DPS. I used to listen to our local radio at night. It's a program that played the top hits of the time. We happened to have one favorite singer. The singer was Jerry Vale. You still remember his voice?

I have a collection of old time favorites from time mags. It;s a compilation of top hits of the 60's and 70's in 2 CDs. The first song is "Stand by Me" by Benny King. I always carry it in my car as it is also the favorite song of my foster kid. Unfortunately my autistic foster kid could not talk. He use to hum it if ever I play the song.

Regards to you and your family. I always wish your family the best of everything.
