Default Stand By Me

Hi all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is my FIRST EVER POST!!! Yay! Anywho, now on to the topic!

Um, Stand By Me is in my opinion John's greatest song(even though it's a cover) I haven't seen very many people who feel the same. Maybe, Im just crazy or something though( for all I know there could be a Stand By Me fan club). But anywho, I was just wondering if any of you folks like the song to! So, um, yeah! I'm gonna leave now.

I cant wait to post again! Well, um, goodbye then!

I absolutely love John's version of 'Stand By Me'...more than the original, even. The power in his voice makes me sing right along every time. [img]graemlins/teeth1.gif[/img]

Cool user name, by the way...

Yes, I love that song as well. John's vocal is so powerfull on that one, nicely arranged as well (I especially like the double guitared solo).

Hey there! I love "Stand By Me" too. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's my absolute favorite John song, but it's one of the ones I most enjoy. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Johns Stand By Me is a good number, but his best? I would not go that far. To each his own.

Perhaps I'd say it's his best cover as a solo artist (he really seems to give it his all), but I wouldn't say it's my favorite of all of his songs. I'm with the group that likes his version the best, tho'.

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">I think I may have to change my mind here. I have listened to the original at work many times now since hearing John's version. When I hear it, John's voice creeps into my mind, and I do beleive I like his better.

I love the original version of the song, as did John...when he visited, the oldies station was always on, and I can remember him singing along to this song at least once. His recorded version is tremendous; Rock N Roll is a wonderful album, John singing the songs he grew up loving.
A beautiful track!

Isn't it great how John and his bandmates re-crafted old American rock'n'roll standards, only to return them to us even better than the original versions? I think that's sooo cool..

Just a thought..

I'd say it's absolutely his best cover, and one of his best songs.
