Here’s a rather sublime tune for your bound-to-be-dreary Monday. John Lennon performing his version of Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me.”
“Stand By Me” was the only single released off Lennon’s Rock ‘n’ Roll L.P. of February, 1975 and made it to #20 on the US charts.
Lennon’s live performance below was specially recorded for the UK’s Old Grey Whistle Test TV show in ’75.
