I have just learned that Ben E. King, best known for the 1961 anthem "Stand By Me," has died. I grew up listening to his greatest hits. That song is arguably the greatest song in American pop music. It wasn't even my favorite. That was "Spanish Harlem." I heard Mick Jagger say that Ben E. King was his favorite artist. I believe it. 76 seems too young for today. The news blurb said it was natural causes. I always find that morbidly funny as a Christian. There is nothing natural about death. I hope that he hoped in Our Lord, and that I'll see him in the glorious resurrection.
