Fifty years and sixteen million YouTube views later...

This "Corner" post from Steyn cracked me up.

It also put me in mind of the time I was listening to Ben E. King's 1961 gem, "Stand By Me". Someone scoffed at my taste in music and told me condescendingly that "No one will be listening to this 25 years from now." Ironically, the year was 1986.

Well, another quarter century has passed since that day, and here we still are. "Stand By Me" is still one of my favorite songs.


  1. I'll bet this musical genius was a big fan of Milli Vanilli.

  2. I don't think said person had heard of them, either.

  3. Too busy trying to figure out which end was up on the map of Canada...
