#musicamonday #MUSICMONDAY (57)

Welcome to the 57th installation of #musicamondays #MusicMondays, which features music from around the globe. Each song is selected to start your week off on the good foot! One still in the bed and the other in another country…


Ben E. King hails from North Carolina, but was laid to rest in the great state of New Jersey in 2015, so I’m claiming him as our own. The soul crooner was a member of The Drifters before going solo in the 60s and is most famous for co-composing the song “Stand by Me.”

In any case, be prepared to get down with your funky self and have a great week ahead!
