For the record, the Ben E King song is credited to Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller as well as King. It's quite a song. Some 200 cover versions to date and rising. It also inspired a magnificent soundtrack - and provided the title - when Rob Reiner made a film based on Stephen King's short story, The Body.
