Today's Happy Hour Soundtrack: A Musical Point-Counterpoint

Otis Redding, with the point:

So darling, darling
Stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand, stand by me
Stand by me
Yeah, I know... Ben E. King's version is the one most people are familiar with, but I like Otis' version a lot better.  YMMV.

And The Clash, with the counter-point:

Did you stand by me
No, not at all
Did you stand by me
No way
I suppose this might could be a "Jane, you ignorant slut" kinda moment, eh?  Or not.  You decide.  Me?  I'm goin' back out to the verandah.  Beer me!


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
