This is one of those soundtracks that may have worked better during the vinyl era. Most of the tunes here (each and every one a '50s rock classic) are likely already in the CD collections of fans of this kind of music. That's probably the case with Buddy Holly, Ben E. King, the Del Vikings (two cuts here), the Coasters, Jerry Lee Lewis, and perhaps Shirley & Lee. It's probably not true of the Chordettes' "Lollipop," but that tune is used to such great effect in this terrific flick that you may just want to watch the video again. You can't go wrong with 10 feel-good classics. --Bill Holdship

"Since the movie is so wonderful and touching, the soundtrack is a good CD to go with the collection. For "Stand By Me" fans or fans of 50s music, this CD is an excellent choice. Stand By Me by Ben E King is a classic."
A spectacular sountrack for a spectacular film!!!!

"Stand By Me is one of those films that if you were born in the late seventies early eighties, like I, you loved to watch simply because it was a coming-of-age film that we could relate to. I was born in 1980, so I would always see the film on television on the weekends. Rob Reiner created a masterpiece and the songs picked for the film are treasures that evoke that sense of nostalgia that movie fans long for. The soundtrack is wonderful. "Ben King's Stand by Me" is powerful when played in the end as the credits role. Perhaps no eyes are dry in that incredible moment. I know mine aren't."
