« Stand by Me » de Ben E. King repris par Imagine Dragons aux Billboard Music Awards

Imagine Dragons Stand By Me 2015 Billboard Music Awards

A l’occasion de la cérémonie des Billboard Music Awards qui a eu lieu le 17 mai 2015 (où Sam Smith et Taylor Swift mais aussi Hozier ont triomphé), les Imagine Dragons ont rendu un très bel hommage à Ben E. King, chanteur disparu (à l’âge de 76 ans) à la fin du mois d’avril dernier. Le groupe de rock américain a effectué une sublime reprise en version acoustique de la chanson la plus célèbre de Benjamin Earl Nelson, Stand By Me (sortie en 1962 et issue de l’album Don’t Play That Song !).

La chanson originale

Les paroles de la chanson

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No I won’t be afraid
Oh, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
 
So darling, darling
Stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand, stand by me
Stand by me
 
If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
All the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry
No, I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
 
And darling, darling
Stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand now, stand by me
Stand by me
 
So darling, darling
Stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand now, stand by me, stand by me
Whenever you’re in trouble won’t you stand by me
Oh stand by me, oh won’t you stand now, stand
Stand by me
