¿Spanish Harlem,¿ (1960) and ¿Stand by Me,¿ (1961) Ben E. King (JL)

Leiber cowrote "Spanish Harlem" with Phil Spector, with a distinctive Latin flair in the seductive arrangement. "Stand By Me," a prayer that becomes a dramatic plea, cowritten by King with Leiber and Stoller. It inspired hundreds of covers by everyone from Muhammad Ali to John Lennon.
