The definitive version of 'Stand By Me '? I listen to John's and go "wow" and think thats it until i hear Ben E. King's and its "wow, no that's it" and the loop never finishes.

I remember Ben E. King joking in interviews, after it was a #1 in the UK in the '80s, that he kept being asked what it was like to have a hit with a John Lennon song.

Very interesting, Ron Nasty.  I'm sure the court was impressed by Dylan's presentable penmanship...a-hard-days-night-john-6

All seriousness aside (as Steve Allen used to say), the sentiments therein seem to me to be rather surprisingly trite and high school.

I suppose it's the bit that such letters were written as much to appear in Village Voice as they were in the FBI Copy of the Court Record.
