An ode to "Ben", the seminal 1972 movie sequel masterpiece and it's wonderful, moving title track.
Ben, the leader of a colony of telepathic rats, is adopted, befriended and, essentially, loved, by a lonely boy named David.
The title song, performed by teenage sensation Michael Jackson, poignantly echoes the struggles so many of us experience in life and in love:
Ben, most people would turn you away
I don't listen to a word they say
They don't see you as I do
I wish they would try to
I'm sure they'd think again
If they had a friend like Ben
Join us to celebrate this oft forgotten classic of film and music.
