MM: Ben by Michael Jackson

Did you know that Ben is a song written for a 1972 Horror Movie with the same name? Ben is actually a A killer rat. It is a sequel film of Willard, another horror film.
Check this video to find out who's Ben.


And now, here's my song entry for this Week. The film's title theme song, "Ben," performed by Michael Jackson, became a #1 pop hit single. Later included on Jackson's album of the same name, "Ben" won a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song. The song is calm and mellow, which actually contrasts with the horror content of the film.

    you're right...such a stak contrast to the actual movie, but maybe that's one of the reasons it became such a big hit
