“Please Stand By Me” (copyrighted 1991) is not the first song I wrote, because I have been writing since early childhood, but it is the first song I wanted to share with others. It was written on my way to work during the Desert Storm War in 1991. I wrote it on a Thursday morning and KSEE24 asked that I have it ready for them by the following Monday. Since I do not sing or play a music instrument, I sang the song into a tape recorder for the musician to hear what I was hearing inside my head so instruments and vocals could be added to the song. KSEE24 then broadcasted the song on their 6:00 and 11:00 evening news after they added this video footage to the audio. By that Wednesday CNN picked up the song and video from them and took it around the globe. I did not know this until my nephew, who was stationed at an Air Force Base in England, heard it there. He was the first one to notify me that the song had went international. The Desert Storm War ended quickly and the song was put to rest. It is time to revive it. I hope you enjoy this song and support our military heroes who have unselfishly fought, sacrificed, and gave their lives for our country and our freedom. Technology has advanced a lot since 1991. This video was on a VHS tape and the song on a cassette tape that had to be updated into a current format for this webpage. This is the best quality we could get from these outdated tapes.
