"Ben, the two of us need look no more,
We both found what we were looking for,
With a friend to call my own,
I'll never be alone.
And you my friend will see,
You've got a friend in me."

1972 Ben

Don’s 1972 hit song ‘Ben’, performed by the late Michael Jackson was a great tear-jerker and consolidated Jackson’s emergence as the world’s darling. Jackson himself loved the song and has several times since said that ‘I used to say / I and me / Now it’s us / Now it’s we’ were his favourite lines from any of his songs. Although nominated for an Oscar, it was beaten by ‘The Poseidon Adventure’. Don’s reaction was characteristic. A shrug, a smile, and ‘Sod it. Put the kettle on.’
