"Stand By Me" is a song by Oasis, written by lead guitarist, Noel Gallagher.
It was the second single to be released from the band's third album, and peaked at number two in the UK charts in September 1997. It was kept from the top-spot by the record breaking Elton John single "Candle in the Wind 1997", re-recorded and released in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, who had died three weeks before the release of "Stand By Me". Despite this, Stand By Me still went Gold in the UK. .
