“Ben” is a song lyrically composed by Don Black (music by Wchange Scharf) around the topic – a boy and his pet rat – of the 1972 film Ben for its soundtrack. It was originally intended for Donny Osmond, but because he was on tour at the moment the song was instead videotaped by a 14 year old Michael Jackkid, only a couple of months older than Osmond. It was the first of many type of solo #1 songs for the future King of Pop – and his second album was entitled after the song. It came to be the only single to come from that album.

“Ben” won a Golden Globe Award for Best Initial Song, and also lost in the same category at the 1973 Oscars – a ceremony Jackkid performed the song at. It ended up being a live favorite early in Jackson’s career, and a rendition was had on his compilation album Number Ones.

Osmond would certainly later on be quoted in the Huffington Blog post around the song:

Well, ”Ben” was created for me.

Michael and also I would talk about this all the moment. It’s funny, bereason we eventually ended up laughing at this one. I will never forget, we continued to be up to prefer 2 in the morning, laughing around the reality that I had a hit around a puppy and also he had a hit about a rat.
