"Ben" is a song written by Don Black and Walter Scharf and recorded by Michael Jackson for the Motown label in 1972. The theme song of 1972 the horror film Ben, it is a melancholy ballad to the film's title character, a killer rat – a choice critics have noted as singularly odd. It was initially released as a single, and later appeared as the title track to Ben, Jackson's second solo album. The song was Jackson's first number-one hit as a solo artist on the American pop charts, and also performed well overseas, reaching number one in Australia and number seven in the United Kingdom. Cover versions were later recorded by Marti Webb and Akon, and the original featured in the 2003 film Willard, a remake of the film to which Ben was a sequel. "Ben" won a Golden Globe for Best Song. It was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1973; Jackson performed the song in front of a live audience at the ceremony.
