"I'll Stand By You" | The Pretenders | Live

"I'll Stand by You" is a 1994 song recorded by The Pretenders from their sixth studio album, Last of the Independents. Written by Chrissie Hynde in collaboration with the songwriting team of Tom Kelly and Billy Steinberg (who used the melody from Johann Sebastian Bach's Minuet for Lovers, it was the Pretenders' most recent significant hit single, and their last successful single in North America.

The song is a power ballad that pledges love and faithful assistance in times of personal darkness.

There's more than a movie theme song to it but you know that already so, all in all this evening, I'm not staying too far ahead of your game.  There's no room for lofty in that but, you know that one too ... the Dude abides.
