"Ben" is a song written by Don Black and composed by Walter Scharf for the 1972 film of the same name (the sequel to the 1971 killer rat film Willard). It was performed in the film by Lee Montgomery and by Michael Jackson over the closing credits. Jackson's single, recorded for the Motown label in 1972, spent one week at the top of the U.S. pop chart. Billboard ranked it as the No. 20 song for 1972. It also reached number-one on the Australian pop chart, spending eight weeks at the top spot. The song also later reached a peak of number seven on the British pop chart.
"Ben" won a Golden Globe for Best Song. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1973, losing to " The Morning After" from The Poseidon Adventure; Jackson performed the song in front of a live audience at the ceremony. The song was Jackson's first U.S. #1 solo hit.
Ben is frequently used as a shortened version of the given name Benjamin (as well as Benedict, Bengt, Bennett, Benoit, Benvolio, or Ebenezer, among other names).
Ben (in , Son of) forms part of surnames, e.g. Abraham ben Abraham . Bar-, "son of" in Aramaic, is also seen, e.g. Simon bar Kokhba . The Arabic "Bin" (بن) or "Ibn" (ابن), also meaning "son of" is an obvious cognate.
Ben is the second studio album by Michael Jackson, released by Motown Records on August 4, 1972, while Jackson was still a member of The Jackson 5. The album received mixed reviews from contemporary music critics. Ben was more successful on music charts than Jackson's previous studio album, having charted within the top ten on the Billboard 200. Internationally, the album was less successful, peaking at number twelve in Canada, while charting within the top 200 positions in Australia and France.
Worldwide, Ben has sold a reported 5 million units. The album released one single, the title track "Ben", which was a commercial success on music charts, topping both the US Billboard Hot 100 and the Australian ARIA charts, giving Jackson his first number-one single, domestically and internationally. "Ben" also charted within the top ten in other territories worldwide. "Everybody's Somebody's Fool" was planned to be released as the second single from the album, but canceled for unspecified reasons. Two of the album's songs were "stripped" in 2009 as part of the three-disc compilation Hello World: The Motown Solo Collection.
His greatest success was 2002 with the hit single "Engel", a collaboration with singer Gim. He was also successful as TV presenter of the music show The Dome ( RTL II), Toggo Music ( Super RTL) and Bravo TV ( Pro 7).
He was the narrator in the German version of the 2006 Canadian-French animal film La Planète blanche (Der weisse Planet).
Ben is a given name, either as a formal name in its own right, or as a shortened version of various given names.
Ben may also refer to:
The Hebrew word Ben, meaning "son" forms part of many surnames in Hebrew. In the English Bible, such names include:
- Ben-ammi, "son of my people."
- Benaiah, "son of Yah."
- Bene-berak, "sons of lightning."
- Ben-hadad, "son of Hadad."
- Ben-hail, "son of valor."
- Benjamin, "son of the right hand" or "son of the south."
- Ben-oni, "son of my sorrow."
- Ben-Zion, "son of Zion."
Ben is a Canadian comic strip syndicated by MWAM and available on GoComics that is also included in American and other English-speaking newspapers. There is also a French version that is likewise growing in popularity. It is the creation of artist and author Daniel Shelton.
"BEN" ("Better Everything Now") is a hip hop song written by rapper, producer, and director Adair Lion (Adair Fragoso), a native of El Paso, Texas. The song samples Michael Jackson's 1972 song of the same name and gives a pro- LGBT message. One report described it as a message to the rap world, and a stance against gay discrimination. Towleroad called it a "beautifully-spun message about doing away with homophobia in hip-hop and Christianity, and accepting gay parents." Originally to be titled "It Gets Benner", in homage to the It Gets Better Project, Lion decided to use "Ben" with the name also serving as an acronym for "Better Everything Now."
The single is a part of Lion's forthcoming album Michael & Me to be released June 25, the anniversary of the death of Michael Jackson. Lion's intention was to bring focus to how homophobic expressions, common in the hip-hop community, are part of a larger problem, and that leading voices of hip hop shouldn't turn their backs on their LGBT friends and family. One of the often quoted lyrics is "'Gay is OK' may be the No. 1 thing a rapper shouldn't say."
Equality Texas named Lion an Ally Award winner, recognizing people and businesses that advanced " equality for all Texans", as well as 'Miss West Texas' Kaylee Anne Keith, his fiancee, who took her platform of “bullying awareness and prevention” to schools across the state.
The popular culture reaction to "BEN" has been surprisingly supportive in the traditionally and notoriously homophobic hip-hop music industry, which, for example, uses " no homo" in lyrics. "BEN" went viral, racking up "tens of thousands of hits" on YouTube, and Lion's songs have increased exposure on "taste-making radio stations and websites." Lion is also doing more live shows including gay pride festivals in Memphis ( Mid-South Pride) and his hometown of El Paso.
Ben is the ninth album by Brazilian artist Jorge Ben, released in 1972. The album has one of Jorge Ben's most famous songs, "Taj Mahal", and "Fio Maravilha", paying homage to Flamengo's iconic striker Fio Maravilha. A copyright infringement lawsuit by Jorge Ben claimed Rod Stewart's song Da Ya Think I'm Sexy? had been derived from "Taj Mahal". The case was "settled amicably" according to Jorge Ben Jor. Stewart admits "unconscious plagiarism" of Ben's tune in his 2012 autobiography.
Lee Eun-young (; born July 30, 1991), better known by her stage name Ben , is a South Korean singer. She was a member of South Korean band Bebe Mignon from 2010 to 2011, a group which was often referred to as the female 4Men.

HOUSE When Israel had been some twenty years at Tetuan, Naomi being then fourteen years of age, Ben Aboo, the Basha, married a Christian wife.
Ben Aboo, their Basha, was a good, humane man, who was often driven to do that which his soul abhorred.
And with Ben Aboo himself he had fared no better, for the Basha was provoked to anger with him when he heard from Katrina of the good money that he had been casting away in pity for the poor.
Saying this, he made a downward sweep of his open hand over the place where the Basha lay, and Ben Aboo shrank under it as a worm shrinks under a blow.
