Brook Benton (born Benjamin Franklin Peay; September 19, 1931 – April 9, 1988) was an American singer and songwriter who was popular with rock and roll, rhythm and blues, and pop music audiences during the late 1950s and early 1960s, with hits such as "It's Just a Matter of Time" and "Endlessly", many of which he co-wrote. He made a comeback in 1970 with the ballad "Rainy Night in Georgia. Benton scored over 50 Billboard chart hits as an artist, and also wrote hits for other performers.
Brook Benton, Belford Hendricks and Clyde Otis established themselves as a songwriting team in the late 1950s, penning hits for Nat King Cole ( Looking Back ) and Clyde McPhatter ( A Lover’s Question ). During one songwriting session, Benton expressed frustration that they were not hitting on any good ideas, to which Otis replied, It’s just a matter of time, Brook. Those words inspired them to write a love song from the point of view of a man who misses his love, but believes she will come back to him. The song featured in the film Boogie Nights
