Abstract: We provide a criterion to determine whether a real multiplicative function is a strong Benford sequence. The criterion implies that the k-divisor functions, where k≠10j, and Hecke eigenvalues of newforms, such as Ramanujan tau function, are strong Benford. In contrast to earlier work, our approach is based on Halasz's Theorem.
