Radio 66, side B, track 8: “Unchained Melody” by The Righteous Brothers

The Righteous Brothers - Unchained MelodyOh, The Righteous Brothers, I was so excited that I was able to record this song off the radio.  At the time, “Ghost” was the most romantic movie I’d ever seen and this was the most romantic song I’d ever heard.  I don’t know that I’d necessarily stand by those beliefs anymore since “Once” is obviously the most romantic movie ever made.  And while some of the luster has fallen away from this song over the years for me, and while it doesn’t quite twist my guts all in knots every time I hear it like it used to, it’s still a pretty incredible song.
