An emotional performance of The Righteous Brothers – Unchained Melody will leave you speechless | Society Of Rock Videos

Oh, my love, my darling

I’ll never forget the first time I watched the movie “Ghost“. This song, Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, and the infamous pottery scene- is a memory in my mine that will stick forever.

It might possibly be one of the greatest love scenes of all time; “Unchained Melody” making it that much more powerful.

“Unchained Melody” was written in ’55, with music by Alex North and lyrics by Hy Zaret. North used the music as a theme for the little-known prison film, Unchained- hence the name.

Unchained Melody” has since become one of the most recorded songs of the 20th century. Including an incredible cover by The King, Elvis Presley.

The Righteous Brothers‘ track became a jukebox standard, achieving a second round of great popularity when it was featured in the 1990 blockbuster film Ghost.

Oh, my love, my darling
I’ve hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me
Lonely rivers flow
To the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh
“Wait for me, wait for me”
I’ll be coming home, wait for me

Oh, my love, my darling
I’ve hungered, for your touch
A long, lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me
Lonely mountains gaze
At the stars, at the stars
Waiting for the dawn of the day

All alone I gaze
At the stars, at the stars
Dreaming of my love far away

Oh, my love, my darling
I’ve hungered, for your touch
A long, lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me
