We’re starting the countdown now in the best way possible: with our favorite Righteous Brothers songs. Listen along!
More than 670 artists have released recordings of “Unchained Melody,” but the Righteous Brothers’ version will always take the cake. Since coming to fame in the film Ghost, it’s become a jukebox staple all over the world.
“You've Lost that Lovin Feelin’”
This 1964 hit was co-written by Phil Spector and was one of the first tracks to showcase the ‘Wall of Sound’ recording method. A #1 Hit Single in both the U.S. and U.K., “You've Lost that Lovin Feelin’” was ranked the most-played song of the twentieth century.
“Just Once in My Life”
Carole King and Phil Spector teamed up to write this 1965 hit, which soared to the #9 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. A decade later, “Just Once in My Life” was even covered by the Beach Boys.
“Rock and Roll Heaven”
The Righteous Brothers recorded this tribute in 1974. Though the track marked a departure from the duo’s classic sound, it became a near-instant global hit. “Rock and Roll Heaven” pays homage to Janis Joplin, Jim Croce, Otis Redding, Jimi Hendrix, Bobby Darin, and other greats.
“Little Latin Lupe Lu”
Bill Medley penned this 1963 hit in honor of Lupa Laguna, a girl he used to date in high school. The song started out as a joke and grew to be one of the best soul hits of the century.
The roots of “blue-eyed” soul are coming to the Willamette Valley, and you can join us for the show. Tickets are on sale now and start at $20. Buy yours today to see the anticipated revival of the Righteous Brothers, live at Spirit Mountain Casino.
