The Classics Never Die - The Righteous Brothers

in music •  last month

Well it's about time for me to do the next part in my series The Classics Never Die.
I hope everyone who has been following along with this series are enjoying the music I'm writing about. I do think I have great taste in music, so if you enjoy the classics your bound to enjoy the music in this series.

Just like all music though some of the older classics are shocking, there was a large number of failed artists who produced some shockers. But there is also a massive range of music which are classics, they sound amazing and can be enjoyed by by people of all ages and walks of life.
One thing I learned from my uncle was that if people judge you because you like music they don't, then they are not worth your time. Just because music is considered not cool, does not mean that I won't listen to it.

The classics never die, but they can be forgotten and sometimes your introduced to something you absolutely love.
I have had some interesting feed back in this series.
Here is some feedback I received from @mightpossibly

That's some nice songs!
I've never listened to a single David Bowie song before - these were some solid recommendations.

I have also received lots of great feed back, and interesting trivia from @mgood who is very knowledgeable on the classics I love.

The group, Dr Hook and the Medicine Show, wasn't very well known but they came out with a few hits.
I'm surprised they play their songs "down under".

So lets continue on with my series, I want to share another couple of my favorite tracks.

☠️ The Righteous Brothers ☠️

 
The Righteous Brothers are an American duo of singers. Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield.
They did most of their recording during the 60's and 70's.
Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield had contrasting voices which enabled the duo to produce a really great sound together.
In 1964 they had their first hit song which was called You've Lost that Loving Feeling. I think this was also their best song ever.

☠️ You've Lost that Loving Feeling ☠️

 
I really love this track by The Righteous Brothers.
Has to be their best track ever, the duo sounds fantastic together.

This recording is considered by various song writers to be one of the best records ever made. Although personally I think I would consider The Walker Brothers recording "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" to be the best recording ever. Although this track by The Righteous Brother comes in very close.

☠️ Georgia on my Mind ☠️

 
I really like this track from The Righteous Brothers too.
It has a really different feel to is, feels more like a mix between blues and soul. The piano sounds fantastic in this track I love it.

I'm really not sure if he is talking about a girl here, or the state of Georgia in the United States. I think he is talking about the state of Georgia, and it sure feels that way.
 

☠️ Unchained Melody ☠️

 
Now I could not do a post about The Righteous Brothers and not write about this track.
Many people have made fun of this track, well more so the movie Ghost which this song was used in. Wile I have got a good laugh with some of them I actually do enjoy this track.
I think it's an absolute classic.

I really like the lyrics, they are so passionate.
His voice sounds really amazing too.

He he nice. This is what I would call 'butter music'. Smooth men singing about love. Not exactly up my alley, but interesting to listen and read. And they indeed have great voices.

On another note, I feel bad for not following up on my initial excitement about this series. Life (and exercise in particular) has taken up so much of my time, that my feed has simply flown by for months.

Great post, keep it up!

Haha yeah it's kind of grown on me over the years I guess. They regularly get played on the Saturday night jukebox. At first I didn't like them much but they have grown on me :)

No worries m8 great to see your back, I have noticed you have been a bit quiet lately. It happens.

Righteous Brothers - a wonderful group. They specialized in singing, without special effects.
Unchained Melody - guys, the girls really love this song. Try it.

·

Excellent duo, I love some of their songs.
Haha the girls do llike that track, I really should watch ghost one day

I've seen parts of Ghost. The ending is a real tear-jerker.

Classics that accelerate the heart and give goosebumps, thank you for sharing these beautiful melodies of memory.

Yeah the classics are so powerful for invoking emotions. Glad you enjoy them :)

I am one of the lover of classical music. This music is favored by all music lovers. No one does not like classical music, the person who loves him has a good musical taste@thevillan

I just found this series and following you now! I love this post and you reminded me of my childhood. I listened to all kinds of music growing up and I loved the Righteous Brothers. A lot of kids thought I was weird because on my mixed tapes I would have something like this on it with something like LA Guns on it as well! I also, loved The Everly Brothers as well. So, thanks for this! I will definitely be reading more from you!

I love the Everly brothers also, great songs.
