Unchained MelodyUnchained Melody is one of the most recorded songs of the 20th century, by some counts having spawned over 500 versions.
Written for the 1955 prison film Unchained, the lyrics tell of a prisoner's anguish over his girlfriend. Les Baxter recorded it for the film's soundtrack, and it was very soon thereafter recorded by Al Hibbler. Perhaps the best known version is from 1965, credited to the Righteous Brothers but performed as a solo by Bobby Hatfield, who later recorded versions credited solely to himself.
