“You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’” Performed by The Righteous Brothers (1965)

April 11, 2011


The Musical British Invasion of the USA was in full force in 1965.  Even though Motown’s Supremes’ “Come See About Me” had knocked The Beatles from the #1 spot in January — Britian’s Miss Petula Clark and her smash “Downtown” knocked the Supremes  from the number one spot and stayed there for the next two weeks (the weeks of Jan 23 & 30th)

In February the US came back to take the number one spot with a ballad by the fabulous duo of Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield from the Phil Spector musical camp –  known as The Righteous Brothers, their  performance of “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ became the new number one song on the Billboard Top 100 chart!

Not only was the Phil Spector  produced  “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’” the Righteous Brothers first number one hit, but it was Spector’s first ever British Number one.

This blue-eyed soul rendition of this beautiful ballad composed by the writing trio of Barry Mann, Phil Spector and Cynthia Weil also charted #3 R&B.

I remember vividly watching the fellas singing this on Shindig back in the day. What a beautiful song. Don’t you agree?

Musically Yours,
