It may come as a shock that The Righteous Brothers’ song “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’” is in the top three of most played songs in the world. In an article that came out a few years back, Time Magazine showed that the blue-eyed, soul-duo’s hit came second to, get this, fucking “It’s A Small World (After All)” — lol, what?
Also, In his book The Time of My Life: A Righteous Brother’s Memoir, Righteous Brother Bill Medley says the group got their name from black members in their audience that would say “that’s righteous, brothers!”
Besides coming in second to the song that plagued the nightmares of children for generations, and naming themselves after something someone shouted at them once, The Righteous Brothers and their music, are still obviously legendary and played an important role in shaping the future of American rock & roll.
