"Unchained Melody" was originally written in 1955 as the theme for the little-known prison film 'Unchained'. It has since become a standard and one of the most recorded songs of the 20th century, most notably by the Righteous Brothers. Their version was released 1965 and peaked at no.5 globally in September of that year. It was re-released in 1990 after the Righteous Brothers' recording was used in the box office blockbuster film "Ghost", starring Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, and Whoopi Goldberg. Consequently the epic hymn reached the no.1 spot in United Kingdom, Australia, the Netherlands, Austria, New Zealand, and Ireland.
