THE RIGHTEOUS BROTHERS’
Friday, May 23, 2014 at 8 p.m.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Bill Medley is a monumental figure in American music, best known as half of the legendary duo, the Righteous Brothers. Combining Medley’s unmistakable baritone with Bobby Hatfield’s forceful tenor and the density of Phil Spector’s “wall of sound” production, the Righteous Brothers defied traditional music labels with airplay on both pop and R&B radio stations. In the mid-’60s, they became a fixture on top 40 radio with hits like “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin,’” “Just Once in My Life,” “Unchained Melody,” and “(You’re My) Soul and Inspiration.” BMI ranked “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’” as receiving more television and radio airplay than any other song in history. In 1987, Medley scored a monumental hit with another duettist, Jennifer Warnes, with “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life,” for the film, Dirty Dancing. The song earned an Oscar, a Golden Globe, Video of the Year, and a Grammy.
