"You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" has been played more times on radio and television than any song in the recorded history of music. It was a brilliant song co-written by Phil Spector, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, but the Righteous Brothers' performance all but assured its place in historic annals. Bill Medley's booming resonant bass vocal punched you in the gut like a fist, and though Tom Cruise tried to replicate the performance in Top Gun, he wasn't even close.

Here the former Righteous Brother talks about that song and his life in music. His modest beginnings as the son of musicians in Orange County, CA ultimately blossomed into a career where he would perform with The Beatles and the Rolling Stones and enjoy a renaissance when he paired with Jennifer Warnes on "(I've Had) the Time of My Life" in the Dirty Dancing movie. Along the way there were also bad times, including the death of his longtime partner Bobby Hatfield and the unsolved and brutal murder of his first wife.

There are interviews here and comments from friends, associates and family. Medley has earned his place in the history of music, and reading this will help you understand why.
