Bill MedleyThen:  Bill originally recorded this huge hit in 1965 (“You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling” – Righteous Brothers Hit Song) and in 1982 it became popular all over again when it was included in the Tom Cruise film “Top Gun”.  After surpassing The Beatles’ “Yesterday” it was certified by the BMI rights management agency as the most played record in the 20th Century.

According to BMI… This is how they determine the most played songs of a century. One (1) million continuous performances of a song (with an average length of 3 minutes is representative of 5.7 years) of continuous airplay.  In 1999 BMI affirmed the 8 million performances of “You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feeling” equaled more than forty-five (45) years of back-to-back play and awarded it as the most played song of the century. Imagine the number of other songs that were recorded from 1900 to 1999 and you will see the magnitude of this song recorded by Bill Medley back in 1965.

Bill Medley – a walk back and forward in time!

Now: What could be better than listening to three of my students singing together? It has always been an honor to work with the truly Righteous Brother, Bill Medley, but I also had the opportunity to work with singer and guitarist extraordinaire Bob Gulley in the late seventies – love the beard Bob! Bill’s daughter, McKenna has an amazing set of ‘vocal-pipes’ and instincts like none other. McKenna and I worked together on her voice from elementary school through high school. What a joy it is for me to watch these three singing together – I still can’t stop smiling.
