Like Justin Bieber for seniors : )

So this puppy (Tessa) was dancing and playing around at my feet and I was afraid I was going to step on her so I was told to "Just pick her up". I picked her up. Everybody smiled and said "How Cute" and then they turned on the camera and the music and ...well, this is the result. Obviously it's virtually impossible to sing with her wriggling in my arms and licking me, but my family like this video because I'm smiling in it and other people like it because, well, because there's a puppy in it. Hmmmm?
If you would rather just hear me sing it, I have a puppy free version too, just let me know and I'll make it available. Darren


"Unchained Melody" was written in 1955 by Alex North and lyricist Hy Zaret. They were contracted to write a song as a theme for the obscure prison film "Unchained", and their song eventually became known as the "Unchained Melody". The song doesn't actually include the word "unchained". Songwriter Zaret chose instead to focus his lyrics on someone who pines for a lover he hasn't seen in a "long, lonely time". Todd Duncan sang the vocals for the film soundtrack. The 1955 film centers around a man who contemplates either escaping from prison, to live life on the run, or completing his sentence and returning to his wife and family. The lyrics note, "Lonely rivers sigh, ' Wait for me... I'll be coming home; wait for me'...". Unable to see them for years, he pleas, "I need your love, God speed your love to me". The song was nominated for an Oscar in 1955 but the Best-Song award went to the rival hit song "Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing."

Rerecorded again in 1965, this song eventually became one of the most recorded songs of the 20th century, by some counts having spawned over 500 versions in hundreds of different languages.

It was the July 1965 version by The Righteous Brothers that became a jukebox standard for the late 20th century, regaining massive popularity when used in the 1990 blockbuster film "Ghost", starring Patrick Swaze and Demi Moore.
Numerous other covers have been made by Ricky Nelson, Roy Orbison, The Supremes, Barry Manilow and even Elvis Presley performed "Unchained Melody" for what would be his last television appearance, "Elvis In Concert." However, the recording that was ultimately released as a single and included on the Moody Blue album (the last released while he was alive) was from an earlier appearance at Ann Arbor, Michigan, featuring him on piano, as was invariably the case when Presley sang the song in concert.

LYRICS

Oh my love my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh wait for me wait for me
I'll be coming home wait for me

Oh my love my darling
I've hungered hungered for your touch
A long lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me
