The Righteous Brothers released the albums Some Blue-Eyed Soul in 1964 and This Is new! in 1965. Their album You’ve Lose That Lovin’ Feelin’ was released in 1965 and reached #3 on the US R&B chart and #4 on the US chart.

Bobby is also notable for his 1965 version of “Unchained Melody” which he performed solo, but is credited and was released as a Righteous Brothers song.

Bobby Hatfield passed away on November 5, 2003 at 63 years old. He was found in his hotel room in Kalamazoo, Michigan just hours before what was scheduled to be a Righteous Brothers concert. It was later discovered that Bobby suffered from advanced coronary disease and that he had a significant amount of blockage in the coronary arteries.

The Righteous Brothers’ music received unusually large boosts thanks to appearances in some classic films. In two cases, their songs became intricately connected to the movies. “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'” was a centerpiece in the 1986 movie “Top Gun” and “Unchained Melody” was featured prominently in the 1990 movie “Ghost”.
