The Righteous Brothers is an American musical duo composed of Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield. They recorded records between 1963 and 1975, and sang live until Bobby Hatfield's death in 2003. They owe their name to an African-American marine who shouted at the end of a concert: " That was righteous, brothers ! " (" It was great, guys ! ). Their first single, You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin', was released in 1965. It was a great success for the time, despite a duration that exceeded the standard for radios.
