Wedding Song Remake - Unchained Melody by Cyndi Lauper

Unchained Melody is arguably one of the most popular songs in history.  Unchained Melody was written in 1955 by Hy Zaret and put to music created by Alex North. Unchained Melody has become among the most recorded songs written in the 20th century and it is believed that there are approximately 500 different versions of this song to date. Interestingly,  the song does not actually include the word "unchained".

In 1965, The Righteous Brothers recorded a version of the song which resulted in it climbing as high as the number four spot in the music charts.  When Jerry Zucker was filming the movie, Ghost, in 1990, he used this version for the hot and heavy lovemaking scene between the movie's two co-stars, Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. The huge success of the movie, catapulted this popular version to the number one spot and made it very popular for use at weddings.

In 2003, Cyndi Lauper recorded an album consisting of cover versions of jazz standards which included  Unchained Melody. Cyndi Lauper interprets the melody and dynamics in such a way that make this version really shine. This is a great music choice for a Bride & Groom’s First Dance.

Unchained Melody

Whoa! My love, my darling,
I hunger for your touch,
Alone. 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.

Whoa! My love, my darling,
I hunger, hunger!, for your love,
For love. 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.
