the_righteous_brothers_-_youve_lost_that_lovin_feelin#10 – The Righteous Brothers – “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'” – (1965)

It’s pretty incredible how low the opening lines of “You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips” actually are. Co-written by Phil Spector, this is one of the greatest love songs ever recorded. Used spectacularly in Top Gun, the song has remained quite famous since its release as a single in late 1964 (the album came out the next year). It was a #1 in the U.S. and the U.K. It was a top ten hit in the U.K. again in 1969 and cracked the top 50 again in 1977. That’s  some serious staying power for two serious vocalists.
