Alex North (born Isadore Soifer in 1910) was an American composer best known for his film scores. Unchained Melody was the theme song for a little-known prison film called Unchained. And we know it best as a signature song for the Righteous Brothers. ( And also in the movie Ghost starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. Tear jerker!)
I chose this song because it was released in 1955, the year I was born and this week would have been my birthday. EXCEPT my youngest daughter, Aubre, was born on my 24th birthday so she took my special day from me. It is great being “24” and having a 41-year-old daughter!!!!
