Unchained Melody - The Righteous Brothers

Why is the melody unchained? "Unchained Melody" was originally written for the 1955 movie "Unchained" about prison inmates finishing out their sentences and hoping their loved ones on the outside were still waiting for them. Rendered sizzling hot and sensual by Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in the movie "Ghost", "Unchained Melody" is a steamy choice whether you own a potter's wheel or not.
