The Righteous Brothers “For Your Love”

The Righteous Brothers were originally an American musical duo of Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield. They began performing together in 1962 in the Los Angeles area as part of a five-member group called the Paramours, but adopted the name “The Righteous Brothers” when they embarked on their recording career as a duo.

Their most active recording period was in the 1960s and 70s, and although the duo was inactive for some years, Hatfield and Medley reunited in 1981 and continued to perform until Hatfield’s death in 2003. Their emotive vocal style is sometimes dubbed “blue-eyed soul”.

“For Your Love” is a song written and performed by Ed Townsend. It reached #7 on the US R&B chart and #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1958 and in 1965 the Righteous Brothers released their own version.

  1. Great song, great harmonies. I’ll always remember them for ‘You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling’ which you’ve already posted. But that scene in Top Gun??!! Fabulous. Lovely post, again 😀😀

    1. Phenomenal Oaks are what they have been! They take us on a profound journey with their music, no doubt! Cheers!💕💕

  2. Nils Lofgren did an amazing version
    of this song. It’s one of the best hard
    driving guitar covers I’ve ever heard 🎸
