(You're My) Soul and Inspiration (The Righteous Brothers)

20 MAY 1966

The Righteous Brothers’ mighty ‘(You’re My) Soul and Inspiration’ was at its peak UK chart position of #15. The song had reached #1 in the US Billboard Hot 100 charts during the previous month, being their first major hit since leaving long-time producer Phil Spector. This was written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, who also penned 'You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin', their first #1 back in 1964.

The Righteous Brothers' chart career had been a roller-coaster ride of huge hits and disappointing flops, and this was to be their last entry in the US Top Ten of the 1960s (although they resurfaced with a #3 in 1974).
