They weren’t brothers, but bass-baritone Bill Medley (1940- ) and tenor Bobby Hatfield (1940-2003) found success in 1964 after collaborating with producer Phil Spector. Their break-out single, “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’,” was quickly followed by other Spector-driven hits including “Unchained Melody.” The duo broke up in 1968, but reunited in 1974 and then again in 1981 until Hatfield’s death in 2003. Their evocative songs are often referred to as “blue-eyed soul.”
