EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ – The Righteous Brothers

What was the number one song in the UK on 4th February 1965?

American duo, The Righteous Brothers hit the top spot for 2 weeks with You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’.

Many music critics have named this song the ultimate pop record or one of the best records ever made. The problem with songs like this is that you hear them time and time again that you almost become desensitised to their greatness. Imagine living in the 60s and hearing this song for the first time? It must have blown people away. Trying to listen to this song with fresh ears, I’m struck at how soulful the Righteous Brothers vocals sound and the desperation of the lyrics are expressed perfectly in their singing. This is a 10 out of 10 song really, isn’t it?

Lyrics

You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips
And there’s no tenderness like before in your fingertips
You’re trying hard not to show it
But baby, baby I know it
You lost that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’
You lost that lovin’ feelin’
Now it’s gone, gone, gone, woh
Now there’s no welcome look in your eyes when I reach for you
And now you’re starting to criticize little things I do
It makes me just feel like crying
‘Cause baby, something beautiful’s dyin’
You lost that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’
You lost that lovin’ feelin’
Now it’s gone, gone, gone, woh
Baby, baby, I’d get down on my knees for you
If you would only love me like you used to do, yeah
We had a love, a love, a love you don’t find everyday
So don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t let it slip away
Baby, baby, baby, baby
I beg you please, please, please, please
I need your love, need your love
I need your love, I need your love
So bring it on back, so bring it on back
Bring it on back, bring it on back
Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’
Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
‘Cause it’s gone, gone, gone
And I can’t go on, woh
Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’
Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
‘Cause it’s gone, gone, gone
