“Unchained Melody” is a 1955 song with music by Alex North and lyrics by Hy Zaret.It has since become one of the most recorded songs of the 20th century. The title is the result of the music serving as a theme for the little-known prison film Unchained. In 1955, three versions of the song (Les Baxter, Al Hibbler, Roy Hamilton) charted in the Billboard Top 10 in the United States. Ten years later the Righteous Brothers version topped out at #4. There is also a version by Duane Eddy.
