You've Lost That Loving Feeling

Performed on the BBC Eammon Andrews Show in 1965. This recording of the Phil Spector song You've Lost That Loving Feeling reached Number Two in the UK singles charts, while the Righteous Brothers reached Number One. In a well-documented battle of the two recordings, Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham took out a full page advert in NME asking pop pickers to buy the Righteous Brothers version instead of the Cilla Black cover. Black has often stated that the superior version won in the end. George Martin: "Of course it was rather cheeky of us to re-record it... but it was such a good song".

(Note: Cilla re-recorded You've Lost That Loving Feeling exactly twenty years later on a piss-poorly produced studio album on the Towerbell label in her LWT days; over here at the Girl From Abbey Road site, we prefer not to think of it.)
