The Righteous Brothers – “Soul and Inspiration” Throw Back Thursday (on a Friday) SOTD

The Righteous BrothersJust look at that picture….. there is nothing remotely close that screams The Wonder Bread that is going on there…

such good role models…such nice boys….

And fucking awesome…..

When I was a kid, my family and I used to go on long car trips to the countryside of Northeast Ohio. We would drive the two lane back roads and find whatever dive restaurants were on the way, eat their greasy shit, and stop at garage sales and whatever…. My memory tells me it was awful, but I went and it most likely fueled my love of driving roads that go nowhere and the constant wandering that has come to me as an adult.

My dad had a cassette tape in his Cadillac…. Hit’s of the 60’s… with the Temptations, Four Tops, and Supremes on it, among others. They were my first foray into music and, while I love Motown, the song that sticks in my brain the most from that tape, was The Righteous Brothers and the blue-eyed soul of their lovelorn hit “Soul and Inspiration”.

Now…. I realize that this is a rock n’ roll zine, but The Righteous Brothers were pretty fucking righteous…. And “Soul and Inspiration” is enough to at least showcase the amazing sound that Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield had together….. I mean…. look at that photo and watch the video below…. Baller……..

Cheers….
