I Woke Up Like This: The Righteous Brothers – “Unchained Melody”

I believe this song was used in the most recent episode of The Simpsons and that’s how it ended up stuck in my head. I did also begin watching Ghost a couple of months ago, but I jumped to when Whoopi Goldberg could hear Patrick Swayze, which, surprisingly, is something like 40 minutes into the movie. I fell asleep before he enters her body and this song starts playing, though. I was also surprised to read that one of The Righteous Brothers died from a cocaine induced heart attack. Not something I was expecting to find out when researching a group described as “blue-eyed soul”.
