(You’re My) Soul And Inspiration By The Righteous Brothers

After The Righteous Brothers hits stopped for the Phillies label; owner and producer Phil Specter sold their contract to MGM for one-million dollars. Spector’s loss was MGM’s gain.

Their first hit for the label was a Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann composition “(You’re My) Soul And Inspiration. It was a song they had abandoned once as being second-rate. It would become the biggest hit of the duo’s career.

“(You’re My) Soul And Inspiration” became the number one song in the United States, April 9, 1966, and there it remained for three weeks.
