The music in the 2020 Calvin Klein Eternity advert is a cover version of the 1965 hit song ‘Unchained Melody’ famously performed by the Righteous Brothers. The version in the advert is sung by Swedish singer Lykke Li
Unchained Melody was co-written in 1955 by Alex North (music) and Hy Zaret (lyrics) as a theme for a little-known prison film called Unchained. Many cover versions of the song have been recorded since including Elvis Presley, Jimmy Young, Robson & Jerome, Gareth Gates and more.
Perhaps the most famous version of Unchained Melody has to be by American musical duo The Righteous Brothers in 1965. This version was re-released in 1990 as the soundtrack for the blockbuster film ‘Ghost’. The re-released song reached number 1 in many countries including the UK, Austria, the Netherlands and Ireland.
