Paramount Home Entertainment Home Release Recommendation: "Ghost" from member Douglas Davidson.
Released in 1955, The Righteous Brothers’s classic tune “Unchained Melody” tells the story of one lover’s unending yearning for another. The music is soft, yet insistent, as the lyrics describe the relentless hunger for contact. By the time Jerry Zucker’s "Ghost" would release in 1990, “Unchained Melody” would already be a chart-topping song several times over in a variety of countries and yet, with its use in "Ghost," the song would become inextricably linked for the rest of cinema history. So great is their connection, so strong the audience’s reaction to Zucker’s supernatural romance, so timeless a story has it become that NBC comedy "Community" would later lampoon that connection with the creation of a “no Ghosting” rule in Season 1, Episode 19: “Beginner Pottery.” Whether you are among those who can hum that song while picturing Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore working a pottery wheel or among those who’ve never seen it, with the 30th anniversary edition release on the Paramount Presents label, you can take a journey where the line between this world and the next is connected by love anytime you like.
