I've been a little slack on the blog front of late due to a heavy workload but here is a new Song of the Week. I was initially going to pick the song for which the Fleetwoods are most known "Come Softly to Me" until I discovered their incredible version of "Unchained Melody." Thanks to the likes of Simon Cowell, Robson & Jerome, etc this song is so saturated with the association of unbearable cheese and melodrama which is exactly the reason why I was so staggered by the Fleetwoods' rendition. Stripped back and beautiful a capella it eradicates all those other bad associations instantly.
