Song Title 3 - Unchained Melody

There is another Chart Entry to this song that I feel should be added here. Itis a re-entry of the Righteous Brothers song into the UK Charts. It is UK 1-14 weeks (Oct. 1990) (currently #9 on Righteous Brothers page). +Your thoughts?+

That is a valid point, unfortunately the way the site is generated prevents us from making that kind of change
