    I can't choose, I tried.
    Different parts of my life and two different interpretations.
    I loved them both for different reasons .

    Elvis All the way because when Elvis sings it you can feel the energy behind the lyrics/voice

    I voted for the Righteous Brothers. This a favourite because of the Ghost film. I haven't played this for a long time.
    There is no point in having a poll if you got to vote for Elvis everytime.
    I like Elvis's live version from the EAP Silver Box. This track sounded like they copied the track off a scratchy record at the end when the person was whistling.

    I chose Evis I meant Elvis , our guy always sing much better cover version to any songs (just my opinion ) .. my bf and I went to see Bill Medley last year,...and when he sang this song he dedicated it for Bobby,..

    Please now... just because the lyrics said " oh my love my darling I am hunger for your touch..." it doesnt mean that Bill was a lil fruity....

    I just thought it was thoughtful of him to dedicate the song for his friend/ co-singer in the group.

    While the Righteous Brothers version is a stunning example of pop proficiency and splendidly arranged, there is no competition for the sheer humanity which Elvis injects into his.

    I love both but something about E's has always given me more tingles.

    I have to agree. Both did a wonderful job of the song in their own right and it's very hard to choose but Elvis puts even more soul into the song than the Righteous Brothers.

    I tend to agree with both of you. Elvis' version really does seem to have all of his heart and soul into every line. However...if you are at a party or wedding reception, etc and the DJ plays the Righteous Brothers version....the dance floor quickly fills up.

    No doubt that Elvis' version is the most emotional and pesonal of the 2 versions; however, I just can't seem to get Patrick Swazey and Demi Moore and that particuliar steamy scene in the movie Ghost, out of my mind when I hear the original version!!!!!

    Yes...my point exactly. I took pottery in High School, we used the pottery wheel...I just don't remember any episodes to rival "Ghost". Maybe it's because our pottery teacher looked nothing like Patrick Swayze.

    The Righteous brothers for me their version is the best even better than Todd Duncan's original or Al Hibbler's hit version and all of the subsequent cover versions.

    I like Jimmy Young's No 1 version from the 50's too.
    I like originals versions of most songs.

    I like Elvis' versions of this song (particularly the "Moody Blue" version), but The Righteous Brothers have the definitive version.

    Yep, Elvis' version!
