Saw a billboard on I-44 the other day. Had Bill Medley on it. I guess he is doing all of his entertaining in Branson now. Bobby Hatfield has been gone for some time now. I liked their songs, Unchained Melody and You've lost that lovin feelin.. they did not have a whole lot of hits but, i thought they were good singers. Kind of like the Everly Brothers but, better singers in my opinion.

@Elmud,
The Righteous Brothers' version of Unchained Melody was a favorite ... until I heard Sam Cooke's version.

@Elmud,
I like a lot of Sam Cooke's music, but I have got to stay with Bill Medley. Of all that have rendered their version of this beautiful song which includes a whole slew of performers from Elvis to the Supremes and then some. Thanks Elmud for bringing this classic to our ears.

I like to play Unchained Melody on the guitar from time to time. Very easy song to play.

Eww, Branson. What an awful place.

Love the Righteous Brothers, though.

Yeah. Branson sucks. Unless you like billboards and dinner theaters. I thought i might want to explore working there awhile back but, when i visited, I found the traffic to be horrible. Lots of slow drivers sightseeing. Could not wait to get out of that place. I would have liked to see it though about sixty or seventy years ago before it was commercialized. Table Rock lake, the mountains and all the trees. I'll bet it was nice. Its shot now.

@Elmud,
Yep, that's such a pretty part of the country, but Branson city government, Wal-Mart, Tyson, they all want to see it paved over and turning a profit. Their values are backwards.

Ticks me off when people stereotype Ozark folks as backwards. Nah, they appreciate the beauty of their home. It's the slick suited carpetbaggers who are backwards, coming in to ruin the country for a few extra dollars. Those fools need to go back to Wall-Street.

Before I moved out here, about sixteen or so years ago, I thought about moving to Oregon. At that time, (I don't know how it is now,) Oregon was a slow growth no growth state. I took a drive to Oregon. Drove through Grants pass, Roseburg, Salem.
It was a beautiful place. Rained a lot but, beautiful. One thing that stood out to me was how clean everything seemed to be. Even the roadside rest areas. Spotless. I chose the Ozarks to move to because I had a friend who lived here. Sixteen years ago, it seemed to me to be just as beautiful as Oregon was. But, it is changing like everything else. The locals can tell you stories of how it use to be. I can go back sixteen years and look at it now and I can see the changes. Branson is a town of progress. Progress, is expensive.

Branson ain't progress - it's insanity.

Progress is insanity. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
