Unchained Melody was NOT written by William Stirrat an impostor of Hy Zaret
Unchained Melody was not written by William Stirrat who was an impostor of and NOT Hy Zaret and had nothing to do with writing Unchained Melody. This is apparently a blatant hoax and has been discredited. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Stirrat
Hy Zaret was/is Hy Zaret. Stirrat was an electrical engineer who became an impostor of HY Zaret. Stirrat filed a lot of copyright claims but didn't get around to filing one for "Unchained Melody" until 1982--27 years after the 1955 film "Unchained" and "Unchained Melody" hit the Billboard and Cashbox Charts and 26 years after "Unchained" had been nominated for an Oscar for Best Music, Original Song for "Unchained Melody"!
Stirrat talked to a reporter of a local newspaper who wrote a maudlin story about him and how he had written the lyrics to "Unchained Melody" back in 1936 when he was sixteen and smitten with a girl. (The absurdity that co-writer Alex North who would have been 26 then would have collaborated with a 16 year old high school student did not seem to occur to the reporter.) Apparently the reporter and newspaper did no checking of the claim but in 2003 just printed it as fact. "News Transcript" December 3, 2003. It was repeated again in Stirrat's obituary the following year and since then has been republished all over the internet (including IMDb's mini biography of Hy Zaret!) and is one of the most prevalent internet hoaxes.
This author attempted to submit a corrected biography to IMDb but it has gotten nowhere.
If anyone other than the real Zaret/North arguably deserve credit for contributing to this song it might be Phil Spector and Bobby Hatfield, producer and lead singer respectively of the 1965 Philles Righteous Brothers release.
