If you want to hear one of the best renditions of “Unchained Melody” ever performed, you are in the right place. In the town of Bremen, Germany, several separate orchestras came together to deliver a magnificent performance of the popular tune. If you’re unfamiliar with this song by name, you will certainly remember it from the iconic scene in “Ghost” when Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore work on pottery together – the original song was performed by the Righteous Brothers and set the stage for romance in the scene.

Now, this orchestral performance of “Unchained Melody” has given the song a life outside of the popular film. Because these orchestras joined forces to perform the tune, they were able to create a video that has since gone viral millions of times over. Uploaded back in 2009, the video has been viewed a staggering 11.1 million times at the time of this writing.

According to the video description, this performance was recorded in 2002 in Bremen. The performance included several national orchestras from across Germany to play the song together. Each orchestra gets its moment to shine, and so do many of the individual performers.

Thousands of other viewers shared comments about the performance. The following were popular comments from viewers across the globe.

“Military orchestras are so beautiful! If one day humanity doesn’t need armies anymore, I hope these orchestras won’t cease to exist with them.”

“Amazing how so many people from so many (places) can come together in peace and harmony through music.

I just wish there was a way we could distribute that language of music to the rest of the world so that we could all live in peace and harmony with each other.”

“I’m 69 years old, I’m French, and I listened to this beautiful melody on Friday, November 22, 2019. I greet all the people who listen to this melody. Music unites all men regardless of their country.”

“I served my country for 21 years, so seeing so many uniformed band members performing such a beautiful melody so wonderfully brings a tear to my eye. While the policy may not always be so pleasing, music will always be a bridge between all who have an ear to listen. One verse I always remember; Make a joyful noise unto the Lord all ye lands. I think in this case is quite fitting.”

“I am a 67 years old retired professor in Taiwan listening to it on August 29, 2019, with the deepest admiration–Love conquers the world with such kind of pious and devoted performance! Thanks for sharing!”

“Amazing how so many people from so many countries can come together in peace and harmony through music.
