This has not been liked much by viewers, with the result of 5 likes and 26 dislikes after 4200 views. It is certainly far from perfect but I didn’t and don’t have time to make really polished pieces.
One of the problems always in producing versions of songs that some people really like – and I really like the original of this song too, don’t get me wrong – is that you’ll find that people looking for the original on YT will come up against your cover and of course if they get that one before they get the one they remember, they’ll be frustrated and press the dislike button.
On top of that they might write some disparaging comments such as the few I got here. Some were positive because one or two liked the way I made a comedy ending.
Karaoke track of Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers
This is probably the most disliked-to-liked video in my whole history of fillummakering, and it is not hard to see why. The rendition is dire. There’s no other word for it. But this stays in as proof of my dogged determination not to flinch at criticism, but to let it happen!
This melody became famous because of the film “Ghost” but this version is much more eery and spooky than the one that Demi Moore is listening to when she makes her pot!

Soundtrack notes: “The Power of Love”, karaoke version mp3.
This is the video where, inspired by the Russian Proverb “Don’t have 100 roubles, but have 100 friends”, in order to get one hundred subscribers (which seemed a tall order at the time, but there are 32 times that number now!) Viktor dropped a hundred rouble note in the fish tank and the fish ate it. He then goes on to sing the Power of Love, but gets interrupted as ever by a phone call.
Unfortunately the voice was too loud for the microphone settings.
Now I like to think Huliganov.TV is a place people can come to get all the “insider secrets” on my films, and so here’s a couple for this film.
1. It was not 100 Russian roubles (worth about 4 dollars) it was 100 Belarusian roubles (worth a few cents) I put in the tank,
2. The fish didn’t actually consume the note, I fished it out again afterwards. This was just to prevent the printers inks from contaminating the water.
