Unchained Melody by Todd Duncan (The Righteous Brothers version) is featured in Girls (and Boys) on Film, the fifteenth episode of Season Four. It is sung by Jake and Ryder.

Jake has Marley meet him in an art classroom, where he admits that Ryder came up with all the gifts on he gave her on Valentine's Day. He apologizes to her, telling her that all this is all new to him and he wanted to impress her. He reveals that he has come up with something on his own, revealing a pottery wheel behind him, and telling her that he's singing her favorite song from her favorite romantic movie to which she responds, "The Hunger Games?". He corrects himself, saying it's from her second favorite romantic movie and she laughs. Jake begins singing to her as they begin to recreate  the iconic scene from the movie, Ghost.

In the midst of the performance, Marley, guilt-ridden, has an out-of-body experience, watching in anguish as Ryder replaces Jake at the pottery wheel, singing to and kissing her. At the end of the song, as Jake attempts to kiss her, she stops him and confesses that she knew Ryder was behind the gifts, but she didn't care because it was so sweet that he tried. She reveals that she let Ryder kiss her, resulting in Jake quietly storming out of the classroom as she pleads for him not to go, leaving her in tears.


Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long lonely time

And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?

I need your love
I need your love
Godspeed your love to me

Jake with Ryder:
Lonely rivers flow
To the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea, yeah

Lonely rivers sigh
Wait for me, wait for me
I'll be coming home

Wait for me

Wait for me

Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered, hungered for your touch
A long lonely time

And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?

Jake (and Ryder):
I (need your love)

I, I need your love (Ryder: I need your love)
Godspeed your love (Ryder: Godspeed your love)
To (Ryder: To)

Jake and Ryder:




  • Throughout the song the piece of clay keeps changing forms - one moment it is forming a pot, the next it is less complete.
