As discussed in this thread, "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" was replaced in Cheers season 7 by "Unchained Melody." Licensing rights, understandable.

So I just bought season 8, and what song appears in the very first episode? "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling."

Bizarre. Discuss.

I'd venture a guess that because "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" hasn't been used since the original airing, the DVD team & legal thought "Unchained Melody" was suppose to be in that episode. Had they known about the substitution, they probably would have corrected it. Especially because "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" is obviously not too expensive and may have actually been cheaper to secure given its subsequent use (i.e. they might not have charged full price both times).

Perhaps the budgets for each set are to blame. They may not have had the money to include the proper song on the previous set.
