What the World Needs Now Is Love, Sweet Love

What the World Needs Now Is Love, Sweet Love.

I absolutely LOVED this! I heard it on LA AM radio ALL the time! I listened to KRLA, KHJ (Boss Radio) and KFWB all the time! I LOVED this. EVERY time I heard it, I was so moved! I had NO idea SHE wrote it til recently!

Jackie DeShannon was a TRAGICALLY UNDERRATED songwriter and singer. 1965, heck, all the 1960s, esp with Brit Invasion 1962/63, music was AMAZING going into early 1970s!! You heard GREAT songs in EVERY genre, on your one fave station. BUT this should have been on top.

Tells ya many just thought this a sweet, sappy love song.

Her voice, the chorus, instrumentation, the worlds, the way it builds up, then a solo horn, just beautiful. Timeless classic.
