„What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
It's the only thing that there's just too little of.
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No not just for some but for everyone.“
— Jackie DeShannon
"What the World Needs Now is Love" (1965); this song was actually written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David and offered to other singers who initially passed it up. It became DeShannon's first number one hit.
