(December 22, 2015): Jackie DeShannon – What The World Needs Now Is Love

From the 1965, 7″ 45rpm single, What The World Needs Now Is Love / I Remember The Boy.  DeShannon’s recording of this Bacharach and David song rose to number seven in the U.S. charts and is a tune I can still recall hearing for the first time in the back seat of my parents’ 1963 red Pontiac Catalina convertible. Always apropos of this world, even if its sensibilities of the natural world seem quaint in an epoch increasingly called the Anthropocene.
