The song our world needs to embrace today…

My friends, this is one of the most beautiful, and recent, renditions of a song I think our world needs to take to heart right now:  “What the World Needs Now Is Love.”

I urge you to take these lyrics to heart and work to realize this philosophy in your “sphere of influence.” Kinder reactions. More compliments. Longer hugs. Random acts of goodness… Sharing Love in all the ways you can, will help all of us.

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.

Lord, we don’t need another mountain,
There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb
There are oceans and rivers enough to cross,
Enough to last till the end of time.

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.

Lord, we don’t need another meadow
There are cornfields and wheat fields enough to grow
There are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine
Oh listen, lord, if you want to know.

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.

No, not just for some, oh, but just for everyone.

Some background: The 1965 song—with its brilliant, simple lyrics by Hal David and music composed by one of my all-time favorite composers, Burt Bacharach— was first recorded and made popular by Jackie DeShannon. It peaked at number seven on the US Hot 100 charts in July of 1965, and reached number one in Canada.

If you’re of a certain age, you may be familiar with the original, or the version done by Dione Warwick in 1966, or maybe one of the other one hundred recordings by other artists.

How do you plan to share Love today?
