If I was born 25 or 30 years before my actual birth, Dionne Warwick would have been my fave growing up in the 60's.



After yesterday's tragic event in Charlottesville, VA is there more appropriate time for these lyrics & this angelic voice of this healing song.

I was 4 when that came out. My parents must have been divorcing around that time.

Lyrics by Hal David
Music by Burt Bacharach

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 until the end of time

What the world needs now is love sweet love,
It's the only thing that theres just too little of,
What the world needs now is love sweet love,
No not just for some but for everyone

Lord, we dont need another meadow,
There are corn fields 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 theres just too little of.
What the world needs now is love sweet love,
No not just for some, oh but just for every every everyone.

what the world (whoa whoa) needs now,
Is love (is love) sweet love
What the world ( oh oh) needs now
Is love (is love) sweet love
What the world (whoa whoa) needs now
Is love (is love) sweet love

If you like it so much, you could give the 2 writers some love. I mean she did originally turn it down, and changed her mind after someone else sang it.

Came out in '65....Dionne didn't want it. Even the melody writer(Burt Bacharach) didn't trust his own baby. I guess the above singer loved it.

Burt Bachurach? The white guy playing the Piano? He wrote a lot of songs of that era for soul artist, I'm not sure if he was connected to Motown.

I was gonna mention his name in the title, but too many characters.

Music by Burt Bacharach

Burt Bacharach was (still is alive, on fumes) a great songwriter, and producer.

These people would be surprised how many of their beloved songs were written by this artist. Almost all Dionne's hits.



^^ Burt Bacharach/ Hal David

Luther's Version was much better to me...



But then again they are completely different interpretations in production..

Yes "put a little love in your heart"

Pretty Cheesy , but somehow it did well.

I didn't think Dionne was the original version of that song, but a friend posted it on FB after what happen yesterday, & I just walked rite into it thinking DW was the original. She was a natural. So I didn't challenge it, since I enjoyed it so much.

sadly in our culture love has taken second tier to attention. nobody wants to love anymore, or even to be loved, they just want attention. Sad

During that era, it was common for multiple artist to cover the same song. Often times a cover would surpass the original in recognition and popularity. Whaddayaknow, you just inspired a new thread..Smile

Oh yeah, I can think of a million songs like that were covered immediately after initial success. Like the song "Just Don't Want To Be Lonely".

The Original version was by Ronnie Dyson, a year later Main Ingredient recorded the most popular version to this day, and then a year after that Blue Magic put some Philadelphia soul to those lyrics.

Original Version:

The Cover (Most popular version):

The Remake (Philadelphia style):

My personal favorite is Blue Magic's version.

I was young then too and the funny thing is today I awaken to a white woman singing this very song. you know she is the Aunt of Whitney Houston. I am astonished a young man such as you had the same song in mind today. You are cool as Ice I love to see young people with wisdom.

Seriously, I didn't know Luther did a cover of this song. It's a remake, because of what u said it's a different production than the original. I'll stick with the original on this.

Luther obviously of could have covered it the original way, but he wanted to put his own touch on it. It's a worthy remake tho.

I would say (over time) DIONNE'S recorded version is probably the one people probably have heard more. Lot of singers have recorded a version. It is funny that she originally turned it down, and Burt Bacharach didn't have enough confidence in the song (didn't really want to show it to Deshannon.)

Wow! I Don't think I have ever heard the original or the Blue Magic cover. Songwriting was so clean, poetic and accessible once upon a time. And they stand the test of time. Different styles of artists could take a song like this and make it their own. And they would all be credible. Nowadays the writing is so blunt and narcissistic, a song runs its course on the radio for a few weeks and then its forgotten when the next "hit" of the hour comes along..Smile

UMM...ITS STILL OK TO LIKE HER NOW...
