Sunday Morning Vault: Jackie DeShannon--What the World Needs Now Is Love (1965)

     Jackie DeShannon is one of the most underrated songwriters of the 60's, although this song, was written by Bacharach and David. It was originally pitched to Dionne Warwick who eventually recorded it, but initially passed on it. DeShannon had one other hit, (Put a little love in your heart) but who's career was defined by not only the music she wrote in the 60's, but in the re-recording of a lot of her material by artists in the 80's and early 90's.
