Love Is Need Of Love Today is my Song Of The Week. I chose this song on April 25, but I write my posts beforehand. So… that is why you are only reading it now. And besides, with all the xenophobia and hate going on at the moment, we all could use a little of Stevie Wonder his wisdom. It is no secret that I LOVE music. I have my parents to thank for that. When I was a child, my parents would play CDs every single Sunday morning starting at 07:00. Yes, that is seven o’clock in the morning.
At that time, I thought it was absolutely horrible. All of my peers could hear my parents blasting rock hits and other golden oldies, and we were living in the late nineties. How embarrassing was that?
Love‘s In Need Of Love Today is one of the songs they introduced me to. Thank you, Mom & Dad.
Well, now that I think back, it is not embarrassing at all. Because I had no other choice but to listen, I slowly started to like their music. That is when I discovered that the artists I thought were so cool and creative were not cool and creative at all. They just sample old songs. Anyone can do that.
Stevie Wonder also has one of the best & funniest Carpool Karaoke episodes I have seen. I love how the episode started with Stevie behind the wheel, LOL. And you want to know something? I teared up along with James when he called his wife and she spoke to him. OMG! That is amazing & I am so happy for her but so fucking jealous at the same time! Let me tell you, I would have bawled my eyes out if I were Julia!
So this week’s Song Of The Week is Love’s In Need of Love Today.
Why do I love this song? Well… Have you listened to it? Love really is in need of love today. Just look at what is happening in the world: We could all spread more love.
Second, I love the melody. It is so soothing, relaxing. The first time I heard this song, I could not make out the lyrics all that well. After I Googled them, I knew that this song would be one of my favorites for the rest of my life.
I chose the video below because I love the pictures of the different cute & furry animals.
I love the entire song; it is relevant in any time we live in. But I will write one of my favorite parts below.
Good morn or evening friends, here’s your friendly announcer. I have serious news to pass on to everybody.
