Djrobblog's Twelve Songs of Peace...for a Nation in Need of Healing

The following is a list of twelve songs about peace and love, in no specific order. The list was inspired by recent world events, particularly those of June 12, 2016, in Orlando, Florida, where 50 people were killed and 53 more injured during a mass murder/terrorist act at the Pulse Orlando nightclub.

"What the World Needs Now Is Love" - Jackie DeShannon (1965)

The legendary team of Hal David and Burt Bacharach wrote this classic tune and Jackie DeShannon was the first of over 100 artists to record it (a list that includes fellow legend Dionne Warwick). In the above video, Jackie sings this waltz with all the enthusiasm a world full of love deserves. The result was a top ten pop hit for her in 1965.
