da "The New Favourites of Brinsley Schwarz" (1974)

Scritta da Nick Lowe per il suo gruppo, Brinsley Schwarz, la canzone è universalmente nota grazie alla versione di Elvis Costello & The Attractions che la incisero nel 1979.

La canzone è stata incisa anche da Curtis Stigers (la sua versione fa parte della colonna sonora del film "The Bodyguard") dai Wallflowers e recentemente cantata addirittura dagli Audioslave.

peace love and understanding



(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding is a song written by English musician Nick Lowe. The song was originally released in 1974 on the album The New Favourites of Brinsley Schwarz by Lowe's band Brinsley Schwarz.

The cover by Elvis Costello & The Attractions is the version of the song that most people know but, strictly speaking, Elvis Costello & The Attractions never recorded this song. It was originally the B side of Lowe's American Squirm and was credited to Nick Lowe and His Sound. At the time Lowe was Costello's producer, and he produced this track as well. When the song became a hit, it was quickly appended as the last track to the U.S. edition of Costello's album Armed Forces.

(Wikipedia)
As I walk through
This wicked world
Searchin' for light in the darkness of insanity.

I ask myself
Is all hope lost?
Is there only pain and hatred, and misery?

And each time I feel like this inside,
There's one thing I wanna know:
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding? Ohhhh
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding?

And as I walked on
Through troubled times
My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes
So where are the strong
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony?
Sweet harmony.

'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away, just makes me wanna cry.
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding? Ohhhh
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding?


So where are the strong?
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony?
Sweet harmony.

'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away, just makes me wanna cry.
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding? Ohhhh
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding? Ohhhh
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding?

Prenditela con ARTE... dalla Francia si poteva vedere tutto ma ho guardato solo i primi dieci minuti. Comunque il signor Czarnetzki mesi fa ci aveva scritto per sapere se avevamo dei video inediti... a volte questo sito ci fa apparire molto più pieni di risorse di quanto siamo in realtà...
