Music by BURT BACHARACH. Recorded by Jackie DeShannon. I was living in Roslyn, New York, on the north shore of Long Island, which is where my children were raised. I would drive into Manhattan every day to meet Burt (Bacharach) at the Brill Building in Famous Music’s offices on the sixth floor, where we did our writing. Mine was a rock and roll house where each of my kids had a band that practiced there. It was hard for me to find somewhere quiet to work so I would drive into town slowly, which would give me the opportunity to think and get ideas. I would write in my head during the ride.

Take astronomy as an example, which Yochai has already mentioned. Twenty years ago, 30 years ago, only big professional astronomers with very big telescopes could see far into space. And there's a big telescope in Northern England called Jodrell Bank, and when I was a kid, it was amazing, because the moon shots would take off, and this thing would move on rails. And it was huge - it was absolutely enormous. But actually, a lot of the content is created by the users themselves. And it creates a kind of stickiness between the community and the company which is really, really powerful. The best measure of that: so you go into one of his games, you create a character that you develop in the course of the game.
Chorus) What the world needs now is love sweet love. I know just exactly what world needs now, plead it Everybody come show a little love for your family, Jesus we need it And Even when I flip through the pages of my history Slowly reveal the mystery Got to get it together quickly, in this industry. Yo, yo, yo I could see far and beyond, me and my auntie Dionne With the homie Fazon, who's cool as freon As the music plays on, portrays and stays on Got this thing together, got to get our game together Life is life and if your ears are open You could see when you scope doors closed or open Whether. you're in or you're out You're always in and that's for sure And that's what friends are for, for what the world needs. Chorus) What the world needs now is love sweet love What the world needs now.
