Peace, Love and Understanding

THE DAILY Q #288


InQuire more: Today’s Q is inspired by Nick Lowe’s classic anthem of the same name – written more than 40 years ago, and as timely as ever as a “song that stands tall for humanity in a callous world.”

“As I walk this wicked world, searching for light in the darkness of insanity, I ask myself, ‘Is all hope lost? Is there only pain, heartache, and misery?’ And each time I feel like this inside, there’s one thing I’d like to know: What’s so funny about peace, love, and understanding?”

Read Lowe’s observations on the song here, and take a listen to it as performed by Elvis Costello and the Attractions here.
