"Love's In Need Of Love Today" as written by and Stevie Wonder....
Good morn or evening friends
Here's your friendly announcer
I have serious news to pass on to everybody
What I'm about to say
Could mean the world's disaster
Could change your joy and laughter to tears and pain

It's that
Love's in need of love today
Don't delay
Send yours in right away
Hate's goin' round
Breaking many hearts
Stop it please
Before it's gone too far

The force of evil plans
To make you its possession
And it will if we let it
Destroy ev-er-y-body
We all must take
Precautionary measures
If love and please you treasure
Then you'll hear me when I say

Oh that
Love's in need of love today
Don't delay
Send yours in right away
Hate's goin' round
Breaking many hearts
Stop it please
Before it's gone too far
Gone too far

Love's in need of love today

Don't delay

Breaking hate's tried to break my heart many times

Round break-ing hearts
And it tried to break up many hearts

    General CommentI agree that the lyrics are straightforward. But I have to disagree that they are cheesy. They are empowering! And this is one of the best songs ever.. definitely top 198. lol
    But, when he says "Love's in Need of Love Today" he's saying that people nowadays throw around the word "love" so much that it has become somewhat meaningless. He wants people to put a little love in love. And he wants the listeners to know that it's up to them to bring change into the world.

    Recommended song: "If You're Out There" by John Legend

    General CommentI love this song...by Stevie..but more so, by George Michael. *He covers it so well* The lyrics
    Hate's goin' round
    Breaking many hearts
    Stop it please
    Before it's gone too far

    The force of evil plans
    To make you its possession
    And it will if we let it
    Destroy ev-er-y-body

    Its that so true? I love this song...and no its not "cheesy". Sometimes, we never really knew...what we had..until its gone. Gone "to far"...and lost. Getting it back..is 50 50..its either gone...or its a fight to get it back...some would say, it should be free. I dont believe in free love. Love is earned, respected..and built. It can be torn down..and rebuilt.

    General CommentHate, negative feelings, insecurities, fear and money come first in so many people's life when they prioritize. It may have happened that you actually tried to put love first but the other people didn't take you seriously, and kept it in the second, third or whatever position while going their own way. I think this song has a message of hope for those people: to change their way right now, without waiting someone else's actions. And maybe there will be also hope for the other category.

    General Commentlyrics are kinda cheesy...but they're really straitforward...u really feel this song..."good morn or evenin friends" is the best line in the song, it's the perfect way to say "i'm talking to the entire world"
