Jackie DeShannon hits the top 10 with “What the World Needs Now Is Love”

Written by the Brill Building team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David, the idealistic anthem peaked at No. 7 the week of July 24.

Other Bacharach (music) and David (lyrics) hits in ’65 included “Make It Easy on Yourself” by the Walker Brothers,  Manfred Mann’s “My Little Red Book” (covered by Love), and Tom Jones’s “It’s Not Unusual” and “What’s New Pussycat?”
