Day 249: TBT – Jackie DeShannon (1965/1969)

Today, I’m sharing two 1960s throwback performances from Jackie DeShannon, both of which seemed appropriate on this rainy Thursday afternoon.

The first is a vintage performance of her 1965 hit “What the World Needs Now,” written by Hal David and Burt Bacharach, which hit number seven on the Billboard Hot 100.

The second is a vintage performance of her 1969 hit “Put a Little Love in Your Heart,” written by DeShannon, Jimmy Holiday, and Randy Myers, which hit number four on the Billboard Hot 100.
