„Theres one thing I wanna know:
What's so funny 'bout Peace, Love, and Understanding?“

—  Nick Lowe British singer 1949
Context: As I walk through This wicked world Searchin' for light in the darkness of insanity, I ask myself Is all hope lost? Is there only pain and hatred, and misery? And each time I feel like this inside, Theres one thing I wanna know: What's so funny 'bout Peace, Love, and Understanding? "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" on The New Favourites of Brinsley Schwarz (1974); the song later became a hit as sung by Elvis Costello.
