„As I walk through
This wicked world
Searchin' for light in the darkness of insanity,
I ask myself
Is all hope lost?“

—  Nick Lowe

"(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. ( Nicke Lowe performance http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7txCdLCP9U - Elvis Costello & Nick Lowe joint performance http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWdh7ERLb3E)
Kontext: 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?

Is all hope lost?“

—  Elvis Costello English singer-songwriter 1954

Though Costello's cover became a hit, "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding", was actually written by Nick Lowe.
