Musical February : Day 3

I’m a big music fan so thought it might be nice to take part in Bee’s ” Love is in Da Blog” Challenge for the month of February.

Today’s prompt is a love song for all countries troubled by violence – too many to mention!

I immediately thought about Where is the Love? Recorded and released by hip-hop group the Black Eyed Peas in 2003 who call out so many conflicts and evils on this track — racism, war, gang violence, terrorism, chemical warfare, greed, misleading and salacious media reports, inequality, to name a few. alleges the inspiration for the original song came from the generalised anxiety following the September 11 attacks. In the song the Black Eyed Peas urge us to attempt to understand one another so that we might find common ground.

What ever happened to the values of humanity? / Whatever happened to the fairness and equality? / Instead of spreading love we’re spreading animosity / Lack of understanding leading us away from unity.

“Love Is In Da Blog” Rules/suggestions

  1. Join in! No matter where, when and with what. You missed the first day or week? Don’t worry. Just jump in when it suits you.
  2. Send us the link! My blog is public again, so ping-backs work. A ping-back is a link from one WP blog to another. If you blog on another platform, please leave your link in the comments.
  3. Tag your post either with “Love Is In Da Blog” or “LoIsInDaBl” or “Love Is In Da Blog 23” or #LoIsInDaBl23. You can also use these as hashtags for Twitter and other Social Networks to give your post more exposure.
  4. No matter which music the prompt favours, you create with it whatever you please and whatever length you please (no pun intended 😉 ) as long as it is about “LOVE.”
  5. I post the prompt post the day before, so you have some time to make up your mind and create your post. There won’t be two different posts, and I hope it’s not too confusing.
  6. If you like, use this picture for your readers to find the posts.

  1. I’m not very savvy when it comes to sharing links but I did want to thank you for sharing this song today, Sheree… It has always made me cry, especially “People living like they ain’t got no Mamas.” Always loved the Black Eyed Peas. My kids had all their albums. Just added this to my playlist: hadn’t heard it in awhile so my sincere thanks…xo 🙂💕
