This song only evolved gradually. Empire Of The Sun's Luke Steele told The Sun: "Everyone loved the chorus but the verses weren't right. Then we went to Westlake studios in California where Michael Jackson recorded Thriller. We did the verses and it was like picking up pieces of puzzle - like building an ark."
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" was written by Nick Lowe in 1974. The original version with his group Brinsley Schwarz was kind of somber, but Elvis Costello made it a classic with his 1978 uptempo take.
