Annotationen

Matthew Greenwald von AllMusic sieht diesen Song aus dem Musical «Funny Girl» (1964) als einer der ersten Adult Contemporary Hits. Der Song handelt von einer universellen Brüderlichkeit unter den Menschen. Barbra Streisand war 22 Jahre alt, als sie «People» sang. Der Arrangeur war Peter Matz, der Streisands Stimme mit Streichern und einem Horn (Waldhorn?) dialogisiert. Das Piano wechselt geschickt zwischen klassischen und Jazz-Harmonien.

Lyrics

People... People who need people Are the luckiest people in the world We're children, needing other children And yet letting a grown-up pride Hide all the need inside Acting more like children than children Lovers... Are very special people They're the luckiest people in the world With one person One very special person A feeling deep in your soul Says you were half now you're whole No more hunger and thirst First be a person who needs people People who need people Are the luckiest people in the world With one person One very special person A feeling deep in your soul Says you were half now you're whole No more hunger and thirst First be a person who needs people People who need people Are the luckiest people in the world
