  • About The NEW Bardots

    This fast-paced Ramone esk remake is a get-up and shake-it version of the classic Jackie Deshannon’s “Put A Little Love In Your Heart”.


    “With everything that’s going on in the world today and all the hate in the world and on both sides of the political isle we thought this song was a perfect catalyst to not only send a message of “LOVE” but just an overall fun, rip roaring rock and roll version to forget all your troubles and bounce to!” - Wayne O  (Lead Singer The NEW Bardots)

  • Some History about The Song

    "Put a Little Love in Your Heart" is a song originally performed in 1968 and released in 1969 by Jackie DeShannon, who composed it with her brother, Randy Myers, and Jimmy Holiday.

    In the USA, it was DeShannon's highest-charting hit, reaching #4 on the Hot 100 and #2 on the Adult Contemporary charts.

    In late 1969, the song reached number one on South Africa's hit parade. The song rivaled the success of her signature song, "What the World Needs Now is Love".
