Here’s one I remember well but the reason behind it is not what you think.

A plea for love and peace similar to those recorded by Sly & the Family Stone in the late 1960s, the lyrics of “Stoned Love” were a plea for the people of the world to end conflict and animosity between each other, specifically the Vietnam War. Writer Kenny Thomas chose the term “stone love” to define the concept of an unchanging bond between one another. The same phrase appeared more than sixteen years later in Kool & the Gang’s title “Stone Love” and in a slight variant two years later in The Stylistics’ title “I’m Stone in Love with You”
