    Black Eyed Peas? Probably because 'the voice' is on, everyone sees Will I Am and is like OMG lets download that old tune

    Probably performed by an act on Britain's Got The American X Factor Idol, that's usually the case. Some people suddenly go "oh wait I like dis song now lol have my money"

    Maybe people are appreciating their older stuff after finally realising how terrible they've become.

    I have no idea what the real reason is but someone has put theory on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Where_Is_the_Love%3F

    If more people want to own one of the best singles of the 2000s then that's fine by me, regardless of the reason.

    Personally it bothers me when people buy into a message and tell themselves that it makes a difference. Where Is The Love sold bucketloads, but how many of those buyers are still loveless *******s? Same for One Love by Bob Marley, people go on the YouTube video and comment something about how we all need to love one another, then the next minute is probably having a childish essay internet argument.

    The amount of bullies and selfish girls who claim to be fans of Creep by Radiohead is another one.

    But above all that, I don't get how those who just bought the song got from A to B. 'A' being 'a member of Black Eyed Peas is leaving' and 'B' being 'I must buy and listen to one of their songs'. If they were a fan or someone who liked the song, chances are they already had that song, and why are they buying it anyway?

    Replace all instances of 'love' in song titles to 'muff' and you'll see the true message.

    Because they've forgotten about it.,, It's been out for 10 years so they've stopped listening to it, they hear something about the Black Eyed Peas and they remember the song...

    And then dig out their CD or MP3, instead of buying a spare copy, right?

    Someone on YouTube said that it's because the song refers to terrorism and this relates to the recent 'terrorist' attack in Woolwich. Whether that's the real reason, I don't know. It's a good song either way.

    Could easily have lost it, or just never had it previously as they were too young or just liked the song but never bought it.
