Say It Again



Like most of you I suspect,  I have been enjoying the Political Protest songs feature on The New Vinyl Villian

I thought that I would offer one of my own from the mighty Edwin Starr given that I purchased his Essential Collection yesterday
Written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong in 1969,War quickly became a rallying song for all those who opposed the war in Vietnam.
It is also,sadly,  still pretty topical given what is about to kick off in Syria.
I defy you to last the rest of the day without shouting out loud at least once "War - huh, good god  What is it good for ... Absolutely Nothing  ... Say it Again"
If you've got kids  feel free to get them involved too!
