Nostalgic evening :D
This tune have so much emotion and go in it..I just love it. This is 1969,
in 1984 Frankie Goes To Hollywood did it on a album called Welcome To The Pleasuredome. But it eint that energic like Edwin´s version.
Edwin did 10 albums and he died 2003. The biggest hit of his career, which cemented his reputation, was the Vietnam War protest song "War" (1970). Starr's intense vocals transformed a Temptations album track into a #1 chart success, which spent three weeks in the top position on the US Billboard charts, an anthem for the antiwar movement and a cultural milestone that continues to resound in movie soundtracks and hip hop music samples.
It sold over three million copies, and was awarded a gold disc. "War" appeared on both Starr's War and Peace album and its follow-up, Involved. Involved also featured another song of similar construction titled "Stop the War Now", which was a minor hit in its own right.
The Tune Of The Day is a blog that is built on daily events. A new Tune everyday! All the music grows up during what we do or what happens everyday. Both Stones and Thetania work in the music business so many Tunes and stories are built from that. I hope you will enjoy it and don't be afraid to leave a comment or even sign up and follow it. We also add every tune to Spotify so you can subscribe to that list aswell.
