Monday Long Song - Stop the War

A 1970 Whitfield/Strong written anti-Vietnam war song from Edwin Starr, here covered 12 years later by a young Neneh Cherry (along with Joe Blocker and the late On-U Sound legend George Oban) as a response to the Falklands War. 

Here we are another 40 years on.

Excellent choice.
I have no words - or too many - about the world right now.

Alyson said...

Yes, an excellent choice as C said. I remember that time 40 years ago really well as it was a pivotal time in my life. Can't believe what we're witnessing right now, in 2022. So sad.

As they said.

These are dark days. It's unfathomable to think that the song is still so relevant in 2022.
