Musical Interlude: War (late 1980s)

Edwin Starr recorded "War" around 1969-70, but on the same album, he also recorded "Stop The War Now". Talk about working both sides of the fence. "War" was the most popular of the two, and gained a new audience of fans in 1985 when Bruce Springsteen released his version on his "Live 1975-85" set. If you've seen the "Rush Hour" movies with Jackie Chan & Chris Tucker, you know, then, that Chan has tried to cover it, mostly for laughs. So imagine being a fan at a Springsteen concert in the late 80's, and Starr comes out to join The Boss and the E-Street Band for a duet of "War". Wellllllll...... Enough said.
