A Class Act for 104+ Years

There should be a movie made about this elegant lady - Mrs. Gwen Wood.  This photo was taken of her only a few weeks ago - a few months shy of her 105th birthday in June.  

I met Mrs. Wood when I was a graduate student at Harvard. Over the years I learned a lot from her. I used to jokingly tell her  that she needs to bottle her longevity secrets and sell them to the rest of us mere mortals. 

So long my friend!

Edwin Starr & Bruce Springsteen: WAR, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing!

 

"War" is a counterculture era soul song written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong for the Motown label in 1969. Whitfield first produced the song – a blatant anti-Vietnam War protest – with The Temptations as the original vocalists. After Motown began receiving repeated requests to release "War" as a single, Whitfield re-recorded the song with Edwin Starr as the vocalist, with the label deciding to withhold the Temptations' version from single release so as not to alienate their more conservative fans. Starr's version of "War" was a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1970, and is not only the most successful and well-known record of his career, but is also one of the most popular protest songsever recorded.

The song's power was reasserted when Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band took their rendition into the U.S. Top 10 in 1986. It was also covered by Frankie Goes to Hollywood.[1]
