the eiffel tower.

so today i was pondering the greatness of the eiffel tower. and to be honest, i'm not sure if i think it's as great as everyone says it is. however, i have never been there, so i can only give a partial opinion. but, from what i see, it is a large tower. this doesn't mean that i don't want to visit it. it also doesn't mean that i don't want to learn more about it. perhaps the next post will be one of apology to the tower, because i have since found it to be cool. but for now...too much hype?

edwin starr.

so...every morning at the post office we listen to music, and it's mostly oldies, and there isn't a huge variety. so i've become well acquainted with a few of the songs. and there are 2 songs that have caught my attention. one is "love machine" by the miracles (which perhaps will get it's own post later)...
but for now...the other song i really like is edwin starr's "war". you can tell that he cares about what he's singing about. and i like it. he is definitely passionate about how much he hates war. and...btw... i'm not really trying to cater to one side or the other...i also like "proud to be an american", but...this time, i like war a little more. so anyway, just thought i'd let yall in on my musical likings of the week (and update my blog).

Edwin Starr - WAR

WAR! I despise,
'cos it means destruction of innocent lives,
War means tears to thousands of mother's eyes,
When their sons gone to fight and lose their lives.

I said WAR!...huh...good God y'all,
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing...say it again
War! Huh...What is it good for (Edwin sings 'Wohh oh Lord' over the top)
Absolutely nothing...listen to me

WAR! It ain't nothing but a heartbreaker,
War. Friend only to the undertaker.
Ohhh! War is an enemy to all mankind,
The thought of war blows my mind.
War has caused unrest within the younger generation
Induction then destruction...who wants to die? Ohhh

WAR! good God y'all huh
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing...say it say it SAY IT!
WAR!...uh huh yeah hu!
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing...listen to me
