95 Songs of Summer, #39 - "Spill the Wine" (1970)

This was another one of those songs that prompted my dad to repeatedly ask, "What's he saying?  What's he saying?  I can't understand what he's saying!"  As for me, I thought it was pretty darn exotic, or at least as exotic as a 10-year old can find anything.

Not long after "Spill the Wine," War came to the wise conclusion that they were talented enough to succeed without Eric Burdon, and they certainly did - becoming a hit machine that ran smoothly for several years.

"Spill the Wine," Eric Burdon and War - from the summer of 1970.
