I'll admit it right up front. "The War Song" is far from Culture Club's best song. In fact there are many non hits that I like more than this song. The reason for the post is more to share the B-Side that has the chorus in Spanish. I figure maybe not everyone has heard that version. I don't know if it is on CD anywhere. If you know, let me know.
The song itself is a little cheesy. The lyrics aren't very sophisticated. They kind of sound like kids on a playground.
War war is stupid
People are stupid
Not exactly Bob Dylan when it comes to protest songs, but it is more danceable. I don't know if that is a good or a bad thing when trying to make a plea for peace.
