“War” was¬†written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong in 1969 for the Motown label and Whitfield first produced the song with The Temptations singing. After the track became popular, Motown re-recorded the song with newcomer Edwin Starr on vocals, so as to not alienate more conservative fans of the group. Starr’s version of “War” went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1970.
