Today, my favorite song is

Bring The Boys Home by Freda Payne. BTBH was released on the Invictus label in 1971 and is my favorite anti-war song of all time.

There are many anti-war songs, and someday I will make a list of all my faves.

Invictus records was formed in Detroit by Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland after they left Motown Records. Having left Motown at the peak of their careers as the world's most successful songwriting/production team in 1968, Holland-Dozier-Holland had to fight many legal battles with their former employer before they could start their own record labels in 1969.

Invictus and Hot Wax released a string of hit singles in the early 1970s, and Holland-Dozier-Holland remain one of the most important songwriting teams in pop music history.
