Download This Song

"Spill the Wine" is a 1970 song performed by Eric Burdon and War. Released as a single in May 1970 (backed by the non-album track "Magic Mountain"), it was War's first chart hit, peaking at number three in the US. Billboard ranked the record as the No. 20 song of 1970. It was also a top three hit in Canada and Australia. It charted #15 in Netherlands and #28 in Germany.

An edited version, released as a promo single for radio stations and subsequently included on most compilations, omits the middle spoken recitation, plus one chorus. A sound of a French woman is heard in the background. A flute solo also dominates the song.
