  • Favorite Creedence Clearwater Revival song

    And feel free to go into detail.

    I love 'em all, but my favorite is "Born on the Bayou." Epic. "Green River" would be a close second.

    Green River without a doubt is the best. And who can't love "There's a Bathroom on the Right"?
    I also like Susie Q, but it needs to have both Part I and II.

        My problem with picking a favorite CCR song is that so many of Fogerty's songs are similar, in rhythm, lyrics, and overall feel. That is not a criticism since CCR will always evoke great memories of times, moods, and places in my life but it is the overall body of CCR's work rather than individual songs which I have deeply enjoyed.

        Anyway, enough with the BS. For a faster pace, Travelin' Band is at the top of my list but my overall number one is Long as I Can See the Light

          Did you say Creedence Song?



          Of course this one doesn't count.

          I've always like Up Around the Bend because it is such a positive song. I liked Hey Tonight because it had somewhat of a jangly rock-a-billy feel.

          One song I liked of theirs that is not on the list is Someday Never Comes. It came out near the end of their run. It is sort of a life imitates art song for John Fogarty.

            Growing up with blue collar parents in a town that has its share of white collar workers, "Fortunate Son" is a natural.

            It applies to several politicians on both sides of the aisle, but I'll not go there.

              My mutant friends and I went thru a CCR phase in the mid 80s.
              A Creedence tape ( no CDs yet) was mandatory everytime we killed brain cells in the woods

              I voted for Lookin Out My Back Door because 25 years later I can still see a crystal clear image in my head of my old friends laughing and partying around a fire in the woods behind my old house in Jersey while that song was playing on my late friend Scotts gigantic boom box

                Wow.

                I grew up on CCR. Thanks for getting me to spend $15 on iTunes.

                I think it's funny that this poll comes out today when National Speak Like A Pirate Day was yesterday. Everybody knows that a pirate's favorite band is ccRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

                  I'm going with "Have You Ever Seen the Rain" tonight but I would pick a different song tomorrow and another then next day.

                  Great band.

                    All great songs, but Fortunate Son kicks ass like none of the others.

                      I went with "Lodi" only because I spent part of my youth in the San Joaquin (Manteca - 25 miles south of Lodi) and can relate to being "stuck" in a small farm town. That being said, I could vote for each and every one of the songs listed - I have them all!

                      To go along with the poll, the VERY BEST concert I ever went to was a CCR concert at Cobo Hall back in the early 70's. The opening acts were Wilbur Harrison ("Kansas City") and Booker T and the MGs ("Green Onions"). When CCR started playing, the joint erupted! It was actually scary because you could feel the seats / stands swaying from everyone jumping up and down and dancing!

                        You said it. It even holds up under the Bob Seger cover.

                          I learned something from this poll. I did not remember or realize that "the old man is down the road" was not an actual CCR song or the lawsuit that came from it. Pretty interesting read if you scroll down to the "After Creedence" section on this wiki link. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creeden...rwater_Revival

                            Lodi, if you've ever been in a bar band then you'd know why.

                              Sounds like the same concert referenced in The Big Chill. “Listen to those guys--God damn! You remember the night we saw ‘em at Cobo?”
