Music Break: Creedence Clearwater Revival

Who'll stop the rain?...

  1. Still digging the music breaks, JR. I'm not really forgetting the political scene...especially when you put up this song, one of my all time favorites.

    I don't think Fogerty gets enough credit for writing GREAT songs. If you'd have asked me out of the blue to name the best American songwriters I'd probably have forgotten to mention him. That's a sad thing to admit because he's great.

    I'll say it, though almost no one will agree: if I could only listen to Springsteen or CCR for the rest of my life, I'd pick CCR. And I like Springsteen; I'm sure I'd cheat on the deal and get caught blasting "Thunder Road" and "Cadillac Ranch" thru somebody's headphones...but you know what I'm saying.

    Fogerty's songs hit me in the gut in some way very few other people's songs do.

    I could go on and on, but I won't. And yes; with this one I'm back to politics, at least a little.

    Thank you, JR.
