Creedence Clearwater Revival

There are three music groups that I love. In fact I would be ok listening to their music from now own. Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR) is one of them and the other two are The Doobie Brothers and Three Dog Night. CCR started in 1967 and wrote 78 songs and produced 32 alums. They were just a group of young guys who loved music and the world found out about them.

I was a high school sophomore when a friend gave me a CCR album and the lead song was Green River. I listened to that song until I wore out the needle on the stereo. Today in our ski boat there is one CD that is allowed to play in the boat. Creedence Clearwater Revival. The first song that cues up for playing is Green River followed by the second best song ever, Bad Moon Rising

Life is kind of funny in how things that make such an impression on us when we are young, stay with us when we get older. That is the reason that muscle cars are so valuable today. The older guys have made money and buy the muscle car they wished they could have bought when they were young. Of course the price today is 10-20 times as much, but it symbolizes a time when we were young.

Music is like that. It brings you back to a period of your life that you look back on. I remember I was at a Three Dog Night concert a few years back and when they started playing Shambala, I thought about the memory and the time period that song took me back to. It was high school which was the best 6 years of my life. Ha

So I guess it is ok to watch old movies or listen to old songs that remind of where you came from so long as you don’t get stuck in the past and not move forward with life. So today, go to YouTube and put in Green River or Bad Moon Rising and click on Creedence Clearwater Rival and let it wash over you. KT

  1. CCR was my favorite band as a young teen when I first really started getting into music. Good Golly Miss Molly, Born on the Bayou (long version), Green River–I loved all those. And wouldn’t I love it if I still had the 1967 Malibu I sold for $600?

  2. I still listen to “all” the classics from “all” genres. lol But, I do love a lot of new stuff too. I guess I just love music. ha
