2021 Song Draft- Round 7 Pick 13- Cincinnati Babyhead selects- ‘Fortunate Son’- Creedence Clearwater Revival.
CB had no idea what this song was about when he first heard it. It rocked and it was CCR and that was good enough for him. It wasn’t until quite a while later that he clued in and heard what Fogerty was singing.
The opening is classic Creedence, everything in the song is classic Creedence. When CB finally clued into what John was saying the song became even more of a favorite. It struck a nerve. He was singing about my class and he was rocking with an emotional bite. The song is sung and played with lots of feeling. Listen to John wail. This song is busting at the seems with all sorts of emotion. I never get tired of it. A favorite for sure.
CB hates to be predictable but this tune goes perfectly with the Burns/Novick Vietnam film. I think I’ll listen to it again right now.
I’ve included a cover by Clutch (CB fave band). They are keeping the vibe alive. New school does old school old school. Crank it!!
