Credence Clearwater Revival was a great rock band. Listen to them and you want to go to a pawn shop and buy an electric guitar and amplifier and start singing bayou country rock. Of course it takes more than a guitar. You need an accomplished drummer and a gravelly voice too.
There are two CCR songs I stick in playlists: Down on the Corner and Green River. Many of the CCR songs have a dark aura about them and these two are happy, upbeat. Given the present circumstances maybe we should be looking for a dark CCR song for our theme song. Like Stuck in Lodi Again. Or Who’ll Stop the Rain. No, wait. I’ve got it. Bad Moon Rising.
There is one other CCR song that has popped into my head. I can’t get rid of it. Maybe I heard it in Kroger or WalMart or the mall. If I had to name the top ten CCR songs it wouldn’t have made the list. I can’t say that I even knew it was their song. I don’t know where it came from but I think it’s a better theme song that Bad Moon Rising.
It doesn’t matter who gets elected president or what laws are passed or who sits on the supreme court…
‘Long as I can see the light.
There are a lot of people who need to see the light, more today than they have ever been. They don’t need political arguments. They need to see the light. For that to happen I need to see the light. I need to show the light. I need to be the light.
