My fav:

CCR - Pagan Baby

"Down On The Corner" AKA " Willie and the Poor Boys" might be the most accessible. I think it's my fave. Some CCR songs I consider as de rigeur strip club music.

I was visiting my 1st cousin in Bahhhston when I was in town on business and he was like, hey do you want to go see John Fogerty tonight?  I was like, sure that seems fun. Wow, that guy is a madman. He played about 20 guitars in a 30 something song set.  I think he was 70 at the time? A friggin' guitar god.

What if I can't.  I looked at a list of their songs to try to narrow it down, but that made it worse. I eliminated the covers of other artists and I still can't pick one.
Pick one of the 3 albums from 1969.
Cotton Fields and The Midnight Special always pick me up though.

They were mainstream with 10 top 40 hits.

Thank you all. I will continue on my journey. I plan it to be peaceful. May you all see it yourselves to help the person next to you. We need this right now, Somehow, someway, we lost that. Let's get it back. The part of helping each other. I so hate this timeline. Thanks for letting me vent.

All of 'em!
Though Born on the Bayou has a very special place in my heart.

/was my late husband's favorite and if I was feeling blue he'd run and put that on and sing it to me until I cracked a smile ava kissed/hugged him for his effort to try whatever he could to make me feel better
//i miss him so
///i pull CCR up when missing him gets to much. 16 years and counting since he's been gone but CCR makes it feel less agonizing

Indeed we do need something good right now. I'm not a gal who sheds tears often, but lately, after all these months of this non stop 2020's Tom Foolery, being an essential worker at Sam's and seeing the worst in people...well, I've reached my limit of inner strength and am constantly on the verge of tears and physically/mentally exhausted.
Thank you for bringing some good memories of a better time. It felt good to smile for real again.

I'm really surprised Suzie Q. hasn't been listed by anyone. Is it too obvious? The long version is their best song, by a lot, in my opinion.

I will admit that most of my CCR experience as a kid (90s mostly) was a greatest hits CD with I believe those 20 songs on it.  I know that makes me a bit of a poser, but damn it was a great compilation.

4-5 years ago Fogerty put out an album with different bands covering various CCR songs.  It was a damn fine album, got to re-listen to a bunch of songs I hadn't heard in probably 30 years.
