Tough to narrow it down to 3. At the moment, I would probably go with: Ramble Tamble, Green River, Born On The Bayou.

By the way, does anybody hear the similarities between Travelin Band and Hard Headed Woman??

Also...tell me that Fogerty didn't get some of his sound from these guys:

Born on the bayou
Green River
Fortunate Son (live version from 1969 or ´70 is fabulous...great drummer too!)

Almost impossible to pick just three from this great band...!

It has elements of a number of 50s rock classics, but the vocal owes most to Little Richard.


Tough to pick just three, but I do really enjoy:

Lodi
Fortunate Son
Have You Ever Seen the Rain?


Proud Mary is perhaps as good as each of those, but I don't find myself as drawn to it.

Top Three (For Today):
"Up Around The Bend" -- one of the coolest intros in rock history
"Fortunate Son" -- inspired by David Eisenhower
"Don't Look Now (It Ain't You or Me)" -- tribute to Elvis at Sun

I don't.

"Travelin' Band" is a 100% homage to Little Richard, right down to the sax solo played by John. It's a lot of "Long Tall Sally" crossed with a pinch of "Keep A-Knockin'."

He didn't.

Mickey Hawks (and Fogerty) pulls from the sound of the one and only Georgia Peach, Richard Penniman. Hawks, who played piano, also adored Jerry Lee Lewis.

And Fogerty's vocal style, as he might tell you himself, also owes a lot to the great Howlin' Wolf.

You nailed it! To do a top five I would have added "Fortunate son" and "Sweet hitch-hiker".

Actually, with the plethora of brilliant songs John Fogerty wrote, it isn't hard to come up with favorites, 'cause they were almost 100% instant classics, and have stood the test of time until today !
