Creedence Clearwater Revival: Proud Mary

08 Nov

Creedence Clearwater Revival singing Proud Mary. John Fogerty wrote the song that was recorded two years later by Ike and Tina Turner. The CCR version went to No.2 while the Turner’s version peaked at No.4 on the charts.

Proud Mary was covered 65 times in 1969 and has been covered 100 times overall. Elvis Presley covered it in the 70’s.

CCR had a lot of hit songs but Proud Mary is the one most people think of when thinking of the group.

    Instantly recognized by many, this is a classic by any standard.

    I was 25 when this was recorded and am now 66 so that gives an idea of how old this song is. Still prefer the Creedence version.
