Best Creedence Clearwater Revival Songs

The Top Ten

1 Have You Ever Seen the Rain? Have You Ever Seen the Rain?

I'm kinda' surprised that this song made it to number one on here. It's got so much heart, soul, and blues to it. What a great band.

Great song - lots of power and soul. Just a cracking great song. Lodi is another favourite as is long as I can see the light. Someday never comes is another classic that deserves a mention

This song is very well made and the members did the best job in creating this song

2 Fortunate Son Fortunate Son

This song embodies a generation. What more can you ask for?! Good lyrics? CHECK! Sweet Guitar? CHECK! Perfect Singing? CHECK

Their best by far

This embodies not just the sixties but any generation that has ever heard this song this song is about America it is the greatest song In American history

Makes me want to jump into a fully loaded Huey helicopter and serve up some freedom.

Fortunate Son is better than Have You Ever Seen The Rain, but not by a large margin.

I would say the reason that I'm such a big fan of CCR is that I watched 'The Big Lebowski'. The funny part is that I'm already a huge Slipknot fan.

Love the Big Lebowski reference. "Not the f@#$%*& Eagles". My Dad still sings this one "bathroom on the right".

Kind of Surprised, but yeah amazing song, thought that it would be a little higher, but Have You Ever Seen the Rain has so much soul that you really can't argue that it is killer.

I remember hearing this as a little kid, I was about six. Haven't heard it until today! I never remembered the name or anything... Good to hear it again!

I'd put it 2, behind Have you ever... rain. Such evocative images.

"Have You Ever Seen the Rain" deserves to be #1, but this is my favourite. It always makes me think of summer. - PetSounds

Listening to this now, groovy, upbeat and a great sound. Mood lifter!

How is this not # 1?!?! Seriously? It's amazing, shockingly motivational for my 15 year old self

... Outie in the street! Billy and the Poor Boys are playing, bring a nickle, tap your feet! - keyson

7 Lookin' Out My Back Door Lookin' Out My Back Door

Such a catchy and anti-depressing song. It should AT LEAST be in the top 10, but I guess 11 is good to, as long as its up there.

Every time I hear this song I think of the car scene in the Big Lebowski and it automatically makes me smile.

Impossible to not sing along to

8 Who'll Stop the Rain Who'll Stop the Rain

I was expecting this one to be in the top 3 and honestly, this is the only song in my opinion that's better than have you ever seen the rain

Only a little better than "have you ever seen the rain." The guitar melody is just so great on this one that it edges the vote for me. Should be at least in top 5, but at least their 2nd best is at #1

The only song less than 6 minutes that I would consider an "epic." The fact that it is sub-3(! ) and still garners the title is simply astounding.

Should definitely be in the top 5, without a doubt. Great beat, fun, and one of their most popular songs.

I understand that this song doesn't deserve to be number one, but it definitely deserves to be in the top ten.

10 Suzie Q Suzie Q

I'm offended that this isn't even in the top 10. Amazing song. Every song by them is amazing. Amazing band.

Are you kidding! This song should at least be in the top 3, if not the number one CCR song. Sad to see such a great song at number 9.

Susie Q is a great song, but you look at the top ten and they're all great songs, too. I guess you just can't go wrong with CCR.

I absolutely love this by Creedence. Was hard to choose between this and the gem that is Born On The Bayou. Two very different sounds. It all depends what type of mood I'm in at the time. Later today I might come back and vote the other. Who can tell? - Britgirl

An unknown song that, if written by the Eagles, would have become a timeless classic.

Great song, and I love Fogerty's arrangement. These guys were Americana personified.

This song was actually written in the 1850s...

? Born on the Bayou Born on the Bayou

This should be number ONE! Fogerty's voice is supernatural and this song is proof.

I really do think this song is CCR's masterpiece. It's not just Fogerty's, the drumming and the bass in this song are outstanding. Fogerty is great on every song, but I think the whole band really shines on this one. Also love Who'll Stop the Rain.

How in earth is this song not in the top ten? Someone screwed up bad here

This, "Who'll Stop the Rain", and "Green River" are 1-2-3 in my book.

The Contenders

11 Green River Green River

Jesus this should be top 5 no matter top 10...

Underrated song. Not CCR's very best, but it has a cool rhythm and should be in top 10 or maybe higher.

12 Run Through the Jungle Run Through the Jungle

I just selected a random CCR song when I didn't knew the band very good. This was the random song I selected and I loved it. It's been one of my favorites ever since.

It was a big gap on this list; just get a look on YouTube you'll c a video of it with more then 5M views. Now look something like "The Working Man" there's no video with more then a tenth of that one.

14 I Put a Spell On You I Put a Spell On You

Listen too this one, it's visceral. In every relation that last more then some weeks, there is always some kind of enchantment.

The best of John Fogerty- his voice is legend in this song.

The guitar solo is one of the best I ever heard

One of the greatest guitar solos ever..

16 I Heard It Trough the Grapevine

With all due respect to Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knight, etc., this is my favorite version of this song.

One of the best covers of all time.

Deserves to be top 5, best cover of all time

Their version is the best, easily.

17 Hey Tonight Hey Tonight

Brilliant song to swig back on some whiskey and make memories with friends and family

Love CCR! Although it's not the most know song, this is my favorite from them :)!

18 Sweet Hitch-Hiker Sweet Hitch-Hiker
19 Long As I Can See the Light Long As I Can See the Light

Number 18? What seriously? This song deserves to be #1!

This song has such raw emotion and the sax solo gives me goosebumps every time. At least for me, this is number 1.

Great lyrics, vocals and awesome playing should be in top 3
