Fortunate Son. One of the best songs in rock history.

One of the best rock bands in music history is Creedence Clearwater Revival, they did not last too much but did record so many great songs that are in music history by its own merits such as the one you are to enjoy on this post today. Fortunate Son that has somewhat become an anti war anthem.

As a matter of fact, fortunate son song was written and published in 1969 by Creedence Clearwater Revival, at that time Vietnam War impacted severely into the lives of Americans as millions of innocent Americans died in a conflict that made United States seem vulnerable for the first time. Even though lyrics of Fortunate Son song are not insulting nor clearly attacking disingenuous for many at that time United States government, richly ironical lyrics plus the superb music has made Fortunate Son be one of the finest songs in rock history. Now you can see a modern live version of Fortunate Son with leader of Creedence Clearwater Revival. John Fogerty with another American musical hero Bruce Springsteen. Do share, rate and comment.
