How can a song be this good and still address legit political issues? Never happens. Except here, and CCR's fortunate son.

Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah,....that is his intro and he makes that sh*t sound good, damn good! RIP Marvin, thank you for the wonderful music. Timeless lyrics, 2014 and we still are no better than in the 1970s. The same issues race, environment, wealth distribution , haphazard and lopsided justice. Same bull, different actors. We create and are responsible for our own happiness.

Takes me back. Can see my mom flowing through the house, with the breeze blowing trough the windows and this playing in the background. I felt so safe, so happy, so alive. Miss those simple and very beautiful times.
