Not found one I don't like yet. I had to struggle to come up with one #1 Fortunate Son, with Down on the Corner/Run Through the Jungle tied for second, and every other song of theirs tied for third.

Who will stop the rain is my pick from CCR. I can remember a time when I'd play that song on repeat for hours.

I like most of CCR songs. Some people confuse what Run Through the Jungle is about, Here is what Fogerty said about the meaning.

However, in a 2016 interview, Fogerty explained that the song is actually about the proliferation of guns in the United States.

"The thing I wanted to talk about was gun control and the proliferation of guns... I remember reading around that time that there was one gun for every man, woman and child in America, which I found staggering. So somewhere in the song, I think I said, '200 million guns are loaded.' Not that anyone else has the answer, but I did not have the answer to the question; I just had the question. I just thought it was disturbing that it was such a jungle for our citizens just to walk around in our own country at least having to be aware that there are so many private guns owned by some responsible and maybe many irresponsible people."
