Creedence Clearwater Revival -- 'Fortunate Son'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we'll provide the jams.


Fortunate Son is one of the great Vietnam War protest songs. If you don't know, it's about how well-heeled folks as well as the children of important people were able to skip the draft and not go off to war.

That's the fortunate son. But other than that, it has a great guitar riff, a driving beat, and John Fogerty sounds great.

Did anybody else love it when they used this song for a truck commercial? "Some folks are born made to raise the flag: ooooh, that red white and blue!". And they cut it off there, before he says "it ain't me!"
