A read through certainly adds another dimension to the listening experience. Fogerty himself says making this album was a joyous journey. For us the listener it results in about an hour of unparalleled joy as the man takes us on a journey through his past and brings us bang up to the future with two new numbers. Whether it is old classics from the halcyon days of CCR or his impressive solo career it is easy to forget the arsenal of top notch songs Fogerty has in his back catalogue.
Research because of course I can never be wrong eventually became number 3 on this list. I hope there are a few surprises in here for you too. An argument can be made that this and the version by The Buggles are the same exact song since Bruce wrote it with Trevor Horn and Geoff Downes who would later form The Buggles.
The song was written in by Bertolt Brecht and set to music in by Kurt Weill who was probably not on drugs when it was written.
The song was written in English for the German operetta Mahagonny and was sung by his wife Lotte Lenya who sounds a lot like Lili von Schtupp. The song was later used in the full opera Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny being the only non-German song. The plaintive singing sets up perfectly the mood of the film as key plot points play out.
At least this is what a lot of people think but the song was around for almost 30 years before the movie was named after the song and not the other way around. The songwriter Burt Berns hated what Spector did with the song and gave it to the Isley Brothers to redo.
It reached number two in the US and number one in the UK. But this is not the only controversy associated with the song. Lori Lieberman claims to have inspired the song based on a poem she wrote about Don McLean but lyricist Norman Gimbel and music writer Charles Fox disagree and say that Lori talked about the song and Don McLean after they had written it.
Lori Lieberman, a Jennifer Aniston lookalike, sang the original version of the song a year before Roberta Flack catapulted it into the national consciousness.
Starting with Pete Seeger, the song was repeatedly covered and redone.Forty years after Creedence Clearwater Revival broke up, John Fogerty tells Dorian Lynskey why things are finally looking up.
