Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR) is a band many grew up listening to. Songs such as “Have You Ever Seen The Rain” have been used to help people get through tough times. The music seems to lift the spirits, and when the angelic vocals begin, your heart simply begins to sing, no matter what life has thrown at you.
Music is an aspect of our lives that we go to when we are sad, happy, working, driving, or sitting at home doing puzzles. The unfortunate thing is that many great songs have been lost in history. There are always new sets of songs being sung and contemporary artists performing them. It is getting hard to keep track of some of the classic bands that used to lift us up.
The good thing about everyone leaning towards online applications such as YouTube is that every artist that has performed can be found and listened to. When those older groups are remastered and reintroduced to the public, they come alive once again. Some of us may have forgotten bands such as CCR, but our parents and grandparents have not.
Ask your older family members about their memories associated with the band. You will be able to literally watch their faces light up with happiness or tear up with some sad memories. Through the good and bad, CCR has been there for them, and it is guaranteed they will have some stories to go along with the memories of the songs performed by the music legend. Even if their songs are related to memories that make us sad, they are still memories that remind us of who we really are and where are roots truly are.
That does not mean CCR is a band that goes along with the past and should be left there. Not even close. “Have You Ever Seen The Rain” is one of many that could be just as popular today as back when they were at their height. These songs are timeless, and since the technology to remaster older songs has been perfected, it only makes sense to bring this song back into the limelight.
Creedence Clearwater Revival is a unique group that has brought happiness to people for decades and will continue to do so until the end of time. Reintroducing the new generations to the legendary music of CCR is the best way to ensure that happens. It would be a shame to see bands like this become lost in history when they can still bring so much joy to those who listen to them.
