95 Songs of Summer, #47 - "Lookin' Out My Back Door" (1970)

Here we are, almost at the halfway point of this little countdown, and we finally get to our first Creedence song (except of the special 4th of July post).  Scandalous.

A lot of Creedence's best songs sound like they were made for summer, but none more than "Lookin' Out My Back Door."  Almost alone among their greatest, this one is totally innocent, just a guy sitting on his back porch, listening to Buck Owens, most likely on a really really hot August night.

Creedence Clearwater Revival, "Lookin' Out My Back Door," from the summer of 1970.
