Proud Mary


Even John Fogerty himself had to honor that the version of Ike & Tina Turner is better than his own.

Give me CCR's version anytime!

Give me John Fogerty's voice any day over Tina or Ike. CCR is one of the best band ever.

Tina wails...the end.

Thank-you so much for giving me a chance at voting for the Creedence Clearwater Revival's "version" of Proud Mary. Of course, they wrote and first performed the song. It is
MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH x 99 1/2 BETTER than the Ikeandtittyturner version.

Ike & Tina: WAY too fast. No groove to it, just rush-rush.
- Andres, Miami Beach, United States, 02.08.2007
Ike & Tina overdo this one a lot. It feels so forced and unnatural. And yet is a million times better than CCR's. That gives you an idea how bad were the Fogertys.
- Rash, Chicago, United States, 24.02.2007
The Turner's version had alot of energy but it pales in comparison to CCR's straight forward rock driven classic.
