Best Uses of Creedence Clearwater Revival Songs in Movies and Television
7. Forrest Gump - "Fortunate Son"
It is so lazy to have a CCR or Doors song as your central character helicopters into Vietnam, but this ancestor of punk rock is such a good song, we'll forgive Forrest and his stupid is as stupid does soundtrack philosophy.
6. Where the Buffalo Roam - "Keep on Chooglin"
Bill Murray as Hunter S. Thompson isn't as groovy as it sounds, but this scene where they pick up a hitchhiker while zonked out on drugs does choog along quite finely.
5. Music Scene - "The Night Time Is the Right Time"
Mama Cass introduces CCR in this 1969 episode as they add a hint of gospel that undoubtedly served as a blueprint for the Black Crowes 20 years later.
4. The Return of Swamp Thing - "Born on the Bayou"
The opening credits to this B movie featuring Heather Locklear shows panels from the Alan Moore-written DC comic from which it is based to the backdrop of "Born on the Bayou."
