An American Classic Inspired By A Child

Partly written for John Fogerty’s then 3-year-old son Josh, Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Lookin’ Out My Back Door’ is an American classic that reminds us of everything awesome about being young! Not surprising, considering that it’s a song that John wanted to express childlike innocence; in fact, in ‘Lookin’ Out My Back Door’ there’s a line about a parade passing by, which Fogerty says was inspired by the Dr. Seuss book “To Think (That) I Saw It On Mulberry Street”.

Fun Fact: ‘Lookin’ Out My Back Door’ was Creedence’s fifth and final #2 Billboard hit.

It’s pretty much impossible to listen to this classic and stay in a bad mood. ‘Lookin’ Out My Back Door’ has a really warm, sunny feel to it that reminds you of long childhood summers and I’m sure it’s something that John’s son looks back on fondly when he thinks about growing up with a musical legend for a dad!
