Creedence Clearwater issued a number of high quality singles. Most sounded as if they were straight from the bayou and many had an ominous sound.
An exception to this rule was the up-temo/rocking “Looking Out My Back Door.” It was a joyful song of imagination as one looked out their back door to behold all manner of sights.
The song would be their fifth to reach the number two position on The United States singles charts. They would also have a number three and a four but amazingly never a number one hit in their home country.
The music was almost shuffle rock ‘n’ roll as it percolated along. It is one of the more joyful songs in the large Creedence catalogue.
