Creedence Clearwater is the answer to a great music trivia question. What artist had the most number two hits (5) on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart but never a number one.
“Down On The Corner/Fortunate Son” was a great two-sided single. “Down On The Corner” was the A side and it reached number three on the singles chart. It was a typical Creedence catchy rock song that just stayed with you for days.
“Fortunate Son” was a hit in its own right reaching number 14. It was one of the most scathing anti-war songs of all time as it citicized children of privilege.
Released during the fall of 1969, it was one of the better single releases of its era.
