I first came across this song on Stargate SG-1’s series finale, ‘Unending‘. For that episode it was in some ways an apt song to have on which I think has influenced my liking and possibly increased my enjoyment of the song itself. When I first heard the song I was captivated by the deep voice of the singer and the catchy yet gentle riffs. The song itself is a bit short and sweet but satisfying.
A bit of background information is in order; “Have You Ever Seen The Rain?” is a song written by John Fogerty and was released in 1970 in the album Pendulum by the American rock group Creedence Clearwater Revival. Overall, I find that I’m increasingly liking more ‘vintage’ music, especially 70s funk rock. Apparently Creedence ’specialised’ in swamp rock- I can honestly say that is the first time I’ve heard of that genre. However, having said that, there that many sub-genres within rock now, that it is quite ridiculous. I digress…
Anyhow let’s see, I’d give this song 3 STARS (out of 5), just shy of getting 4 STARS. Why? I wish it was a bit longer, so that I could enjoy it more- keep pressing repeat isn’t quite the same!
