Proud Mary? CCRs original version is just about as perfect a rock song as was ever made.
A matter of opinion and personal preference, I suppose. I like a few songs, but I've never been overly fond of CCR and I'm pretty certain that the Ike & Tina Turner Revue's cover of "Proud Mary" was my first exposure to the song (probably here) and remains my favorite one.

That's just me, though.
Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming
