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.
As for literary criticism in general: I have long felt that any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel or a play or a poem is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae or a banana split. ~ Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
