Creedence Clearwater Revival – Someday Never Comes (1972)

Stumbled upon this track first thing this morning while surfing Spotify. Half a dozen listens later and it is rapidly escalated into the pantheon of thebestmusicofalltime!

A single from CCR’s final LP “Mardi Gras”, the motivation for the song is explained succinctly by composer John Fogerty:

“Someday Never Comes” is simply a song about my parents undergoing a divorce when I was a child and me not knowing many things. When my dad left me, he told me to be a man and someday I would understand everything. Now, I’m here basically repeating the same thing really. I had a son in 1966 and I went away when he was five years old or so and again told him “someday” he would understand everything. Really, all kids ask questions like “Daddy, when are we going fishing?” and parents always answer with “someday”, but in reality someday never comes and kids never learn what they’re supposed to learn

With a perfect chorus:

Well, I’m here to tell you now each and every mother’s son
You better learn it fast, you better learn it young
‘Cause ‘Someday’ never comes
