Lesson notes

Bad Moon Rising is probably the happiest song about an impending apocalypse ever written, although it was most likely written in response to the election of Richard Nixon in 1968. Like many of John Fogerty’s songs, it seems pretty timeless and still relevant today. John said that the inspiration came from a movie called The Devil and Daniel Webster, where a small town is hit hard by a hurricane.
