I was looking over some of the recent set lists for John Fogerty, the genius behind Creedence Clearwater Revival, who's on the road celebrating "My 50 Year Trip" and arrives Friday at the Grand Theater in Foxwoods.

Hit. After hit. After hit. After hit. After hit. Seemingly forever.

No one writes or talks about "radio songs" anymore — those perfect three-minute tunes that somehow force your foot down on the accelerator, magically turn your aunt's Buick into a convertible Mustang, and cause you to throw your head back as the wind whips your hair and you howl along with the addicitive chorus.

Fogerty was a freakin' master at this — and he's crankin' a half-century's worth on this tour. There are NO weak or filler songs during which you can run to the bathroom or grab a beer and a hotdog.

So why, John, in this recitation of inimitable greatness, have you been leaving the wonderful "Sweet Hitchiker" off the set list? That's cruel, is what it is.

John Fogerty, 8 p.m. Friday, Grand Theater, Foxwoods; $55-$125; 1-800-200-2882,
