I can’t say I blame him but unfortunately he doesn’t own the rights. Waddaya gonna do. John Fogerty on 'Proud Mary' Film: It 'Has Nothing to Do With Me' "My songs are special to me. Precious. So it irks me when people seek to capitalize on the popularity of my music and the good will it has earned with the public for their own financial gain. Over the years, I have often found myself directly opposed to these uses," he continued. "This movie has nothing to do with me, or my song. They simply picked the title and wrote a completely fictitious story around it."
