Top Ten Greatest Cream SongsZezerex
The Top TenXW
Its Riff Is The Greatest Riff Ever Used By Eric Clapton. The Perfect Song For Begginer Rock Guitarists.
Also, its Lyrics Are Stunning
Might be the best riff in any song along with smoke on the water. It is an awesome song. I am just shocked that Toad isn't on this list at all. It is an incredible drum solo and in my top 5 cream songs, probably some of the inspiration for Zeppelin's Moby Dick
Great riff and superb offbeat drumming

If not the best Cream song this is definitely a gold standard for Rock songs in general.
I'll wait in this palce, where the sun never shines, wait in this place where the shadows run for themselves... One of the most emotional moments in rock history
The solo is also pretty good... Great song - fidelcanojr
Without doubt the best Cream song there is. The awesome intro harmonies, and then that snare. Just one nod. And it explodes into that blistering riff. And the way Jack says "In A white room with black curtains, at the station..." You just know it's the beginning of an amazing journey. Baker was immense in this song. Bruce was at his vocal best and the basslines are so good. And Clapton. Was more Clapton than ever.
Perfect combination of chill and hype. Sends me on a trip.V11 Comments
excellent guitar riff, great bluesy feel, and the overall flow of the song is just stellar
Amazing song, so much soul, everyone should hear this song. Really.
One of the best guitar solos forever!
Mind blowing.. Just wow!V6 Comments
I'm addicted to this song
The best psychedelic song of Cream
Really good song but I personally think White Room is the best. - Beatlesboy9
Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker & Eric Clapton!
End of Story! - Nirmal1991USA
Pure Simple Brilliance! This song personifies the Legendary & Incredible Journey of the Mighty Odysseus!
With tales of great solo's, your naked ears are pleasured by cream sweetly singing.
Listen to how great Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker are on this classic--(I swear I believe Clapton was the 3rd most talented guy in this band! )
These guys were super all great songs in only a few years! Awesome!
Bump bump bump ba dum dum
Bump bump bump the dum
Come on, you've sang that at least once in your life.
Best song for me.
I could listen to this song for days, definitely one of their greatest.
It is the best Cream song of all time. Clapton at his best and Bruce and baker are not shoddy either!
Clapton's riff in the middle, restrained but so powerful!V7 Comments
I agree much better than Moby Dick, (no disrespect to Bonham), also black Sabbaths' "Rat Salad" is an amazing song with a drum solo in it
One on the greatest drum solos and much better than Moby Dick. Also has a great guitar riff to it.
This song really needs to be in the top ten!
It's my favorite on the list.
Ah yes, but not as good as the spoonful on wheels of fire the 16 min spoonful
Superb especially with headphones for full appreciation.
The riff! Clapton is just so beautiful! The riff is truly life changing! Believe this one is their best song!
This one's a little weird because it is so unlike Cream: subdued, delicate, and very catchy. Underrated.
Probably the best song for me! What a song! I'm not talking about drum bit or guitar riff or the vocal here.. Because its self understood (all four section are the best). If you look at the lyrics, it just becomes the most auspicious, overwhelming and welcoming song in everyone's life. Just ask urself... WE'r GOING WRONG? Defiantly at the moment!
N.S.U. should definitely be the one. The perfect song.
You should at least have experienced it.
I am very curious to know how other people think about it.
(or why they neglect it) It is sheer magic. It has been called a kind of nursery rhyme, and I take that to mean it is hypnotizing. It even can give you energy, or lust for life, or lift you out of a depression.
(also, it is the only cream song which has passed through so many changes, 1. the short, fast and perfect studio version on 'Fresh Creeam' (<3 min), 2. the early rough life versions 3. long life versions (12 min, and 24 min! ), and finally the slow latest version (reunion concert), why so many versions? ) and it is probably their very first song, fresh from pure inspiration or improvisation, not so contrived or sophisticated as the other cream songs. (compare 'take it back'. - sjcohen
The best cream song hands down. It doesn't have outrageous guitar work, but the lyrics and Ginger Baker's vocals make this a fresh and welcoming song.
Best song they ever did, live version at Albert Hall is sublime
