Top Ten Greatest Cream Songs


The Top Ten

1 Sunshine of Your Love Sunshine of Your Love

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

Best guitar solo of all time!

2 White Room White Room

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.

Like sunshine, it is definitely a five star song

I like this song much better than crossroads. it is equivalent to the doors break on through

The best psychedelic song of Cream

Really good song but I personally think Crossroads is the best. - Beatlesboy9

My fave after50 years. The best Cream song.

6 Badge Badge

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!

The guitar solo in Badge was performed by George Harrison, supposedly in exchange for Clapton's solo on Harrison's "While my guitar gently weeps" recording for the Beatles.

Apparently, the cooperation ended here, as these 2 guitarists parted ways when Harrison got heavily into YOGI & Clapton pursued his R&R / Blues roots by forming Derek & the Dominoes.

7 I Feel Free I Feel Free

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! )

My favourite Cream song. Maybe even my favourite by any bands after Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay by Otis Redding. - BrianScott01

These guys were super all great songs in only a few years! Awesome!

Try to listen to this song without dancing.

This song really needs to be in the top ten!

9 I'm So Glad I'm So Glad

The riff! Clapton is just so beautiful! The riff is truly life changing! Believe this one is their best song!

10 Spoonful Spoonful

Ah yes, but not as good as the spoonful on wheels of fire the 16 min spoonful

Superb especially with headphones for full appreciation.

? Deserted Cities of the Heart Deserted Cities of the Heart

This song is so amazing, makes you think and feel that you are in an apocalistic atmosphere, the solo, the fast strumming of bruce in the acoustic, that bass lines and the Baker fast drumming, one of the hidden gems in the history of rock, totally underrated song.

It's my favorite on the list.

? Toad Toad

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.

Great composition. Clapton's most bitingly incisive, fierce solo ever.

15 We're Going Wrong We're Going Wrong

The 2005 gig at royal Albert hall was my favourite version of this song. Was not really interested in this song until I heard the 2005 version

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!

17 Anyone for Tennis Anyone for Tennis

This one's a little weird because it is so unlike Cream: subdued, delicate, and very catchy. Underrated.

18 Blue Condition Blue Condition

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.

19 Born Under a Bad Sign Born Under a Bad Sign

This is definitely an underrated song! - matty925
