Top Ten Greatest Cream Songs
The Top Ten
Doors, Hendrix, Cream, Stooges, Burdon/Animals, Chambers Bros, Airplane, Zeppelin, Floyd, CCR, Velvet Underground--too damn good--fall 1966 to spring 1973 (end of 60s music)
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
One of e best riffs in rock history ( and it was jack Bruce that came up with it not Eric) think its a joke Erin is always the one mentioned when jack was all Round the better musician and such a great singer
Its Riff Is The Greatest Riff Ever Used By Eric Clapton. The Perfect Song For Begginer Rock Guitarists.
Also, its Lyrics Are Stunning
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.
Anyone who was a teen or twenty something in the late 60s and could hear recalls this song; many will remember simply "In the White Room" was one of the greatest rock tunes of all time, right up there with "Purple Haze" and "Road to Merikesh"
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
This is the definition of an amazing rock song, and in my opinion, you can hear the roots of heavy metal in the guitars, the vocals and the drums.
The greatest of all Cream songs...Ginger Baker at his best and Eric Clapton playing like the king he was.
excellent guitar riff, great bluesy feel, and the overall flow of the song is just stellar
I Heard Eric Do This Live, And It Sucked.
The Version He Did With Cream Is Just Stunning
Amazing song, so much soul, everyone should hear this song. Really.
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.
Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker & Eric Clapton!
End of Story!
I like this song much better than crossroads. it is equivalent to the doors break on through
Really good song but I personally think Crossroads is the best.
My fave after50 years. The best Cream song.
The best psychedelic song of Cream
I could listen to this on repeat for a good few hours. Catchy, fun, and featuring some irresistible guitar work from Clapton and co-writer George Harrison. Great tune, deserves the top spot.
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.
It is the best Cream song of all time. Clapton at his best and Bruce and baker are not shoddy either!
I could listen to this song for days, definitely one of their greatest.
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! )
Bump bump bump ba dum dum
Bump bump bump the dum
Come on, you've sang that at least once in your life.
These guys were super all great songs in only a few years! Awesome!
Try to listen to this song without dancing.
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.
It is actually true; She WAS Like A Bearded Rainbow!
This song really needs to be in the top ten!
This is their best song, no debate
The riff! Clapton is just so beautiful! The riff is truly life changing! Believe this one is their best song!
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.
Ah yes, but not as good as the spoonful on wheels of fire the 16 min spoonful
Superb especially with headphones for full appreciation.
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'.
This absolutely needs to be number one. The live version is legendary, everyone gives it their all. Jack Bruce's vocals are amazing. You have my vote
I really love the riff to this one. MASSIVELY underrated. One of my favorites from cream
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!
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
Great composition. Clapton's most bitingly incisive, fierce solo ever.
Drums are life
A mostly forgotten, but exquisite gem, look it up and have a listen on YouTube, you'll be glad you did!
Clapton's tribute to Roger McGuinn and the Byrds, SO amazing.
This is definitely an underrated song!
This one needs to be way higher
This is a great cover.
Their best song. Sad that it's not in the top 10...
Very underrated; haunting
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.
What a cool tune, so underrated
