Eric Clapton,Jack Bruce - Sunshine of your love


"Sunshine of Your Love" is a 1967 song by the British rock band Cream. With elements of hard rock, psychedelia, and pop, it is one of Cream's best known and most popular songs. Cream bassist and vocalist Jack Bruce based it on a distinctive bass riff he developed after attending a Jimi Hendrix concert. Guitarist Eric Clapton and lyricist Pete Brown later contributed to the song and drummer Ginger Baker plays a distinctive tom-tom drum rhythm.

The song was included on Cream's best-selling second album Disraeli Gears in November 1967. Atco Records, the group's American label, was initially unsure of the song's potential. After recommendations by other label-affiliated artists, it released an edited single version in December 1967. The song became Cream's first and highest charting American single and one of the most popular singles of 1968. In September 1968, it became a modest chart hit after being released in the UK.

Cream performed "Sunshine of Your Love" regularly in concert and several live recordings have been issued, including on the Royal Albert Hall London May 2-3-5-6, 2005 reunion album and video. Hendrix performed faster instrumental versions of the song, which he often dedicated to Cream. Several rock journals have placed the song on their greatest song lists, such as Rolling StoneQ magazine, and VH1. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame included it on its list of the "500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll".



Lyrics
It's getting near dawn
When lights close their tired eyes
I'll soon be with you, my love
Give you my dawn surprise
I'll be with you, darling, soon
I'll be with you when the stars start falling
I've been waiting so long
To be where I'm going
In the sunshine of your love
I'm with you, my love
The light's shinin' through on you
Yes, I'm with you, my love
It's the morning and just we two
I'll stay with you, darling, now
I'll stay with you 'til my seas are all dried up
I've been waiting so long
To be where I'm going
In the sunshine of your love
I'm with you, my love
The light's shinin' through on you
Yes, I'm with you, my love
It's the morning and just we two
I'll stay with you, darling, now
I'll stay with you 'til my seas are all dried up
I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting so long
To be where I'm going
In the sunshine of your love
