Cream – White Room (Leaping Ahead #245)

Leaping Ahead Project 2016 #245: 160901

[A song with colour (9)]

The lyrics for ‘White Room’ were written by a beat poet named Pete Brown, who was a friend of Cream bass player, the late Jack Bruce. Brown also wrote the words for “Sunshine Of Your Love” and “I Feel Free.” Bruce wrote the music inspired, he said, by a cycling tour that he’d taken in France.

It was a miracle it worked, considering it was me writing a monologue about a new flat as a euphemism for depression and hopelessness…(Pete Brown)
