    Let's see if Eddie ever lurks here.... Pick your 10 favorite Eric Clapton songs everyone. Here's my list:

    1. Layla (I know it's overplayed, but I simply love this tune. I love the passion in this one. E.C. was falling in love with George Harrison's wife when he wrote this. And the passion and intense desire practically drips off this performance.)
    2. Bell Bottom Blues (A lesser know gem from EC. This song has a personal story in it for me...I hold it sacred.)
    3. Bottle Of Red Wine (Love this tune...always have. Another lesser known song)
    4. Running On Faith (This one brings a tear to my eye it's so beautiful)
    5. White Room ( An overplayed cream song, but for good reason. this song KICKS!)
    6. Born Under A Bad Sign (Not an E.C. original, but this one from Wheels Of Fire is AMAZING!)
    7. Pretending (off of Journeyman. God this one cooks)
    8. Cocaine (Although a J.J Cale song, E.C. sent it to new places. I love this one)
    9. Blues Power (This is such a great song. I love it)
    10. Crossroads (A Robert Johnson original from the 1930's. What can I say that hasn't already been said about this one. E.C. and Cream smoke on this cover!!!)

    How about everyone else's favorite E.C. songs....? Eddie how about your input.... ?

    Not necessarily in any order:

    Easy Now

    Let It Grow

    The Core

    Let It Rain

    Tales Of Brave Ulysses (Cream)

    Bell Bottom Blues

    Wonderful Tonight

    Bad Love

    The Circus Left Town

    Lonely Stranger

    I love Clapton! I bought my first guitar, a blackie Strat, just because I knew he played one just like it...

    BC: That's cool, man! BTW, I still have my ol' blackie Strat - I play it every day. I've hot-rodded it a bit but I haven't cut it. It's like an old comfortable pair of shoes... I could never part with it

    Very cool Rokgstar! I am a big Clapton fan too and always just loved the classic Fender Strat sound. Plus I am big on the black and whit color scheme! Course what I really want now is a Wolfgang, but I need to get some more $$$$ saved up first!
