Title: Classic 60's songs: Sunshine Of Your Love
Post by: Hombre_de_ningun_lugar on March 18, 2017, 04:05:26 PM
"Sunshine Of Your Love" is a blues-based psychedelic classic by Cream, written by Jack Bruce, Eric Clapton and lyricist Pete Brown. The song was released as a single in January 1968 in US (certified as a gold record), where it reached #5. In UK, the single was released later the same year with modest success, peaking at #25; but the British buyers had already had access to the track in the second album of the power trio. The record was clearly influenced by Jimi Hendrix, with Bruce's distinctive and repetitive bass riff, Clapton's burning guitar solo and Ginger Baker's peculiar drumming. The lyrics also reflect the spirit of those times. One of the most popular songs by the band and a mirror of an era.

Good song.  I've never seen a negative reaction to it.  Always works at any party.  Great guitar, drums, and bass.

Is there anyone whose picked up a bass or guitar and not played this? Probably one of the three or four fundamental riffs for a budding rock muso.

It's so ingrained that it's hard to see through it to the fact that it's also a good tune. Great performances all round.

Indeed, it was one of the first riffs I tried to play with my guitar when I was learning how to play the instrument.

I think the first time I heard that riff was in a Simpsons chapter when the 60's were evoked:
