Cream - Sunshine of your love - Royal Albert Hall 2005





The lyric was written by Pete Brown, a beat poet who was friends with Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce. He also wrote lyrics for "I Feel Free" and "White Room." Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce wrote the music.


"Sunshine of Your Love" is a song 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.


Recording engineer Tom Dowd suggested the rhythm arrangement in which drummer Ginger Baker plays a distinctive tom-tom drum rhythm, although Baker has claimed it was his idea. The song was included on Cream's second album Disraeli Gears in November 1967, which was a best seller.


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.






Lyrics


It's getting near dawn,

When lights close their tired eyes

I'll soon be with you my love,

To 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 shining 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 till my seas are 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 shining 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 till my seas are 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
