Cream - I Feel Free




Cream were a British rock power trio formed in 1966 consisting of drummer Ginger Baker, guitarist/singer Eric Clapton and lead singer/bassist Jack Bruce. The group's third album, Wheels of Fire (1968), is the world's first platinum-selling double album. The band is widely regarded as the world's first successful supergroup. In their career, they sold more than 15 million records worldwide. Their music included songs based on traditional blues such as "Crossroads" and "Spoonful", and modern blues such as "Born Under a Bad Sign", as well as more current material such as "Strange Brew", "Tales of Brave Ulysses" and "Toad".


The band's biggest hits were "I Feel Free" (UK number 11). "Sunshine of Your Love" (US number 5), "White Room" (US number 6), "Crossroads" (US number 28), and "Badge" (UK number 18).


The band made a significant impact on the popular music of the time, and, along with Jimi Hendrix and other notable guitarists and bands, popularised the use of the wah-wah pedal. They provided a heavy yet technically proficient musical theme that foreshadowed and influenced the emergence of British bands such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath in the late 1960s and the early 1970s. They also influenced American southern rock groups the Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd. The band's live performances influenced progressive rock acts such as Rush.





Lyrics


ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, I feel free. [x8]


Feel when I dance with you,

We move like the sea.

You, you're all I want to know.

I feel free, I feel free, I feel free.


I can walk down the street, there's no one there

Though the pavements are one huge crowd.

I can drive down the road, my eyes don't see,

Though my mind wants to cry out loud.


I feel free, I feel free, I feel free.


I can walk down the street, there's no one there

Though the pavements are one huge crowd.

I can drive down the road; my eyes don't see,

Though my mind wants to cry out loud,

Though my mind wants to cry out loud.


Dance floor is like the sea,

Ceiling is the sky.

You're the sun and as you shine on me,

I feel free, I feel free, I feel free.
