Cocaine (err... the song, that is)

Ok, so here’s another iconic Tune That I Love, by the now 69 year old legend, Eric Clapton.

Eric Clapton - Layla

This song definitely makes it into the “Jazzmin Fotherby Top 10 Greatest Songs of all Time” awards, if not for it’s flawless craftsmanship, for it’s sheer awesomeness alone. 260 more words
