8. 'White Room'
Cream's 1968 song "White Room" is one of the most famous songs of Eric Clapton's entire career, but when the group first recorded the track, it got very mixed reactions. They didn't even include it on Disraeli Gears in the fear that it sounded too similar to "Tales of Brave Ulysses." They came to their senses about eight months later and put the song on Wheels of Fire. It became a global Top 10 hit and has been played on classic rock radio roughly forty billion times since.
