Monumental Soundbyte - 96


Eric Clapton - Wonderful Tonight
This beautiful song was released in 1977 and it was written for Eric Clapton's then love. Like Sting & The Police song "Every Breath You Take", this song is largely considered a romantic song.
But its actually not. Well it is. Its the reason for writing it that is less than romantic. Apparently, Eric penned this as he waited impatiently for his lady love to get ready for a shindig.
Nonetheless, it is an amazing song with 3 verses. Each of the verses is a different part of the evening and shindig they attend.
Excellent song - Enjoy

Eric Clapton fell in love with this woman while she was still married to his best friend George Harrison. He got the girl, and the hit single she inspired him to write.
