Cream of Rock
Cream – Songs of Freedom

Classic Rock band Cream have re-released their hit song “I Feel Free” after 35 years. Its not exactly an anthem for the off-grid life, but it certainly expresses one major part of the philosophy.

Cream Eric Clapton (guitar, vocals), Jack Bruce (bass, vocals) and Ginger Baker (drums) formed in 1966 and dispanded in 1968. In a little over two years, they released four groundbreaking albums and secured worldwide acclaim and success with their unique take on electrified blues. Cream sold 35 million albums and last played together in 1993 when they were inaugurated into the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame in Los Angeles. They produced some of the most enduring rock anthems including I Feel Free, Sunshine of Your Love, Strange Brew and Crossroads.

Beginning as imaginative blues revivalists, Cream quickly evolved into a riskier unit, mining an audacious assortment of jazz, folk, pop, blues and psychedelic elements. Cream made adventurous, original music that reflected the restless energy of its era, yet continues to resonate nearly four decades later.

I Feel Free – Lyrics

By jack bruce and pete brown

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.
