Song 318 (Eric Clapton--"My Father’s Eyes")
I don't think that my Clapton week would be complete without this song. This is one of his songs that I instantly fell in love with and helped make me a Nathan East fan with that excellent bass line, which carries the song. The slide guitar solo is quite nice; it is another one of my favorite aspects of the song. From what I understand this song was written about Eric Clapton's father and how he never knew him. It is such a beautiful song and definitely in need of being chosen.
Here is the studio version on YouTube.
