Review about Eric Clapton songs
Expressing a Broken Heart | Reviewer: Richard Zep Rodriguez
    ------ About the song THORN TREE IN THE GARDEN performed by Eric Clapton

It doesn't matter the age of a song, or even the who wrote it; but why. Thorntree in the garden represents the condition of a lover's heart: the garden is his heart. The thorntree is the experience of the broken heart. He latched on to a love that was to eventually go off and love others, leaving him only with the memory and the loss. He still regards her dearly and repeats his longing and how he misses her and seemingly would take her back. The tone of the music only assures us that the broken heart can never blame himself for the loss and must carry on. Gotta carry on.

Cirkus? | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Circus performed by Eric Clapton

When I was five my parents took me to the cirkus. It was disgusting. The clowns were ugly and scaring, the animals were reduced to uninteresting jokes and the people were silly.

Other than that, this song is good.

But I don't think children like the cirkus as much as they like going just about anywhere with their parents.

Don't promise your kids a thrill when all you got is a cirkus!

    ------ About the song After Midnight performed by Eric Clapton

I don't understand how all of you Clapton haters can spout the b.s. you're spouting.
1st - Clapton and J.J. Cale have been good friends and close musical friends for decades. Cale has written 6 songs that Clapton has recorded - only 6 out of the hundreds Eric has recorded. They just happen to be great tunes, which is a compliment for J.J. Cale, and a compliment for Clapton who recognized a great songwriter when he heard him.
2nd - Clapton is the writer of about 40% of the songs he has recorded, with the other 60% being written by other people. This is nothing new, and there is nothing and I mean nothing wrong with this approach, as long as the proper royalties are paid to the writers, and I've never heard anything of substance being reported that all those royalties and fees haven't been paid. Why would someone of Eric Clapton's stature ever take the chance and not pay what is properly owed to others.
3rd - The songs Clapton has recorded and played in concert that were written by others, such as J.J. Cale, has made those writers famous and wealthy in a way they could not have attained if Eric hadn't taken an interest in their music. Eric Clapton has helped many, many musicians and artists, and it has been as much for their benefit as it has been for Clapton.
4th - the constant argument about who is better: Hendrix or Clapton or Duane Allman or Buddy Guy or Dicky Betts or anyone else is a moot point. Playing guitar is not a competition, it is all about playing your style the best you can play it. Also, (and this is an important point), playing fast does not make one a great guitarist. Being great is about playing the "right" note, in the "right"' place, at the "right" time. Being fast is only one aspect out of 50 that goes into making a "great" guitarist. There's plenty of room for as many great guitarists as you want.
5th - J.J. Cale has nothing against touring, in fact he has been nearly constantly on the road for the past 45 years, it's just that he has not played many big venues. He's played mostly bars and night clubs and small venues all over the world. I heard him in Phoenix in 1998 at a small concert where he opened for Peter Frampton. There were probably 2000 people in the audience which would make it a small concert at most. J.J. Cale is a lot like Jerry Jeff Walker who never in his long career played for more than a few hundred people at a time, but will be known as one of the great American songwriters and performers.

Love it! | Reviewer: Silvia
    ------ About the song Sunshine Of Your Love performed by Eric Clapton

I love all Cream songs. Their sound is timeless. Amazing. But this one is by far my favorite. That guitar solo blows my mind! Not to mention the underlying riff is EXTREMELY catchy. Love it!!

Who give a crap if he is a Christian??? | Reviewer: Big Balls Billy
    ------ About the song Got To Get Better In A Little While performed by Eric Clapton

Seriously, who gives a crap whether or not he's a Christian??? He's a great guitarist and singer. Can't you just appreciate the music for the music???

Beloved Prayer | Reviewer: Sherilyn
    ------ About the song Holy Mother performed by Eric Clapton

I opened up a new CD I had laying about when I got home from a trip to spend time with my long-distance love partner . . . and found he'd been living with another woman while we were apart. This is the first song I heard and the first time I heard it. It is an exquisite song and was something to hang onto at the time.

so is he a Christian | Reviewer: LuAnne Johnson
    ------ About the song Got To Get Better In A Little While performed by Eric Clapton

Love the song, but really makes me wonder if he's a Christian. As he got older he put much more emphasis on praying to the Lord right now. Any ideas?

Holy Mother | Reviewer: Heino Bohlen
    ------ About the song Holy Mother performed by Eric Clapton

Dave Kennard: You named what it is about. THE BAND´S piano player
Richard Manuel was depressive and a very heavy drinker. He hanged himself in a Florida motel room after a concert the night before.
Ominous remarks to his bandmates weren´t understood at the time.
So this is what he may have thought before, hopefully, finding peace.
I found out just today after listening to Robbie Robertson´s " Fallen Angel ", which is about Manuel, too.
