Here are the backstories behind some of Eric Clapton's songs, in many cases in I thought, 'well, if you sit down and write a song in a formatted way, it's not so hard. “I thought I had discovered three new chords that man didn't know about.
On March 20,Clapton's 4-year-old son Conor died after falling from the 53rd-floor window of a New York City apartment belonging to Conor's mother's friend. He dealt with the grief of his son's death by cowriting "Tears in Heaven" for the soundtrack with Will Jennings.

I have got a great deal of happiness and a great deal of healing from music.

I really wrote that song to try to kind of cheer myself up. I felt like an English exile trying to beat the odds. It did not make it onto the official album. So I wrote this song about that. It was the last one that I could let go of.
NSU Jack Bruce once claimed in an interview that Ginger Baker wrote this and that it was named after a sexually transmitted ailment non-specific uritinitis that one of the band supposedly had at the time.
The liner notes from the album Fresh Cream, however, give song writing credit to Jack Bruce! You've got to let go. You've got to move on. It was very painful but I was obsessed with the notion that it would come to fruition if I just stayed there long enough.
I had somewhere to live. I was actually having a good time after leaving Cream, feeling very secure. I was in a great frame of mind. In an interview, he was asked what the song was about. In fact, it became the standard for the rest of the album. My impulse for writing the song was initially very manipulative.
It had a purpose. Then it started getting vindictive and at some point I started feeling like the lyrics were becoming too melodramatic. That whole thing in the song about just drifting from town to town and not really being able to fit in, takes the blame off somebody else and places in on myself.

All of a sudden, Bruce played the now-famous bass riff. It was a song of belief. When it talks about there will be no more tears in heaven, I think it's a song of optimism What was worrying me was I hope to God we didn't meet up in some kind of heaven hotel lobby and just walk by one another," Eric recalled. From the 5 April Australian 60 Minutes interview.

I needed the film to finish it, because otherwise, I probably would have let it go. I really wanted to be able to say something about what happened to me and the opportunity that this movie presented me was excellent, because it meant that I could write this song and express my feelings and have it come out quickly. After the song was done, I thought that it would be nice to put it out as a single as well. They were running very late and Pattie insisted on trying on every outfit in her closet to find the perfect one.
Can we go now? The original version appears on no less than 5 Clapton albums: Some of the above versions have also been issued as extra tracks on CD singles or on compilation recordings by various artists. Another live version of "Wonderful Tonight" was included on the video of In Concert: All this stuff started coming up like it did for everybody.
And I had this feeling I wanted to actually place it somewhere where I felt it really belonged. And so I took it to a relationship that I have been involved with, myself, for the last 25 years, which is with my manager.
