Photographer Unknown, (In a White Room)

“White Room” is a song by British rock band Cream, written by bassist Jack Bruce and poet Pete Brown. Drummer Ginger Baker claims to have added the distinctive 5/4 opening to what had been a 4/4 composition. It originally appeared on the US release of their double album Wheels of Fire in July 1968 and was released as a single in September 1968. It is one of their most famous songs, along with Sunshine of Your Love.

“In the white room with black curtains near the station
Blackroof country, no gold pavements, tired starlings”
