Song of the day: Derek & the Dominos- Layla
An early seventies song today! The song was written by Eric Clapton and Jim Gordon, both members of Derek & The Dominos. It was inspired by a Persian story about a love between Layla and Majnun, but since the father of Layla has forbidden to marry her, the love is unanswered and Majnun goes crazy. This moved Eric Clapton, who was in love with the wife of George Harrison at the time, which was a one-side love. When released in 1971, the song had no success at first. Later, it became one of the best rock songs. In 1993, the song would be in the hit charts again, because of the Unplugged-session from Eric Clapton. Enjoy
