Alphabetical List of Songs by Eric Clapton

During the early years of his career, Eric Clapton contributed very few songs to the various bands he played with. He preferred to fill his albums with cover songs because, as he says today, he was unwilling to reveal himself beyond what could be determined from the music and his guitar playing. Over the years, Eric Clapton evolved into a master songwriter and has been inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame (U.S.).

When writing, Clapton has said he keeps things abstract so a listener can identify with the song and apply it to their own life. He said, “I am very much an emotional writer. I don’t really know how to tell stories or make social comments about the state the world is in or even to be… to have any idea of how to suggest anything that would be better you now. I have to be naked and I have to be vulnerable and I have to let things… and I have to let myself feel anything. I think the thing is that what my records are about, especially this one (Pilgrim), is how much care you can take with making something sound good.” (From a 1998 BBC interview)
