Classic Rock Songs For Valentine’s Day Featuring “Layla” By Derek and the Dominos [VIDEO]

Derek and the Dominos, YouTube

You could say this is Eric Clapton’s alter ego, Derek but however you slice it “Layla”, is one of the, if not the; most famous love song of classic rock. A song written for Patti Boyd who was married to George Harrison at the time this all went down.

The inspiration of the song was that of a 12th century poem of a girl (you guessed it) named Layla and dealt with her unrequited love.

I tried to give you consolation

When your old man had let you down..

Like a fool, I fell in love with you,

Turned my whole world upside down.

It can be found on the 1970 album ‘Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs’.

You can find it on CD, Vinyl LP and MP3.

The attached video features, along with Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck plus many other rock stars (see if you pick them all out).
