Musical Interlude: My Father's Eyes (1998)

Eric Clapton had actually written "My Father's Eyes" around 1992, which is when he began playing it in concert. It wasn't until six years later that it was released as a single, off the CD, "Pilgrim". "Eyes" peaked at #33 on the Hot 100, and #2 on the Hot Adult Contemporary chart.

Still gets healthy airplay today, just because it's Clapton at his introspective best, as the song is about the father he never met or knew.
