Some music :)

The song Badge, written by Eric Clapton and George Harrison. Especially recognizable is the short guitar refrain written by George.

I helped Eric write Badge you know. Each of them had to come up with a song for that Goodbye Cream album and Eric didn't have his written. We were working across from each other and I was writing the lyrics down and we came to the middle part so I wrote Bridge. Eric read it upside down and cracked up laughing - 'What's BADGE?' he said. After that, Ringo walked in drunk and gave us that line about the swans living in the park.
- George Harrison: George Harrison performs on Badge by Cream

Here's the original Cream version ...

And here it's performed by Eric Clapton at the Hartford CT Civic Center, on May 1st, 1985 ...
