Like most people who make a living by writing about pop culture, I spend a lot of time on the web sifting through a multitude of crap searching for a golden nugget of story to bring to you. When my brain turns to mush after hours of looking at fan-made Anime videos, I turn to the folks at Mental Floss for what I like to call a Mind enema, that will flush away all those toxic images of the world wide web and make me feel like a human once again.
And this particular gift from MF is all about the fascinating stories behind some of the greatest songs written (which is particularly potent against any remaining memories of the newest porn craze, Bigfoot erotica, let me tell ya).
So pull up a chair and head into a world where we once and for all finally learn what Cream’s White Room was all about.
