Clapton told Uncut magazine August 2014 that he believes this heartfelt declaration of love is the best tune that he's ever recorded. "That's my favorite song, and it's also current, because I wrote it about my wife," he said. "I like the fact that it's kind of low-key, a little in-the-background thing, but I'm proud of that song, as much as anything of mine that's more popular or well-known."
Eric Clapton married American-born graphic artist of Korean-Irish parentage Melia McEnery in January 2001. The couple met in 1998 after McEnery approached the guitar legend for an autograph at a party in LA thrown by Giorgio Armani (she was working for the fashion designer at the time).
