Bell Bottom Blues
...you made me cry. That's what Eric Clapton says in the appropriately titled track. Honestly, I never got this song. Was it about a pair of bell bottoms? Or was someone wearing bell bottoms terribly blue? Apparently, English model, photographer, and rock n' roll muse Pattie Boyd inspired Clapton to write it. She just had to have an American pair of bell bottom "blues" or jeans. My sister linked me in to the spot for that perfect pair of bell bottom blues, by Emersonmade. Pattie Boyd (pictured above) may not be my muse, but I visualize her looking a bit like this in hers.
