Born Under a Bad Sign

Written by the late bluesman Albert King, this was the first version I ever heard. I've always loved it.

I think Eric Clapton qualifies as someone with bad enough luck to play this. ;)

I agree w/ Anonymous...the acoustic version of Layla is the pits.

But I must say when I hear the line "born under a bad sign" I think of the next line, "with a blue moon in your eyes" from the Sopranos theme song, "Woke up this morning" by Alabama 3.
