"White Room", written by Jack Bruce and Pete Brown, is a single by Cream from their 1968 album Wheels of Fire.

After bassist Jack Bruce wrote the guitar pieces, Cream's lyricist, poet Pete Brown, grouped colourful four-syllable phrases, loosely organised around images of waiting in an Englishmarker railway station influenced by the drugs he was taking. "White Room" is further noted for its unusual time signature of 5/4 in the introduction and bridge, with triplets played on toms by Ginger Baker, his thunderous bass drum part also lacing the verses. Finally, "White Room" is notable for showcasing guitarist Eric Clapton's best known use of the Vox Clyde McCoy Picture Wah in the bridge and extended solo.

Along with "Sunshine of Your Love" and "Crossroads", "White Room" is one of Cream's most notable songs, having reached number 6 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number 28 on the UK Singles Chart.

"White Room" was placed at #367 on the 2004 List of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

"White Room" is played after wins at Keyspan Parkmarker for the Brooklyn Cyclones.
