"I couldn't believe it was her. It was like a dream. But there she was just like I remembered her. That delicately beautiful face. And a body that could melt a cheese sandwich from across the room. And breasts that seemed to say: 'Hey! Look at these!' She was the kind of woman that made you want to drop to your knees and thank God you were a man! Yeah! She reminded me of my mother, all right. No doubt about it."

"I couldn't believe it was her. It was like a dream. But there she was just like I remembered her. That delicately beautiful face. And a body that could melt a cheese sandwich from across the room. And breasts that seemed to say: 'Hey! Look at these!' She was the kind of woman that made you want to drop to your knees and thank God you were a man! Yeah! She reminded me of my mother, all right. No doubt about it."

Note: Layla was on the album and got heavy airplay but was not nominated for any Grammys
The official Grammys site disagrees.

I brainfarted and thought "Tears in Heaven" was the obvious choice, so I went with "Layla." I just looked it up and "Layla" DID WIN. But the category was "Best Rock Song."
