  • "Anyone for Tennis" is a song by the British rock band Cream. It was used as the theme song for the 1968 film The Savage Seven and is titled "Anyone for Tennis (Theme from the Savage Seven)" for the soundtrack album. The subtitle was dropped for Cream's single releases. Guitarist Eric Clapton wrote the song for the 1968 film The Savage Seven. It was his second collaboration with lyricist Martin Sharp (their first was "Tales of Brave Ulysses"). According to biographer Michael Schumacher, Clapton was unable to find a melody that suit him, despite expending considerable time. The song was recorded during the sessions for Cream's third album, Wheels of Fire. However, it was released on The Savage Seven soundtrack album and as a single instead. Backed with "Pressed Rat and Warthog", it reached number 64 on the American Billboard Hot 100 in May 1968 and number 40 on the UK Singles Chart in June 1968. Cream mimed the song during their promotional appearance on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in May 1968 with a video middle section in which the band carry tennis rackets. "Anyone for Tennis" is included on several Cream compilation albums, including Strange Brew: The Very Best of Cream (1983), The Very Best of Cream (1995), and the boxed set Those Were the Days (1997). It is also included in the Clapton boxed set Crossroads (1988).
