      Indeed and there is.

      I always loved that line
      “Won’t you lay me down in the tall grass
      And let me do my stuff”

      Even as a kid I used to think , did he, an adult male actually sit down and write that down and then sing it?
      It doesn’t sound like he’s taking the urine either

    I like Go Your Own Way for the song itself and the added pathos of the back story.

    1. Slightly Bemused

      I have often wondered what was going through their heads the first time they performed that.

      1. B9 Com From No

        Their performances of those songs even now are sometimes astonishing.

        Well I know Lindsay isn’t gigging with them right now but I mean if you look at some of the more recent acoustic stuff on youtube etc

        Such incredible artistry. I always just figured that they had already been through so much together, and their life was their music, the only difference is they were still living out aspects of it on stage.

        As Bob Dylan sings ” a lot of water under the bridge, a lot of other stuff too”.
        I often wonder how Buckingham’s wife and kids feel watching that stuff though.

    Landslide, every time.

    It’s a beautiful song with a lovely sentiment behind it and one of my daughter’s favourite songs. I sing it to her at bedtime and now I associate it with an extremely precious time of day.

    1. Slightly Bemused

      Although not a Fleetwood Mac song, I do love the Stevie Nicks song Sorcerer, probably most notably featured in the wonderfully retro Streets of Fire :)

      Gipsy is a great song too!

    I got to see them at the recent TribFest in Maynooth. They are really good, well worth the price of a ticket if you like the original Fleetwood Mac.

    I have to admit my favourite song is Albatross, followed closely by Man of the World. A very good friend of mine used play Albatross on his guitar and lamented that he could not get it right (I could not tell the difference). Then he learned that they use 2 guitars and felt so much better. I worked in a lot of countries, and the same friend made me a mix tape to take with me, and one of the songs was Man of the World.That tape cheered me up in a lot of dark places.

    Having grown up in the Lindsey Buckingham/Stevie Nicks era, I still love some of the original line up’s songs, but it is hard to beat Landslide.

  4. B9Com From No

    I’m going to go for “Say you Love me” ( even though for personal reasons Landslide often makes me start blubbing)

    What I particularly like about Christine’s songs is how personal, direct, profound and yet simple they are. I mean you could pick almost any of her songs and they all have that quality e.g. Little Lies, Everywhere etc

    But Say You Love Me has those other wonderful qualities of her best songs which are humility and vulnerability.

    “When the loving starts and the lights go down
    And there’s not another living soul around
    You woo me until the sun comes up
    And you SAY you love me … “ she begins

    But by the end it’s
    “If you use me again it’ll be the end of me”

    Astonishing

      Another incredible song! Thank you for reminding me – I will be listening to it soon!

    The Chain – its a class tune, so far, so good. But then the pause just after the fade out of “keeps us together…….” and the basline kicks in and its all formula-1-head-shaking-running-on-the-spot-air-guitaring action

    1. Slightly Bemused

      Just listened to this again. Law of unintended consequences: Nick mentions a quiz and I get to listen to one of my favourite bands again. Thank you for all the wonderful reminders of great songs!

    The Ledge.

    The fantastic upbeat bouncy tempo of the song contrasting to when you finally give the lyrics a proper listen always gives a sweet sense of ambivalence.

  7. Spaghetti Hoop

    Win STEVIE Nick’s Free Tix, surely?

    So many great tracks – I could list five in a row that I love.

    How about The Chain. Running in the shadows…..

  8. Cool_Hand_Lucan

    “Rome’s On Fire” by Stevie Nicks is a beautiful catchy tune. The lyrics are a bit vague though because I was never sure if she was referring to the reign of Nero or one of the many sackings of Rome.

    1. Slightly Bemused

      Some of her and their best songs are not the ones that hit the charts. That’s why their albums were always such a great investment!

  9. Slightly Bemused

    I once met a roadie who had worked with them back when Lindsey and Stevie joined. The band had sought out Lindesy for his guitar skills, but he would only join if Stevie came with him (they were a duo at the time). Apparently Mick Fleetwood was not keen on the idea but really wanted Lindsey Buckingham. Then he saw Stevie in her first concert, and all his fears were gone. I have tried to find out what her first song on stage was, but so far, no luck.
