“Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac

October 9, 2014


It’s Throwback Thursday! Today’s #tbt song is one of my favorite songs of all time by one of my favorite musical groups of all time. This song was originally released in 1975 on the self-titled album, Fleetwood Mac. 

Growing up, Fleetwood Mac was my favorite group and I knew every word to every song … actually I still do.

I decided to post a song from them today because they just started a reunion tour (On With the Show) and everyone is back this time, including Christine McVie. Earlier this week, the band played at Madison Square Garden and, although I was not able to attend, I am dying to see them perform live during their reunion tour. If I was picking one band that I have always wanted to see live, they would be at the top of my list. It sounds like I will be lucky because, just this morning, they announced that they are expanding their reunion tour and adding 28 more shows, including a return to NYC. If you are an American Express holder, it sounds like tickets will be available on October 13; otherwise, they go on sale October 20. I plan not to miss it!

After listening to them perform live today on the Today Show, I have to admit that I still love Fleetwood Mac and their music. It was a difficult decision to choose just one song by them because they have so many good ones, but I have always loved this incredible song. They lyrics have such deep meaning and emotion and I love the guitar rhythms – just an awesome song. I also have to say, Steve Nicks’ voice is still as amazing as ever.


SONG OF THE DAY – “STOLEN” by Dashboard Confessional

Happy Election Day!  It has always been my feeling that if you don’t use your privilege and obligation to vote, then you don’t have a right to complain. Therefore, every time I move, I immediately get registered to vote – just in case I want to complain. 😉 When I woke up this morning, however, I realized that I was not planning to vote today.  I am not making a political statement … I just honestly don’t know what or for whom I am voting.  I have lived in this town for such a short time (just 3 months!) and the system is completely different from anything I have ever known.  What is a Selectman? I have never even heard that term before! How can I just go to the voting booth and vote for names of people who I know nothing about for positions of which I have never even heard? So, instead of casting a vote today, I decided to personally cast my vote for most memorable election song.  Without a doubt, that song for me would by “Don’t Stop” by Fleetwood Mac, used by President Bill Clinton. I grew up loving Fleetwood Mac and I remember how excited I was by their reunion for Clinton’s inauguration.  For me, it was the perfect words to the perfect song and it generated such excitement and hope for the future.  Would anyone else like to cast a different vote?  I would love to hear your choice of most memorable election songs.  Hope your woman or man won today!
