Players Only Love You When They’re Playing

I love em…Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac Dreams Lyrics
Songwriters: Nicks, Stevie;

Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down
Its only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness
Like a heartbeat.. drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost…
And what you had…
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when its raining
Players only love you when theyre playing
Say… women… they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean… youll know

Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself
Its only me
Who wants to wrap around your dreams and…
Have you any dreams youd like to sell?
Dreams of loneliness…
Like a heartbeat… drives you mad…
In the stillness of remembering what you had…
And what you lost…
And what you had…
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when its raining
Players only love you when theyre playing
Say… women… they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean… youll know

FORMED: 1967, London, England

While there are those that would argue that one of the greatest bands in rock & roll has never been away . . . while there are those who would insist the group is alive and well, as long as somewhere in the world, someone is playing a copy of Rumours . . . while no one could contest that Mac music sounds as fresh and full of surprises today as it did the moment it was minted . . . all this, and more, considered ­ The Mac is still back.

“Mac,” in this case, of course, refers to the once-in-a-lifetime line-up of talent that single-handedly defined the term “supergroup” now and forever. Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham are, and always will be, The Fleetwood Mac of recordscores of millions of records as a matter of fact, spanning one of the most wildly successful, and endlessly inventive, creative conspiracies in modern musical history.

It’s a saga that continues with the Reprise Records release of The Dance, the new Fleetwood Mac album that gives fresh meaning to the term “long-awaited.” Recorded live for an MTV special, The Dance highlights new renditions of 13 Mac classics, from “Dreams” to “Rhiannon,” “Don’t Stop” to “Tusk” as well as the such key tracks as “The Chain” and “Silver Springs.”

Proving the Mac magic is as potent as ever, The Dance, produced by Lindsey Buckingham and Elliot Schiener, also features four new songs, including the Christine McVie composition “Temporary One,” “Sweet Girl” by Stevie Nicks and two new Buckingham tracks, “Bleed To Love Her” and “My Little Demon.” Catapulting straight from the studio to the stage, Fleetwood Mac embark on an extensive U.S. tour this fall, bringing the Mac magic to audiences coast to coast.

After a moment to catch our collective breath, it’s fitting to note that the reunion of Fleetwood Mac is occurring on the twenty year anniversary of Rumours, the most influential and innovative album of their career, and an enduring landmark of the rock era.

But Fleetwood Mac redux is about more than simply a fond look back. It’s about artists and writers, musical spark plugs and men and women of amazing ability, picking up precisely where they left off, minus a mound of emotional luggage and with, as Mick Fleetwood puts it, “an incredible amount of creative gas in the tank.”

Not that Mac’s individual components have been experiencing anything like a fuel shortage since they last recorded together, ten years ago. While the rock solid rhythm section of Fleetwood & McVie continued to lift high the venerable Fleetwood Mac banner with various incarnations of the group, Lindsey, Stevie and Christine have all nurtured brilliant solo careers, as well as working in various combinations on one-off projects, such as the Stevie/Lindsey collaboration on the hit 1995 Twister soundtrack. And, while it might have taken a special request by the President of the United States to reconvene the band for an appearance at the 1992 Inaugural Ball, performing Clinton’s campaign song, “Don’t Stop (Thinking About Tomorrow),” the notion of a full-blown reunion has been in the air almost from the moment they disbanded.
