Rumours

Posted in music by adeli on June 12, 2008

On this day in 1977, the No. 1 Billboard Pop Hit was Dreams. The band was Fleetwood Mac. And the album was Rumours. Rumours topped the charts for about 30 weeks, and won the Grammy for Album of the Year. It’s made it to Rolling Stone magazine and VH1’s Top Albums lists, among others.

Fleetwood Mac is comprised of the founder, Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie, and John McVie. The lead vocals often depended upon who wrote the song; and for the most part, it was Stevie, Christine, or Lindsey.

Below is the track list as it appeared on the original vinyl version of Rumours, along with who sang each tune. Click on song titles for videos or performances. My favorite tunes off Rumors are Second Hand News, Never Going Back Again, and The Chain.

Side One

1. Second Hand News (Buckingham)
2. Dreams (Nicks)
3. Never Going Back Again (Buckingham)
4. Don’t Stop (C. McVie)
5. Go Your Own Way (Buckingham)
6. Songbird (C. McVie)

Side Two

1. The Chain (Nicks, Buckingham, C. McVie, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood)
2. You Make Loving Fun (C. McVie)
3. I Don’t Want to Know (Nicks)
4. Oh Daddy (C. McVie)
5. Gold Dust Woman (Nicks)
