I was going through my "saved" list and this post was in there. Great song! Fleetwood Mac is an unappreciated band imo. Lindsay Buckingham is a badass! He's still making great music, check out this song called The Right Place to Fade released in 2008.
Also, Stevie Nicks had it going on back then, didn't she?!
Interesting tidbit about the song that I picked up from Wikipedia:
- In 1980, the year after the song was released, Stevie Nicks was sued for plagiarism by Carol Hinton of Rockford, Michigan. In latter months of 1978, Hinton had written a song called "Sara", which she had sent to Warner Brothers, Fleetwood Mac's recording label. The lyrics in Hinton's song and Stevie Nicks' song were similar. Both shared the lines, "Drowning in the sea of love" and "When you build your house, call me." Stevie Nicks defended the lawsuit by proving that she had written and recorded a demo version of the song in July 1978, months before Hinton sent her lyrics to Warner. Eventually, Hinton gave up, accepting that Nicks had not stolen her song
