Band Name Origins:

  • Short for "Fleetwood McVie" for the drummer and bass player. Band founder Peter Green refused to name the band after himself, so it wound up being named after the rhythm section. Submitted by: Chrys Jordan
  • When the band started as a 4-piece they went by the name Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac featuring Jeremy Spencer incorporating the names of all of the band. Eventually it was truncated to the more catchy Fleetwood Mac. Thats what it says in the sleeve notes of the BBC recordings CD anyway. Submitted by: Matt

a parody of "Silver Springs" by Fleetwood Mac
Written in 2008, and recorded that same year, Dave's original performance was one of eh-let's get it over with. Revisiting all these classics is giving me lots of new fun ideas, not sure when I'm going to be ready to jump back in the fray, but this was a fun one this time around.

"Go Your Own Way"
Misheard Lyrics:
You can call it Anna of the day.
You can go your own way, don't go away!
Tell me why, everything was turning around.
Packing up, shacking up's all you wanna do.
If I could, baby I'd give you my would.
Open up, everything's waiting for you.
Original Lyrics:
You can call it another lonely day.
You can go your own way, go your own way.
Tell me why, everything turned around.
Packing up, shacking up's all you wanna do.
If I could, baby I'd give you my world.
Open up, everything's waiting for you.

If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills...
Why They're Nonsensical:
Snow doesn't reflect, Stevie. Your ex-beau could stare at those hills for the entire winter and never once see your reflection. Come to think of it, even if snow did reflect, the reflection he'd see would be his own, so what was the point of that line?

Lyrics Pronunciation:

The Lyrics:
When the rain washes you clean, you'll know
Stevie Nicks puts the stress on the second syllable of "washes" rather than on the first, which used to make me think she was saying "When the rain won't shoes you clean, you'll know," and I used to think it was funny.
