memories of the ’70s – Dreams by Fleetwood Mac

Image result for dreams by fleetwood macFor this Brit-American band, Rumours was a milestone and for the first time Fleetwood Mac hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts with Dreams.

Releasing their 11th studio album in February 1977, the band’s second single was Dreams released after Go Your Own Way.

Written by Stevie Nicks, the song wasn’t immediately liked by the rest of the band, but her persistence and the collaboration transformed Nick’s draft to be a song included on the album.

Reflecting the tumultuous emotion of the band, as Nicks was breaking up with fellow band member Lindsay Buckingham, the song’s lyrics reflect one person reminding another of what they had together.

Now here you go again, you say
You want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down
It’s only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness...”

Released on March 24, 1977, Dreams made a steady climb up the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and on June 18, 1977 hit number one, the first for the band.

Selling over a million copies as a single, Dreams was soon followed by the next single You Make Loving Fun, as well as a strong push by Warner Bros., which had its largest advance to date for an album with Rumours.

And as the album kept selling, the songs kept being played endlessly on US radio, and are still part of the playlist of the 1970s on rock radio across North America.
