Fleetwood Mac-- Pure Genius
8 July 1999 | by Miss SSee all my reviews

Currently, I am watching Fleetwood Mac's "The Dance" Reunion concert. And-- what? It went through tracks 1-3 in order, then to 5, now to 10. But I remember other songs being there. I don't know. I just wish they would've put "Gold Dust Woman" on the CD. It's an absolute exorcism. Stevie just wails out the end, just screams it out. Then she walks over to Mick and she extends her arm up into the air. So great.

Oh! I just noticed something! During "You Make Loving Fun", Christine looks to the side at *somebody* and gets this smile on her face as she sings. I bet she's looking at Eddy (her husband). What ruins the song a little-- I've finally figured it out! See,

I've always thought "You Make Loving Fun" was a good song, but something about the live version irked me. I've figured it out-- Stevie's backup singers sing in it. I don't find thier voices all that great. I FORGOT!! CHRISTINE SINGS "OVER MY HEAD" IN THIS!! But the backup singers do a little ditty in it. This is one of my favorite Christine songs. But I guess I can kind of see why they didn't put this on the CD.

A)Backup singers B)Too much drum sound C)It's short D)It lacks a middle sound. There's something missing from it. Good song. Screwed up in that particular performance. But they still should've put "Gold Dust Woman" in there.

They left "Gypsy" off the CD too? Okay, this better have something in it to justify cos "Gypsy" is one of the better. Hey this version has Lindsey singing in it, so that's pretty cool~ and I think it's the only song form the Mirage album that they play in this.

Okay I am also noticing that they cut Lindsey's explanation of "Big Love" beforehand. Oh well, the song MORE than makes up for it. This song had *THE* guitar part. It is absolutely amazing to watch him play.

Wow, it's amamzing the things you notice. I should watch this more often. "Big Love" is Maggie's song. I swear, the dog twitched right along with the music as she slept-- it was great. My dog was dreaming about Fleetwood Mac. You know you've had success when that happens.

Now, of course, we have "Landslide". What is amazing about Stevie, is that even at 51, she still looks young. Granted, she's not as skinny anymore, but that's another thing I like about her. For once, a female singer in a band does not have to be thin to be beautiful and to be given regard. This woman has paid her dues. They all have. Look however you want, Stevie. And you have never heard a crowd cheer so much as they do when Stevie and Lindsey hug after Landslide.

Ahh... Now we're to "Temporary One"-- the new Christine song. They cut her speaking bit in it, oh well. Again, it's made up for. This one they tend to swing out with crowd shots, as they often do with Christine songs. :(

"Silver Springs" is such an odd key to sing along to. I've tried it so many times, and I can never get it to where it sounds decent. Of course, my voice isn't phenomenal either, but still!! Stevie can quite easily pull it off, as only she can. It is a very beautiful song, and it is fitting that they picked as a single off this album.

Hmmm... noticing that they cut out some of the intro to "Go Your Own Way" on the CD. Why? It's a whole extra, what, 10-15 seconds? Big Deal There!!

You know what's cool about Tusk? 1)Christine plays the accordian in it!! How cool is that? 2)It's tribal sounding. Granted, it's more tribal sounding with the studio version, but it's still there for the Dance. But, man, got to love the accordian. That right there makes anyone who ever said the accordian was a dorky instrument, a prime canidate for a mental evaluation. Christine-- You go with that accordian!! Where? I don't know! Go here! :) I love it.

And finally, there is "Don't Stop". This, right here, totally shows the genius of Christine McVie. If there were a song that Fleetwood Mac would be most widely known for, it would be "Don't Stop". Christine wrote it, but I don't think she gets enough credit for it. Most people don't even realize that she sings in it. That's what I used to think when I was younger hearing the song, before I even knew who FM was. Her voice *is* quite low, so I guess to the untrained listener... well you get the point.

Anyhow-- "Don't Stop" is a masterpeice, but I have to be in the mood to listen to it. You can't listen to a big booming symphony all the time, anytime. Sometimes you have to take things quietly.
