Song of the Day #2,140: ‘Think About Me’ – Fleetwood Mac

fleetwood_mac_tuskLots of 70s bands are viewed with a smirk these days, their sound hopelessly dated. But Fleetwood Mac has remained cool since their heyday. In fact, right now they’re cooler than ever.

Indie darlings Haim at times come across as a Fleetwood Mac cover band, so closely do they mimic the style of their idols. Stevie Nicks is treated with reverence in her many TV and concert appearances. Christine McVie’s recently announced return to the band has been celebrated.

This respect and admiration is well-deserved. Fleetwood Mac’s sound is effortless and timeless. Even listening to songs I don’t know at all, like this cut from Tusk, I’m instantly comfortable.

All it took was a special look
And I felt I knew you before
Didn’t mean to love you
Didn’t think it would work out

But I knew we would be together
And I couldn’t wait for more
But what can they say
It’s not against the law

Chorus
I don’t hold you down
Maybe that’s why you’re around
But if I’m the one you love
Think about me.

I believe that you really want me
But it’s not easy, just to give in
So let yourself go, and let love begin.

    If they go on tour, I would love to go, as I have never seen them in concert.
