Song of the Day #3,331: ‘Seven Wonders’ – Fleetwood Mac

Another act I regret excluding from the Montauk Madness competition is Fleetwood Mac. I own four of their albums (Fleetwood Mac, Rumours, Tusk and Tango in the Night) and I freaking love pretty much everything they do.

This was another unintentional oversight, like the exclusion of Ron Sexsmith. I have to be more careful about this stuff!

Fleetwood Mac is enjoying a resurgence in popularity, particularly among millennials. Whether it’s American Horror Story worshiping Stevie Nicks or bands like Haim channeling their warm 70s rock vibe, these guys are decidedly hip again. And deservedly do.

[Verse 1]
So long ago
Certain place
Certain time
You touched my hand
All the way
All the way down to Emmiline

[Pre-Chorus]
But if our paths never cross
Well you know I’m sorry but

[Chorus]
If I live to see the seven wonders
I’ll make a path to the rainbow’s end
I’ll never live to match the beauty again
The rainbow’s end
(Aaron)
(Aaron)

[Verse 2]
So it’s hard to find
Someone with that kind of intensity
You touched my hand, I played it cool
And you reached out your hand to me

[Pre-Chorus]
But if our paths never cross
Well you know I’m sorry but

[Chorus]
If I live to see the seven wonders
I’ll make a path to the rainbow’s end
I’ll never live to match the beauty again
The rainbow’s end
(Aaron)
(Aaron)

[Verse 3]
So long ago
It’s a certain time
It’s a certain place
You touched my hand and you smiled
All the way back you held out your hand

[Bridge]
If I hope and if I pray
Ooh it might work out someday

[Chorus]
If I live to see the seven wonders
I’ll make a path to the rainbow’s end
I’ll never live to match the beauty again
If I live to see the seven wonders
I’ll make a path to the rainbow’s end
I’ll never live to match the beauty again
If I live to see the seven wonders
I’ll make a path to the rainbow’s end
I’ll never live to match the beauty again
If I live to see the seven wonders

    This is far from my favorite Fleetwood Mac song, but I agree that they should have been included in the contest.

    I inextricably link Fleetwood Mac to the Clinton years. “Don’t Stop Thinking about Tomorrow” was as optimistic a campaign song as one could ever want.
