Continuing my list of suggested songs for the next season of Stranger Things…
1987 saw the release of Tango in the Night, Fleetwood Mac’s 14th studio album and their second best-selling record (after 1977’s Rumours).
Given the continued relevance and success of Fleetwood Mac, I think the Stranger Things team could do a lot worse than to feature one of their songs.
Has a lineup change ever had a more profound effect on a band than the addition of Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks to Fleetwood Mac?
Before Buckingham and Nicks joined the band, Fleetwood Mac released ten albums over seven years, and most music fans wouldn’t recognize a single song from that span. Or at least not the Fleetwood Mac version — they did write and record ‘Black Magic Woman,’ which was a hit for Santana.
Continuing the chronological presentation of my 25 favorite songs…
‘Tangled Up in Blue (Demo)‘ – Bob Dylan (1974)
This song is one of two selections on my list of 25 that refers to a specific version different from the official release. To be fair, Bob Dylan’s ‘Tangled Up in Blue’ would certainly make this list in its initial full-band Blood on the Tracks incarnation as well.
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!
