Today's Happy Hour Soundtrack

Fleetwood Mac...

You are here and warm,
But I could look away and you'd be gone.
'Cause we live in a time,
When meaning falls in splinters from our minds.
And that's why I've travelled far,
'Cause I come so together where you are.

And all of the things that I said that I wanted
Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you
Fourteen joys and a will to be married
All of the things that you say are very...
Sentimental gentle wind, blowin' through my life again,
Sentimental lady, gentle one.
Ah, Former Happy Days... in more than one than one respect.  This tune is from the Mac's second incarnation, which is my favorite version of the band.  The Mac went through more personnel changes than most other bands but stayed relevant... successful, even... than bands facing the same trials and tribulations.  This is yet another opportunity for me to bemoan my lost vinyl, given all of my Mac albums were on vinyl (and I have them ALL).  It would cost me a small fortune to replace these albums on CD, if that could even be done.  I strongly suspect a lot of these albums are out of print.


  1. Did I ever tell ya that Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks went to the same HS I did?
    Do ya care?

    Yeah, I didn't think so.

  2. Oddly enough, nothing is out of print to the Pirate Fleets. It's all digitized but I suspect you can get anything you want from the tubes. Audiophiles were slaves to the music and started the whole pirating thing anyway!

    1. I suppose you're right, Curt, but what would I play the albums on? My mePhone? My desktop? While I'm not exactly an audiophile (e.g., those guys with $25K systems), I DO prefer listening to music on my stereo. I don't have anything connected to my stereo that can play MP3s.

  3. Funny, about half their stuff I really liked and the other half left me cold..

    1. I didn't like most things in the Buckingham/Nicks period. There were a few tunes that were OK, but not many.

    Buckingham could play lead as good as it gets, alas, I could only tolerate rock and roll lead guitars on maybe a monthly basis, and then it was back to Slovenian accordion...

    I'm currently in love with Katja's chubby sister... :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17Wj-V4OvZc

    1. alas, I could only tolerate rock and roll lead guitars...

      Heh. I feel the same about accordion music. But, that said, the sisters are lovely, indeed.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
