The Daily Cut: Fleetwood Mac “Dreams”

Fleetwood Mac: “Dreams”

ALBUM: Rumours

YEAR: 1977

WRITER: Stevie Nicks

Amazingly, Fleetwood Mac’s only number-one single in the U.S.

Bassist John McVie explains that “Dreams” began as a minimal Stevie Nicks demo. He describes that recording and how the song grew out of it. “The demo of that is quite interesting. It’s Stevie sitting at a piano with two fingers going bom-ding, bom-ding, bom ding-ding bom. And that was the demo and then she had the lyrics and the melody and we just sort of played along and flowed into it.”

The “Dreams” single was certified gold for a half-million sales 40 years ago today (September 14th, 1977).
