Album of the Day # 42:
Mirage (1982) - Fleetwood Mac
Song playing: Can’t Go Back
** here’s album 2 of the 4 I will be posting tonight **
~ Fleetwood Mac is one of my all time favorite bands. I’m still SO upset that they fired Lindsey Buckingham. That’s why, when I pulled out this album tonight, I thought I was going to play Gypsy, one of favorites by Fleetwood Mac. However, I’ve been on such a Lindsey kick and my bias is definitely showing against the rest of the band. I’m totally team Lindsey on this whole feud. Therefore, I decided to play one of the songs Lindsey wrote, Can’t Go Back, which is also one of my favorites! Lindsey is hands down my favorite FM member at the moment, even though he’s technically not even in the band. I feel like Lindsey is so underrated, and it’s totally unfair. He deserves way more recognition. I’m so excited to go see his solo tour before his year ends... but anyway, enough about my Lindsey obsession... I’ll get back to the album. Though this is probably not the first album to come to mind when you hear Fleetwood Mac, Mirage is still a fantastic album that hit number 1 on the charts in the US and number 5 in the UK. This album contains many hit singles that all reached within the top 25 on the charts such as Gypsy (# 12), Hold Me (# 4), Love in Store (# 22), Oh Diane (# 9), and also Can’t Go Back which didn’t perform as well, but still peaked at # 83. This album is one of my favorite by FM and definitely worth the listen. I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoy every song on this album. I highly recommend this record.
My dog makes an appearance at one point, and I thought it was too cute to not keep in the video 😄
