Clip Of How Fleetwood Mac Made The Song ‘Dreams’ Is Blowing My Mind Right Now
Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours is one of the best-selling albums in history. It’s gone ‘diamond’ in multiple countries. It has sold over 40 million copies worldwide since it was released on February 4, 1977. Rumours won the Grammy Award for ‘Album of the Year’ back in 1978, a time when the Grammy Awards still mattered, meant something, and awarded good music and not just commercially viable garbage.
Below, the dude behind the massive ‘Nerdwriter1‘ YouTube channel put together this quick but in-depth clip which shows how ‘Dreams’ got made on the Rumours album. From the time when Stevie Nicks first presented the demo of the song to the completed form. It’s wildly fascinating to see how a timeless song which appears to be relatively simple on paper can turn out to be so complex:
Chances are you’ve come across the Nerdwriter1 YouTube channel before. It has nearly 2 million subscribers and views on each video range between 500K to 1+ million. But, if you haven’t seen any of these videos before and you enjoyed the one above then I encourage you to check out some of the others like ‘Why Apple Needs Samsung‘ and ‘Norm Macdonald is a Comedic Genius‘.
My apologies if you’re now going through the day with the songs from Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours stuck in your head. Obviously, the only rational thing to do here is drive around town and blast that album as loud as you can to try and get it unstuck from your head.
