LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM NEVER GOING BACK AGAIN


Written by Lindsey Buckingham

She broke down and let me in
Made me see where I’ve been

Been down one time
Been down two times
I’m never going back again

You don’t know what it means to win
Come down and see me again

Been down one time
Been down two times
I’m never going back again

 

Stevie Nicks – After the Glitter Fades



Written by Stevie Nicks.

Well I never thought I’d make it
Here in Hollywood…
I never thought I’d ever
Want to stay…
What I seem to touch these days
Has turned to gold…
What I seem to want
Well you know I’ll find a way

For me… it’s the only life
That I’ve ever known
And love is only one…
Fine star… away
Even though the living
Is sometimes laced with lies…
It’s alright…
The feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades

The loneliness of a one night stand
Is hard to take
We all chase something
And maybe this is a dream
The timeless face of a rock and roll
Woman… while her heart breaks
Oh you know… the dream keeps coming
Even when you forget to feel

For me… it’s the only life…
That I’ve ever known
And love is only one… fine star away
Even though the living
Is sometimes laced with lies…
It’s alright…
The feeling remains…
Even after the glitter fades

For me… it’s the only life
That I’ve ever known
And love is only one fine star away
Even though the living
Is sometimes laced with lies
It’s alright…
The feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades
Oh you know… the feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades
Oh the feeling remains…
Even after the glitter… fades  

Stevie Nicks/Lindsey Buckingham – Soldier’s Angel (In Your Dreams; 2011) (The war is dead: Long live the war!)


STEVIE NICKS
“Soldier’s Angel”
 

I am a soldier’s angel
Through the eyes of a soldier
Through the eyes of a soldier
I am a soldier’s mother
Through the eyes of an angel
I am a soldier myself
And no one walks away
From this battle

I’m a soldier myself
In the presence of angels
I am a soldier’s widow
In the background at night
I am a ghostly shadow
As I follow close behind them
I try to push them gently
Back into the light

I am a soldier’s angel
Four years later
In a war of words between worlds
Mmmmm
About what is wrong
About what is righteous
I am a soldier’s girl

I am a soldier’s memory
As I write down these words
I try to write their stories
And explain them to the world
I float through the halls of the hospitals
I am a soldier’s nurse
I keep the tears inside
And put them down in verse

I am a soldier’s angel
Four years later
In a war of words between worlds
Mmmmm
About what is wrong
About what is righteous
I am a soldier’s girl

I am a soldier’s girlfriend
As I look upon their faces
They make me remember my first love
And going out to dances
They make me remember Camelot
And being young
And taking chances They make me fall in love again
They give me all the answers

I am a soldier’s angel
Four years later
In a war of words between worlds
Mmmmm
About what is wrong
About what is righteous
I am a soldier’s girl

I’m a soldier in their army
They are the soldiers of my heart
I try to make them smile again
Though it tears me apart
Their bravery leaves me spellbound
I… try to be a small part
Of bringing them back again
They are the soldiers of my heart

I am a soldier’s angel
Four years later
In a war of words between worlds
Mmmmm
About what is wrong
About what is righteous
I am a soldier’s girl

I’m a soldier’s angel
Through the eyes of a soldier
Through the eyes of a soldier
I’m a soldier’s mother
Through the eyes of an angel
I’m a soldier myself
No one walks away
From this… battle 

 

Fleetwood Mac – “DREAMS” (Stevie Nicks) With Lyrics



Dreams” is a song written by singer Stevie Nicks, for the group Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 album, Rumours. The song was the only U.S. number one hit for the group, and remains one of their best known songs.

Nicks wrote the song at the Record Plant studio in Sausalito, California, in early 1976. “One day when I wasn’t required in the main studio,” remembers singer Stevie Nicks to Blender, “I took a Fender Rhodes piano and went into another studio that was said to belong to Sly, of Sly & the Family Stone. It was a black-and-red room, with a sunken pit in the middle where there was a piano, and a big black-velvet bed with Victorian drapes.”

“I sat down on the bed with my keyboard in front of me,” continues Nicks. “I found a drum pattern, switched my little cassette player on and wrote ‘Dreams’ in about 10 minutes. Right away I liked the fact that I was doing something with a dance beat, because that made it a little unusual for me.”

When Nicks played the song to the rest of the group, they decided to record it the following day. Only a basic track was recorded at Sausalito. Recording assistant Cris Morris remembers that “all (they) kept was the drum track and live vocal from Stevie — the guitars and bass were added later in Los Angeles.”

Dorothea Lange (1895)

Lange was a profoundly influential American documentary photographer. During the Great Depression, her photos of stark poverty led to her employment by a federal agency to bring the plight of the poor to public attention. Her images were so effective that the government was compelled to establish camps for migrant laborers. Lange produced several other photo essays, including one documenting the WWII internment of Japanese-Americans. Who is the subject of her best-known photo, “Migrant Mother“? More… Discuss
