    I'm Having A Stevie Nicks Kind Of Day

    First song I heard on the car's radio this morning was "Dreams" by Fleetwood Mac. Last song I heard on the car radio at the end of the day: "Edge of Seventeen" by Stevie Nicks. It was a good day.

    So now at home I'm listening to some of Stevie's lesser known songs. They make up the poll attached to this thread. And if you're saddened that her bigger songs are not mentioned, here's the "Obvious" list that got sorted out from the poll options:

    Rhiannon
    Landslide
    Dreams
    Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around (with Tom Petty)
    Leather and Lace (with Don Henley)
    Edge of Seventeen
    Gypsy
    Stand Back
    Talk To Me

    Two songs that did not make the poll as they were not singles or were not on any studio albums of Stevie's which you should listen to immediately are:

    Kick-Ass cover of Tom Petty's "I Need To Know"

    Power ballad "Somebody Stand By Me" from Boys on the Side soundtrack

    Really rare demo: "Cathouse Blues"

    Demo version of "Storms" from the Tusk album

    A Sunday Kind of Love
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    So are you marking Stevie Nicks day by running around in a top hat and platform boots?

    I didn't vote, because I've always felt that Christine McVie could sing circles around Stevie's raspy voice...

    Peter, thanks so much for starting this thread! Regarding running around in a Top Hat and platform boots - I never did that but I did used to "wear boots all summer long." That, of course, is a phrase from Stevie's song, Nightbird.

    I voted for everyone of the songs. Here's a few other songs I love of Stevie's. I decided to stop searching because this would be a really long post after I finished adding all of them.

    Nightbird

    Nightmare

    Rock A Little

    Stevie's lyrics to her songs can also be found at her website, Rock A Little.com

    Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You

    Gypsy

    Landslide

    Two Kinds of Love

    Long Way To Go

    Ooh My Love

    Alice

    Juliet

    Rooms On Fire

    Gate and Garden

    Stand Back

    Outside The Rain

    How Still My Love

    Street Angel and Violet and Blue! How could I forget those two. It also reminded me of Blue Denim

    Thanks numbers123 and my little pony.

    Landslide. I performed this at the Dixie Chicken in College Station. With two backups. I think it was even before the Dixie Chicks. I love this song and can do at least two of all three way harmony. Though I love the lead.

    I love Stevie Nicks too.

    A good day is you doing all three harmonies to this song. It keeps you on your toes.

    I didn't realize that you performed! I think that's great. I really love Landslide. I remember watching Stevie on Story Tellers from VH1 many years ago. She said she wrote the song for her Dad.

    What about Sleeping Angel?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cDkR...feature=fvwrel

    I grew up in the 70s/80s and Fast Times at Ridgemont High was a huge influence. Sleeping Angel really gets Stacy's character.

    Love Stevie.

    Beauty and the Beast is my favourite by her. Have choreographed numerous dance bits to it, never a skating one.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    I voted Sara, but I wouldn't call it an underestimated song. Was it ? Thanks PeterG for opening this thread. The funny thing is, a few days ago, I had some kind of Stevie Nicks urge, logged on to iTunes and stocked up on Fleetwood Mac and on her solo albums. Must be a seasonal thing

    Doesn't anyone have her newest CD from last year, In Your Dreams??

    It's EXCELLENT - everyone go out and buy or download this today, and then you can return to this thread.

    The other one very much worth digging up is Buckingham/Nicks - the record she made with Lindsay before Fleetwood Mac. I've always had the vinyl, but a few years back there was a CD issue that included another 10 or so rare songs - just beautiful and very much worth hunting down.
