You said that you love me
And that you always will
Oh you begged me to keep you
In that house on the hill
Looking out for love
Big, big love
yesterday we had a recommended song from Sako. that recommendation manifested into an email chain with fellow Fleetwood Mac fan, Nairi a.k.a. A Most Excellent Human. now I have commentary from both of them, track by track, and I thought it would be fun to share with the Internet because who doesn’t love being a critic?
"Big Love" comes from their 1987 album Tango In The Night, the last album recorded by the most successful lineup of Fleetwood Mac: Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood (according to Wikipedia). what do our friends Sako and Nairi have to say about Big Love?
Sako: I kinda love this song. it has the funk and guitar riffs of the eighties. plus an almost never ending sexual sequence towards the end… haha. it’s a fun song.
Nairi: I agree with Sako and I also like the funky guitar song. It’s not a personal favorite though.
Me: the combination of 80s vibes and “ohh! ahh!” is maybe why I don’t take this song too seriously as the opener of an album that also contains ‘Everywhere’ (WHICH APPARENTLY IS A POINT OF CONTENTION AMONG US?!?!), but I gotta respect the fingerpicking of Mr Lindsey Buckingham on this one.
