This week´s challenge is by Fleetwood Mac, and was chosen to honor the recenlty criticized Stevie Nicks. Who cares if she sand back up for the poorly matched Taylor Swift, Nicks is still the musical icon who gave us Landslide, a coming of age classic and the karaoke I am challenging you all to sing.
Landslide was written by Stevie Nicks when she was 26 and featured on Fleetwood Mac´s 1975 album. Many times Nicks has said she wrote the song in about 5 minutes, which is amazing considering it is one of the most heartfelt pieces of music about making choices and deciding where to go in life.
Which is exactly what Nicks was aiming for. "I was trying to figure out what I was going to do. I wasn't making it big in the music business. I was confused. [My father] told me I should give it about six months and I kind of agreed with him…" Nicks told Arizona Living in 1983, explaining the deep nature of the song.
