Landslide By Fleetwood Mac

Recommended Posts

So I've been in love with this song the past couple of weeks and i was thinking that even though it isn't my favorite song of all time, i think it might be the best lyrics written. I like the fact that you can understand what the song is about but the lyrics are kinda cool and mysterious. Specifically the part i highlighted. What do you think of the song and lyrics??


I took my love and I took it down

Climbed a mountain and turned around

And I saw my reflection in the snow-covered hills

'til the landslide brought it down

Oh, mirror in the sky -What is love?

Can the child within my heart rise above?

Can I sail through the changin'...ocean tides

Can I handle the seasons of my life?

I don't know.....I don't know

Well I've been afraid of changin'

because I've built my life around you

But time makes you bolder, even children get older

And I'm getting older too....

So, take my love...take it down

Climb a mountain and turn around

and if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills...

well the landslide will bring it down

The landslide will bring it down

Ya fleetwood mac has some good songs, but there best song is an acoustic song off "Rumors" that the guitarist sings. Its incredible guitar work.

The Dixie chicks version was okay (nice harmonizing) but it paled in comparison to the greatness of Stevie Nicks (she is a goddess). I remember when the Smashing Pumpkins version came out I really liked it because I've always liked the Fleetwood Mac version and none of my friends liked it! They were like Fleetwood who?


As for the above quote. Is the song you're talking about called "Never Going Back Again"? I agree about the guitar work. Lindsay Buckingham is the greatest guitarist ever (in my opinion)
