Throwback Thursday (on Friday)

After a recent eviction, a bout with homelessness/couch surfing and a summer of travelling around New England and the Midwest, A Brief Intermission is back! And seeing as its a Thursday, I'm coming back with a throwback for ya'll.

It had been a while since I listened to Rumours by Fleetwood Mac and then somewhere on the backroads of Northern Pennsylvania, we popped it on the iPod. Recorded amid personal turmoil, "Dreams" documents Stevie Nicks' tumultuous relationship with guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. The song is based on a dancey drumbeat, ambient instrumentation and beautiful vocal harmonies, especially during the powerhouse chorus.
