"Silver Springs" by Fleetwood Mac

"Silver Springs" by Fleetwood Mac

  • Backstory: In what is old news for Fleetwood Mac fans, the bandmates had complicated romantic relationships back in the day, to say the least. It caused a lot of drama, and as a result, they had plenty of emotional material. "Time casts a spell on you, but you won't forget me. I know I could have loved you, but you would not let me," Stevie Nicks sings in "Silver Springs," one of Fleetwood Mac's most iconic songs recorded for the group's 1977 album Rumours.  
  • Evidence: Nicks has been candid about the subject. In 1998, Nicks said she came up with the idea for the song when she and bandmate/lover Lindsey Buckingham "were in Maryland somewhere driving under a freeway sign that said Silver Spring, Maryland. And I loved the name . . . Silver Springs sounded like a pretty fabulous place to me. And, 'You could be my silver springs . . . ', that's just a whole symbolic thing of what you could have been to me."
  • Verdict: As is the case for many of the group's hits, Nicks wrote the song about her bandmate, Lindsey Buckingham.
