“Thunder Only Happens When It’s Raining, Players Only Love You When They’re Playing” – 10 Of The Greatest Fleetwood Mac Song Lyrics

Songwriting genius!

Earlier in the year news that music fans had been waiting for was confirmed, one of the greatest band’s in music history were reuniting and making new material.

It has been almost 50 years since Fleetwood Mac first got together. In the mid-70s the group intertwined business with pleasure, consisting of two couples, however as their professional career took off, the romance sadly did not.

Personal tensions and volatile relationships within the band went on to fuse every song on the Rumours record. Rumours transcended Fleetwood Mac as a moderately successful group into international stardom.

Kicking off with the phenomenal no.1 hit that claimed top spot on the US chart for 31 consecutive weeks, we take a look at the 10 greatest song lyrics from Fleetwood Mac.

1. Dreams

Thunder only happens when it’s raining, Players only love you when they’re playing…

2. Sara

Drownin’, in the sea of love, Where everyone would love to drown…

3. Second Hand News

One thing I think you should know, I ain’t gonna miss you when you go. Been down so long, I’ve been tossed around enough, oh, couldn’t you just let me go down and do my stuff?

4. Little Lies

If I could turn the page, In time then I’d rearrange just a day or two.

5. Landslide

I’ve been afraid of changing, ‘Cause I’ve built my life around you…

6. Beautiful Child

I’m not a child any more, I’m tall enough to reach for the stars.

7. The Chain

Listen to the wind blow, watch the sun rise. Run in the shadows, damn your love, damn your lies.

8. Don’t Stop

Why not think about times to come, And not about the things that you’ve done…

9. Gypsy

To the gypsy that remains faces freedom with a little fear. I have no fear, I have only love…

10. Go Your Own Way

Tell me why everything turned around? Packing up, shacking up’s all you wanna do. If I could, baby I’d give you my world. Open up, everything’s waiting for you.
