Music Monday: Dreams, Fleetwood Mac

Music Monday, Seventies
Fleetwood Mac band from the 1970s

This week’s Music Monday is all about “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac. Memphis idolizes Stevie Nicks and challenges her abusive husband early on in the story to sing this very song. I’m a huge fan of this legendary band and especially Stevie Nicks herself. This song is one of their mainstream hit songs and one of my personal favorites.

Lyrics

Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well, who am I to keep you down
It’s only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully
To the sound of your lonelinessLike a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost
And what you had
And what you lostThunder only happens when it’s rainin’
Players only love you when they’re playin’
Say women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know
You’ll knowNow here I go again
I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself
It’s only me who wants to wrap around your dreams
And have you any dreams you’d like to sell?
Dreams of lonelinessLike a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost
And what you had
Ooh, what you lostThunder only happens when it’s rainin’
Players only love you when they’re playin’
Women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know
Oh, thunder only happens when it’s rainin’
Players only love you when they’re playin’
Say women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know
You’ll know
You will know
Oh, you’ll know

Nice to Meet you! My First Post.

Book Excerpt, Book Review, Holly Dolly, Memphis Novel, Music Monday, Parenting, Seventies, Womens Issues

Hi there, I’m so happy to write my first blog post for my brand new author website! I think this is the best opportunity to lay the groundwork for what types (genres) of posts you can expect from me on here. This platform serves mostly to educate and promote my third child -my novel “Memphis”, HOWEVER it will be a secondary writing outlet for me to discuss women’s issues that I care about deeply.

Not just the sad stuff, but some RAD stuff as well! Expect posts on women’s issues, parenting, single motherhood, following your dreams and the power of visualization and intent. Finally, in my true style and fashion, expect some pretty sweet posts about the 70’s and 80’s era’s including flashbacks along with mentions of my favorite band ever -Fleetwood Mac.

So yea, it will be all over the place in terms of topics but if you like what you’re reading so far, you’ll love my book “Memphis” that includes all of the above. Please comment and offer feedback of any sort as I’m just starting out and value your opinion and individual requests.

Much love,

Holly May.
