If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It ~ There are plenty of other ways to waste your energy!

Fleetwood Mac is just one of my favorite groups from the 60's. That's right I said 60's. They existed long before their Rumors album came about. That was 1974 and before the Lindsey Buckingham era there was Peter Green

 A lot of artists and their bands have covered this song. Oh Well. and whether you like Leo Kottke and Mike Gordon, The Black Crowes, Jimmy Page, Haim, The Rockets, Lindsey Buckingham or Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers versions does not matter. The point being that they've all benefited from using a song that works and has a great track record. Not a remix but just enough individuality added to differentiate themselves from each other while remaining true to the original.

I'm sure that most of you have played "Whisper Down the Lane" at some point in your life and have laughed hysterically at the end result. This happened because the focus diminishes as the message passes from one to the next. Pay attention to the success of the initial components and improve on them only when applicable. Real Estate is a lot like that too!

We used to play the gossip game in our youth group. Worked like "whisper down the lane". On one end a person was give a couple of sentences to say and by the time it got to the last person it was nothing like what was originally said. lol

It's got a couple of names Alan and can teach excellent lessons regarding gossip use. That insight has a lifelong benefit.

Larry, I look at AR as an untapped resource that has not fulfilled its potential but has several of the necessary ingrediants already in the recipe.

Loud music and huge amplifiers did a number on our memories Gabe. At least Peter Green kept the lyrics easier to remember on this one!

A little Rock & Roll is sometimes better than coffee to get the juices flowing in the early hours. Thank you for passing through!

Ahhhh, the 60's, it was a great era, wasn't it?  I didn't think they were broke but the 70's ad 80's and every year after has changed it.  Now I just don't recognize music anymore.  I hope ActiveRain doesn't follow those changing footsteps.

The tone and the tempo may change but if you listen hard enough to today's sound you'll catch pieces of our youth entrenched within. Not so much in the lyrics though that's an entirely different subject Evelyn.

Fleetwood Mac remains a great band today.
