Almost all of the music up on PeakStupidity is stuff that wasn't the most popular back in it's day. There is so much good music from the era we feature that isn't widely known, so I'd rather put those youtube videos up.
This one is an exception. We featured a Fleetwood Mac album cut called Blue Letter back in January. However, to further prove my point (end of the post) about the value of a good bass player, this song, "Say you Love Me" was very popular in 1975, peaking at #11 on the good old Billboard chart.
Though Fleetwood Mac consisted of 5 members, repeated here,
Lindsay Buckingham - vocals and guitar
John McVie - bass guitar
Mic Fleetwood - drums
Christy McVie - vocals, piano
Stevie Nicks - vocals
the McVie's with Mr. Buckingham's guitar ARE the band on a lot of their best songs.
I maintain Christine McVie had a better voice than the more famous (hotter, perhaps, is the reason) Stevie Nicks. On this song, Christy McVie sings this one and plays piano, while her husband John McVie has great bass lines (I like the sliding parts). Lindsay Buckingham adds a great guitar sound too.
How good would this song be without John McVie's bass? I say, not nearly as good. This one rocks.
More regular posting will continue tomorrow. We're not out of ideas but haven't been in a position to put up pics and there hasn't been enough time to compose a post.
