Probably myself.

I was moving this weekend so I did a lot of listening to the radio since it was the only form of entertainment I had hooked up. We had 2 radios going. My wife was listening to country downstairs and I was listening to "the best of the 80s, 90s and today" upstairs.

I swear to GOD there was not one minute of the day that that song wasn't playing on one of those radios.

crossover songs

The worst part of it was the first time I heard it, I started singing a long a little and my wife was shocked I knew the words. "You know this song? Its country! You hate country!"

cover songs

Let me just add- if I see the damned video of this song one more time, with that brunette chick's huge protruding stomach ("Look! I'm pregnant! I'm PREGNANT! Oh, I'm PREGNANT.") and that soft focus lighting, intended to, I don't know, bathe them in a heavenly effervescent glow........I'm going to kill something.

And pop the damned kid already! Sheesh.

Exactly.

[...Fleetwood Mac memories still in tact.]

Because I don't listen to the radio much, I haven't heard this often, but I don't think it's that much different from the Fleetwood Mac version (or, heck, the Smashing Pumpkins version). Which of course raises the question of why cover it in the first place, but that's the subject of another thread...

I hate this version as well. I don't even have to listen to the radio to hear, or even voluntarily watch the country channel. I seem to find it by just flipping through the channels EVERY SINGLE TIME.

IMO the smashing pumpkins version is even more superior than the original though.

That's what I don't get? Hell, even Fleetwood Mac's version from "The Dance" reunion cd was on the charts not even five years ago. Seems a bit soon for another cover of it.

I saw the last 4 seconds of the video while flipping through channels.

And that's why I never ever ever listen to radio. I'd rather listen to silence.

Well I heard it over lunch again. All I heard was "...andsli..." but it was enough.

Goodbye cruel world.

*BOOM*


This is Charles' boss. His last words were "Hit the submit button". Do you people know anything about this?

While suicide is always an option, there's no need to get so worked up just because you cannot see your reflection in the snow covered hill.

I practically dropped dead when I seen Stevie perform this with the Pixie Hicks at the AA meeting famously known as Divas Live. Stevie might be back on the happy pills again.
