Thunder only happens when it's raining, and Strong Songs only crams two songs into an episode when it's super warranted.
This episode warrants just such a pairing, with a focus on two tunes by the great Fleetwood Mac. First there's the collaboratively written group-sing stomper "The Chain," and then comes Stevie Nicks' heartbeat anthem "Dreams." Both were featured on the band's classic 1977 album Rumors, and both have more than stood the test of time.
"The Chain" was written by Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie, and John McVie.
"Dreams" was written by Stevie Nicks.
Album: Rumors (1977)
