Fleetwood Mac - Tango In the Night - 1987


 So, I blame this one on my parents.  I'm busy listening to Duran2, Cure, New Order, Punk, Hard Rock, 80s Synth, Post Punk, EVERYTHING, but late Classic Rock/Adult Contemporary.  In my wildest dreams, I would've never listened to an album like this, let alone own one.  But, as a teen still living with my folks, a lot of the time I was forced to listen to their music (sorta like I do to my kids now) and they both thought this was a pretty good album when it came out.  For the longest time, I thought it was a 70s album, being ignorant of Fleetwood Mac in general.  Why would I bother to know the facts?

So, several years back, I got nostalgic for this album.  Remembering my parents listening to it, and I recalled a lot of the tunes.  To learn it actually was an 80s album was somewhat shocking to me.  I thought most of them were dead by then or something (even now, none of them are dead.  Stupid, stupid man)  To also learn, while searching for the b-side material, that there were remixes of their songs was even more surprising.

The b-side songs and remixes are rather meh.  But, if you are a completist, it doesn't matter.  I'm pretty sure I have it all here.  There might be a remix or two that didn't make the cut, I can't remember.  But, there's more than enough here to make you feel like you've had enough by the time the disc is done.

It IS solid material, just not always my style.  As I said, it's a nostalgia thing.  But, to each his own, some of you may absolutely love this one....

  1. On here especially, Christine is the shit. The public always thinks of Lindsey and Stevie first. But the best singles were always Christine's.
