I mentioned that they played GYOW on Discovery of Witches, although it was not Lindsey's version. After the tv series, I started reading the books and they also mention Fleetwood Mac and the popularity of the albums among witches. They talk about not only Stevie Nicks, but Christine's Over My Head too.

Here's an excerpt:

As if on cue, a strange metallic clinking and rolling started in the walls, like coins being fed into a jukebox. The musical grinding that followed, reminiscent of an old record player set to 33 rpm instead of 45 rpm, soon gave way to a recognizable song.

I cocked my head. “Is that . . . Fleetwood Mac?”

“No. Not again!” Sarah looked as if she’d seen a ghost. I glanced around, but the only invisible presence in the room was Stevie Nicks and a Welsh witch named Rhiannon. In the seventies the song had been a coming-out anthem for scores of witches and wizards.

“I guess the house is waking up.” Maybe that was what was upsetting Sarah. Sarah darted to the door and lifted the latch, but it wouldn’t budge. She banged on the wooden panels.

The music got louder. “This isn’t my favorite Stevie Nicks tune either,” I said, trying to calm her, “but it won’t last forever. Maybe you’ll like the next song better.” “The next song is ‘Over My Head.’ I know the whole damn album by heart. Your mother listened to it all through her pregnancy. It went on for months. Just when Rebecca seemed to get over her obsession, Fleetwood Mac’s next album came out. It was hell.” Sarah tore at her hair.

“Really?” I was always hungry for details about my parents. “Fleetwood Mac seems more like Dad’s kind of band.” “We have to stop the music.” Sarah went to the window, but the sash wouldn’t move. She thumped on the frame in frustration. “Let me try.” The harder I pushed, the louder the music got. There was a momentary pause after Stevie Nicks stopped warbling about Rhiannon.

A few seconds later, Christine McVie informed us how nice it was to be in over your head. The window remained closed. “This is a nightmare!” Sarah exploded. She jammed her hands over her ears to block the sound, then raced to the grimoire and flipped through the pages. “Prudence Willard’s dog-bite cure. Patience Severance’s method for sweetening sour milk.” She flipped some more. “Clara Bishop’s spell for stopping up a drafty chimney! That might work.” “But it’s music, not smoke,” I said, peering over Sarah’s shoulder at the lines of text. “Both are carried on the air.” Sarah rolled up her sleeves. “If it doesn’t do the trick, we’ll try something else. Maybe thunder. I’m good with thunder. That might interrupt the energy and drive the sound away.”

I started to hum along to the song. It was catchy, in a 1970s kind of way. “Don’t you start.” Sarah’s eyes were wild. She turned back to the grimoire. “Get me some eyebright, please. And plug in the coffeemaker.”

Heard Sentimental Lady (Bob's original version) in a restaurant yesterday and it was followed by Rhiannon. Must've been a theme. It was a Bel Air restaurant across the street from where I work. I had to wonder if Lindsey ever went there.

Many Joni Mitchell sightings in that area, as well.

Just heard Go Your Own Way on a Dodge Ram commercial that noted the truck was the official vehicle of the Kentucky Derby.

Rooms on Fire at a Black Bear Diner. (Do people know what those are? Basically a Denny's type restaurant.)

They're all over, but it still surprises me when I happen to be thinking about them at exactly the same time a song comes on. But since they are played probably once an hour at the very least on a lot of streaming stations, I guess it should not be a surprise.

Dreams and GYOW are etched into my psyche. I even hear them when other songs are playing with similarish lyrics.

Peter Green’s lovely voice:
Radio2 BBC played ....Man of the World.
Number two in the UK charts 50 years ago this week...

Number one was....Get Back The Beatles...oh my heart aches with memories.

Christine always talks about Man of the World. I love that song.
