Because she wanted Silver Springs to be on the record. It was too long for the running order, and was replaced with IDWTK. And she's never wanted to do it live, afaik.

There was an intresting thread on the Rumours forum a while back. It was essentially that I Don't Want to Know was a Buckingham ghost write. The premise being they needed a short feel good uptempo song to make the flow of the album and Stevie needed another credited song on Rumours. From the lyrics being very Lindsey esque including reusing the Lindsey favorite crutch lyric of "down the line" to the demo / early versions being a Lindsey lead vocal.

Yes I do remember that. It was written back in the Buckingham Nicks days and Iím sure it was co written by both but to the point made above Stevie was given all the credit for the Rumours release.

I don't believe LB wrote IDWTK. That is pure Stevie. My dream concert would have been them open with that song. Start off with a bang. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE the Chain. BUT I would have loved a concert opener with this. SN and LB singing together start to finish.

A 1-2 punch of Second Hand News and I Donít Want to Know wouldíve been great on one of the 2003-13 tours.

Yes, it is a BN song that was credited to Stevie long before Rumours.

I despise Never Going Back Again. I hate that they wasted space in their 2015 Sydney, Australia set by playing that song. Anything else would have been better... but Oh Daddy is just as bad. Love I Don't Want To Know though.

Stevie wrote it but didn't? Someone made her write lyrics in a style she had never used before and hasn't used since.

Now you tell me that I'm crazy
It's nothing that I didn't know


I think someone was standing over her (like a Don Henley svengali) and pushing that self-effacing kiss-off tone into her lyrics. That just is not her by herself, wrapped in her own prismatic world. That's not how she talks about herself and that's not how she talks about other people. I also doubt that "You got me rockin' and reelin' " came out of her little faerie brain, either.

The song is very rhythmic. The way the words nestle into the groove is un-Stevielike. I bet the music kind of came first (from her or whoever) and then someone worked with her to "fit" wry, self-effacing lyrics about a rough patch in love into the musical structure. Stevie didn't just sit down by herself and hatch this thing as is.

I also think that, whatever was happening to get the song on paper, it's very obviously a lyrical backseat - to the rhythm and the two-part harmony, which must have been worked out (much the way we hear it on the Rumours demo with Lindsey doing a scat vocal) with the two singers in a room together. The whole thing was built with the vocal harmony in mind, not just presented in finished state to a production person, with someone present suddenly having the bright idea to add a harmony.

WOW! I never gave it that much thought but....ok. All I know is I heard I Donít Want to Know on the radio back in February 1976 and the feast is history. The song got me hooked!
