Thanks Jeremy. This should be good.
Thanks for all that you do!

I am glad I did not buy the remastered version because I keep hearing such bad things about it. It sounds like the original is so much better.
Enjoyed this and I agree with Jeremy that Bad Journey is one of the best tracks. We could have an entire thread or discussion dissecting this fabulous song. This song holds many mysteries like the album name which would not peak that much interest until she said it was so personal to her that she refused to discuss it. Wow. That's heavy! I have a slightly different take on Bad Journey. Many random parts of the United States are mentioned which could imply her 'bad journey" of touring with the Mac. But no doubt when you read the lyrics there is a major relationship here. OMG
First lets put out the random places in the United States that are mentioned

Hidden Hills - exclusive gated community of Los Angeles near Santa Monica
Boise, Idaho - northern rocky mountain city the Mac opened their Tusk tour at
New York City -
Mexico -
Key Biscayne - island off Miami. Sort of exclusive but anyone can drive there. The Mac had roots there way back to the Bob Welch era. I seem to remember something that Bob Welch had a boat there and is where he got his inspiration to Bermuda Triangle. I think John McVie may have sailed there too. During the Rumours era when parts of it was recorded in Miami, the band did hang out here
Gitche Gumee - means big sea or huge water and which refers to Lake Superior in the United States. Its one of the great lakes and even Gordon Lightfoot references it in his hit song "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald"
New Orleans -

The places she references are so intriguing and imagine she must have been to each of them to know about them. Did she go sailing with Dennis on Lake Superior?

Now lets move on to the mystery man. She is really calling him out



So I picked myself up, 'cause I put myself down
And I get in my car and drive around
No matter what was said, what that you did
All that's behind me now
'cause I'm moving on


Saw my dreams of love
As distant as the mountain tops
And just as far away beyond the point
Where I am today


Everything was looking good
Just like it should
Trusted you with all my heart
Never dreamt you'd tear me apart


The crazy relationships she had with John and Dennis. She never wrote such harsh word about them "tearing her apart."

OUCH. She's really hurt and letting him know that. Unlike other Chris songs she wants to turn the other cheek and still be in love. Not here.

I do agree that this album has a roller coaster of love and hate. We get a love song You Are and then Liar.

Chris is a completely different kind of writer than Chris. Stevie always said she could never write pop songs or "singles." That was Chris's perfection. But don't we get some Stevie-esque writing on this album? The mystery and relationship innuendo and much more intriguing.

I disagree with one panelist who thought the writing on this album was weak. I just see it a different style she had used before. We get classic McVie with songs like Friend which really sounds like a Mac song. But we get some intense mystery writing with songs like Bad Journey.

I found the one panelist who is not a big McVie fan with the Mac (loves Stevie) interesting when he said that Anything Is Possible is his favorite McVie song of all time. That shows that this remote album really has reached different people in different ways.

I love this album.

Whoa - talk about a huge error in me calling the song "Taking It Back" instead of "Giving It Back" - that's the one song I never listened to as much. Still, embarrassing on my part.

I love the dissection of "Bad Journey" above - intriguing to read. This is such a great album for sure.

You're fired! I'm taking over the show. And we will only discuss things as they relate to Christine.
