It's one of Lindsey's best. It's a kickóa funny Zevonesque way to gripe about the current state of things. Jackson Browne wishes he could have been so succinct and tone-aware.

There's no truth in my lies
There's no light in my eyes
And it's all I guess
That I'll ever miss


It's political in the best sense: a critique embedded in a good-natured, foursquare musical expression of conservatism.

The widespread dismissal of the song has always puzzled me. Maybe everyone really has gone to the moon.

I love both, actually. But the HAHTF Angel is appropriately disillusioned and mysterious, whereas the TUSK Angel is self-mythologizing and solipsistic (though VERY energetic and engaging). And the groove can just go on and on in a trance for as long as it needs to...

What's more mysterious than a ghost in the fog?

HAHTF (the album) is a bit of a slow-burner to appreciate, I think, and it took me a long time to really get to grips with it. I'm glad I did although I don't think I will ever come to terms with Silver Heels. Christine turns into Bob on Bad Loser, Bob's She's changing me almost sounds like a precursor to Say you love me- try playing them back-to-back to catch my drift, and Bob channels Albatross for Safe Harbour. Coming Home feels liberatingly free-form and has a great bass line here and there so I'm glad others rate it too.

I'm not absolutely sure that my choices aren't perhaps my favourites rather than what I might feel are the best, but it's my reality. So Stevie's only on four of the tracks? That's her look out... Nothing Without You (OK,it's a cover, like Mission Bell,but hey..) works best for me as it's the most inclusive of all the band's then personnel-- Christine is very prominent, and Lindsey guests as well.

I've played them in an order which makes about as much sense as I can make of them, and I'm cursing you-know-who for it not quite technically being a best of 18 album playlist.

Big Love
Behind the Mask
Woman of 1000 years
Closing my eyes
Gold Dust Woman
Hypnotized
Brown Eyes
I loved another woman
Rhiannon
Coming Home
Did you ever love me
Mission Bell
Say Goodbye
Love that burns
Spare me a little of your love
Love is here to stay
Nothing without you
Eyes of the World

but of course!

i love the lyrics, but melody and music is where it is for me in a song. and boring melody and music and performance and Nicks' nasal voice is making it drilling the holes in my ears and making them bleed. so while i LOVE slightly political Lindseylyrics (as opposed to all his regular love-whining), i can happily read it but i can't listen to this song. i mean Doing What I Can lyrics are as stupid and as lazy as they come right? but i adore the sound of the song and its tempo and its music.

Maybe you'd like to come away.

Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac - I Loved Another Woman
Mr. Wonderful - Stop Messin' Around
Then Play On - Before The Beginning (Oh Well is amazing but BTB is a stronger song all around. It's easily Peter's best work as a songwriter and one of the top Mac member written songs ever.)
Fleetwood Mac In Chicago - Like It This Way
Kiln House - One Together
Future Games - Future Games
Bare Trees - Dust
Penguin - Night Watch (This song never gets the credit it deserves. Bob's lyrics and vocals are so bittersweet. Peter's guitar work compliments Bob's words too. Just amazing and intuitive playing.)
Mystery To Me - Hypnotized/Why (I can't choose which is better. Why is a stronger written song but Hypnotized is wonderfully layered in its production.)
Heroes Are Hard To Find - Bermuda Triangle
Fleetwood Mac - Crystal (The song is the first real example of the infamous Fleetwood Mac sound. They were able to take a good song from the Buckingham Nicks album and make it even better.)
Rumours - The Chain (This song exemplifies Fleetwood Mac even though nobody knew they were doing it at the time. The message from it, the piecing together of several songs into one, the vocals and instrumentation.)
Tusk - Beautiful Child (Stevie's best writing for a Fleetwood Mac song. Lindsey's production pushes it even further.)
Mirage - Gypsy (If I were to pick one song that Lindsey "put on his back" and took to a level that nobody else could have, it would be Gypsy. NOBODY would have been able to make that song as good as it is. It would not be a classic had it been a Stevie solo effort.)
Tango In The Night - Little Lies (Based on the demos, Christine had a solid idea of what she wanted out of the song. Lindsey took it and did everything right to make it a hit and one of the band's most popular songs ever. I hope that one day somehow a true instrumental version finds it way to my ears.)
Behind The Mask - Save Me
Time - Winds Of Change
Say You Will - Destiny Rules
Extended Play - Sad Angel (An all-time great FM song that shouldn't have been Lindsey's last contribution with the band.)
Buckingham McVie - Carnival Begin

You're not the only one! It's not one of my all time favs but I like a lot of things about this song and it puts me in a good mood every time i hear it. The beat, guitar playing, backing vocals, lyrics, catchiness, etc. Never got why it comes up as one of people's least favorite songs on SYW when there's a fair amount of more offensive GARBAGE from both of them on that album lol.
