Default Songs That Remind You Of Stevie & Lindsey?

I've seen a lot of these on youtube. People putting together slideshows of rock's most famous couple to different songs. What songs remind YOU of their relationship? I always think of them when I listen to Cool by Gwen Stefani. I hope they really are with each other

Rock's most famous couple? Really? We know them, but I'm not too sure they'd be considered first among most people. I think you'd have to look to Sonny & Cher, Ike & Tina, Kurt & Courtney, Mick & Marianne, John & Michelle, John & Yoko, ABBA and several others.... (Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale???)

I wouldn't call some of the couples mentioned by you really "Rock" couples, but when I was bored at university in the library I looked at many of these books on rock's most famous couples and in many there were featured Fleetwood Mac.

I've always felt like Mick and Marianne were the most iconic 'rock' couple, since they kind of personified that 60s rock scene, plus she was a muse in more ways than one, giving the book that inspired Sympathy for the Devil and all that.

For music couples in general, I think the most iconic is Johnny and June.

I cant think of any song that reminds me of their relationship together but there are lots of great songs about life after the relationship and the bitterness of the breakup.
Planets of the Universe
Silver Springs
Go Your Own Way
Dreams
etc.

I've always thought "Amazing" by an Australian singer Alex Lloyd reminds me of them especially if LB sang it solo

A lot of people seem to think the Eagles' Life in the Fast Lane is about them. I think it's somewhat fitting.

I hadn't ever really noticed before but the lyrics for Tiny Dancer would have been fitting for Stevie. Recently searching for the song's meaning it came out an interesting quote by Bernie Taupin that reminded me of how Stevie described her relationship with Lindsey when they were young, with her taking care of him and printing stars on his jeans and their kingsize bed with vintage coverlets on the floor. If a movie or series will ever be made about them I think this would be a very good soundtrack:

"We came to California in the fall of 1970, and sunshine radiated from the populace. I was trying to capture the spirit of that time, encapsulated by the women we met - especially at the clothes stores up and down the Strip in LA. They were free spirits, sexy in hip-huggers and lacy blouses, and very ethereal, the way they moved. So different from what I'd been used to in England. And they all wanted to sew patches on your jeans. They'd mother you and sleep with you - it was the perfect Oedipal complex."

Tiny Dancer

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

Jesus freaks out in the street
Handing tickets out for God
Turning back she just laughs
The boulevard is not that bad

Piano man he makes his stand
In the auditorium
Looking on she sings the songs
The words she knows, the tune she hums

But oh how it feels so real
Lying here with no one near
Only you and you can hear me
When I say softly, slowly

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

But oh how it feels so real
Lying here with no one near
Only you and you can hear me
When I say softly, slowly

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today
