We couldn't get TBS due to no cable, but yes to Friday Night Videos!

I grew up on 4 antenna channels. CBS, NBC, ABC, and one independent station. When I first moved away for college, I watched Nick At Night all the time. I'd never seen many of the shows they had.

But you're right about hindsight. They probably thought the fountain of quality material was not apt to run dry.
Garbo was held and recorded for the Wild Heart it. Much like Silver Springs before it the song ended up as the b-side to the first single.

The musician credits suggest it was recorded at the Bella Donna sessions.

Again it was the b-side of the Stand Back single so it was recorded for but left off of the Wild Heart as was Violet and Blue.

Yes, but if you look at the musician credits on Enchanted, it's the Bella Donna band. It's possible (likely, given the musicians) that the recording was an outtake from BD that they decided to use as a WH B-side two years later. That's what I'm suggesting.

Wonderful song.

I remember back in the day when I was trying to get my friend into Fleetwood Mac, I had just gotten the DVD of The Dance and we sat down to watch it.

During Silver Springs she turns to me and said that the song was making her feel uncomfortable as it felt like it was a private conversation between two people that we should not be intruding on. 😊

I loved that reaction and thought it was very sweet.

She is now a full blow fan with Silver Springs and Sara being her two favorites.

Unreal to think The Dance was 23 years ago, where does the time go?

I would convert my friends with the Mirage concert(on Betamax, shut up).

Although I quickly learned that Not That Funny had to be fast forwarded through, every time. If I didn't, man I'd hear about it! "This sucks, turn it off!"

As long as I skipped NTF, I converted quite a few people.

A normal human reaction to 99% of Lindsey's tunes.

I love 99% of Lindsey tunes, and love the album version of NTF.

There's a reason I love FM and The Eagles. I love harmony. Beautiful harmony. Things that are pleasant to the ears.

I've never been a fan of screaming. Go to the 9:10 mark, and also the 3:00 mark.

Funny you say that. I equally thought Mirage was magical that it could convert anyone. Had my friends walk out halfway through. They were more into metal.
The only good thing about Mirage's NTF is Christine's upright piano playing and clapping.
Was shocked he pulled NTF out for The Dance tour. I was like really...he's still obsessing about this song LMAO

My friends were always into harder rock that I was. Although I had my AC/DC/Led Zep stage of life.

He has always obsessed on NTF. I'd a 1000 times rather hear What Makes You Think You're The One. But no, he doesn't obsess on that!

I love NTF Mirage concert version. Far more than the Tusk album version.

And I love SS from The Dance. But also those long versions, the one included in the Rumous Deluxe (Early take 5:32), and the one included in the Rumours Expanded (6:08)

Agreed, and if Mac wasn't a legacy band at the time, the live version of "Silver Springs" from THE DANCE probably *would* have been a Top Ten hit on Hot 100.

the Perfect Song. It should have been number 1. It should have won the grammy.

After all these years, this is still my favorite comment in this thread. You say exactly what I feel about the two versions. I gave never been a fan of the original, which sounds anemic to my ears. (“I Don’t Wanna Know” was the RIGHT replacement and choice: it fits into the running order perfectly and sustains the up-tempo momentum of YMLF. Then, it is followed by the saddest, most anguished moment on the album. An example of expert track sequencing.)

But the 1997 version of “Silver Springs” marks a triumphant return to form for its singer and band. At this stage of her career, her voice wraps around the melody in all the right ways. And she has the age and experience that give the performance the weight it deserves.
