Rosebud version. No other version comes close, IMO.

I think so, too. Lindsey could have recorded lot of great rock songs. I don't think it's the best mac song (there is no one best), but it is so cool.. Hey! right now I'm listening it!!!

I don't know you but I found it very.. Californian. When I was last september visiting several places (LA, SD, Santa Barbara, Solvang), I love to play that song very loud on the freeway (specially when there was no traffic ha haaa

Even though there are other FM songs (especially from the Rumors era) that I like just as well, I believe GYOW is one of their best songs and not just because it was (and still is) so successful. My reasons why:
1) I can't for the life of me remember when I first heard it. It seems like I have always known that song.And it makes me feel good every time I hear it.

2) It is one of the songs that every single time I hear them make me think: "one must be a very inspired musician to write such a simple yet perfect song". GYOW is one of the few examples that show that great songs don't need to have complicated lyrics or over-sophisticated sound or whatever. It is pure simplicity. To be it differently: IMO it is a song that had to be written

3) I just love the way it starts "loving you..." and Stevie's "packing up-shacking up" singing along at the live versions !!!

That's all from me!

are you crazy?

it's ok...but the song was still in the early stages of being perfected to what it would later become...correct?

I also enjoy Stevie's part in the last verse. It's my absolute favorite live performance of this song...just wish the last guitar solo was longer.
Is this the performance you mean? It's the first time I've seen it (thanks to youtube and priestofnothing). It totally rocks! The close-ups of Stevie are total cuteness! and I love her singing those parts!

That looks like it was taken from the Mirage tour, because of the funny hat.

If the Rosebud version is the one I'm correctly thinking about - I would say that would be my favorite live version of the song. Not that its better than anything else - I just really love it. You can see that the sting of the song is fresh to Stevie, and when she sings the back up vocal, the camera is right on her, and she looks dazed, like she's holding down some tears and venom..even her eyes look a bit - teary - not that she is - it just looks really cool. Yes - total cuteness - the kind I wish I had!

I also love how she has her hand on her hip at the beginning - like - "Ok you a-hole, lets start this thing and get it over with"...(Again - I'm hoping this is the same concert). The drama was really going on between them at that time...so there are sparks.

But my all time favorite version is the album. The song is just simply orgasmic as it hits the crecendo and just fades out. Great song. I can't remember when I first heard it. It's does sound like it's always been around...I guess Lindsey had a good muse the day he wrote it...and was able to snatch it from the air.

I heard this song on the radio today (heh- surprise) and realized that this song may be one of my all time favorite songs, period. I am a chiffonhead at heart, but this song really does it for me. Studio version is the best, IMO.

The problem with Rosebud is that it doesn't have the guitar solos. The guitar outro solo is a huge part of that song.
