Default Lindsey song on Belinda Carlisle's 1985 album

'Since You've Gone', from 'Belinda' (1985), written by Lindsey Buckingham, Charlotte Caffey, and Jonathan Segal, according to the album credits.



Since you've gone
Nothing really matters
all I do is hang out with my pillow
I wait in anticipation
For your call that never comes

Since you've gone
Don't care about tomorrow
Since you've gone my heart's barely beating
I wait
In anticipation
for your touch it never comes

Another wild Friday night
And I'm waiting here for you
My head says stay home and die
But my heart says break on through

There were times
When you really loved me
All the times we would run together
To the heart
The heart of the city
Dreams that filled the night

Another wild Friday night
And I'm waiting here for you
My head says stay home and die
But my heart says break on through

I ought to get into my car
Hit that pedal hard
I'll drive until I find a way
Since you've gone away

Since you've gone
Nothing really matters
All I do is hang out with my pillow...

This isn't a surprise. I know that Belinda was a fan of Fleetwood Mac and that one or the producers of one of her albums was recommended to her by Stevie. I think it's Runaway Horses.

Didn’t Bekka sing backing vocals on that album?

Indeed. She also toured with Belinda for that tour and I think the next one. You can see her in a lot of the live videos from that time on YouTube.

I always felt like these other chick singers saw how much he did for Stevie's music and wanted him to do the same for them (ie make their songs hits).

Indeed. And that's the best compliment you could receive in your career as an artist and craftman. The man is a genius, and that's all that matters when you're in the business to make money, whether some people like it or not.

Belinda was a big admirer of Stevie and tried to imitate her vocal style and song choices.

Album was from '86 (her first solo album), and Lindsey co-wrote the song with Charlotte Caffey and Jonathan Segal: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belind...Carlisle_album)

Longtime friend and producer Rick Nowels, who wrote and produced parts of Stevie's "Rock a Little" also orchestrated most of Belinda Carlisle's solo career. Rick was Belinda's producer during the height of her solo career.

Rick Nowels notably produced I Canít Wait from Stevieís Rock a Little album, and later he produced several songs on her Trouble in Shangri-La album. Rick did not work on Belindaís first solo album, but he was given the song I Get Weak, written by Diane Warren for Stevieís RAL album, and offered it to Belinda instead, when he produced her second album Heaven on Earth, the album that made her really really famous- for a while, anyway.

Rick is younger than Stevie and Lindsey, but was friends with them in high school or right after. Rick also appears in Lindseyís video for Trouble- heís the blond haired guitarist and featured pretty prominently.

Bekka sang back up on at least one of Belindaís albums, and the filmed concert from her Heaven on Earth tour shows Bekka a lot- she shares back up vocals with Donna DeLory, who went on to tour with Madonna for several years. It was neat hearing Bekka talk about her experiences on that tour- hopefully Belinda is more mature now, 35 years later LOL but who knows. Itís hard to believe she was 16 then.
