Heard Everyday at the grocery store this morning. That's a rare one and that's a good thing.
Later in the morning I heard I Don't Want To know on Sirus deep cuts

On the SirusXm this week in 1978 American Top 40 show a letter was written what album in the 1970s from a performer or band excluding soundtracks produced the most top 10 hits. The answer was Fleetwood Mac Rumours which spent 31 weeks at #1 and produced 4 top 10 hits. That was a huge achievement at the time regardless of album sales. In the late 80s and 90s it was fairly common by many performers like Michael Jackson, Madonna, Janet Jackson, etc.

As the 4 singles all hit US top 10, I think maybe they could have released a 5th single. What would that have been? The Chain is an obvious one. I know itís a bit long, but itís not as if there werenít other big hits in the 1970ís that were even longer. And I get they probably couldnít release it as a first single but given the album Ďwent viralí and the 4th song did well almost a year after the release of the first one, thereís every chance it would have sold well as a single. If not The Chain, then maybe Second Hand News should have been released as a 5th one???!!!???

I think I Dont Want To Know would have made a great radio friendly hit song. Its catchy and easy to sing along with just like Dont Stop was.
Its interesting after such a successful run, Warner did not release a 5th single though.

I was actually considering the creation of a poll on this very topic.

Maybe they wanted to regroup and start working on another album compared to keep running the Rumours machine. The album had at the time record charting singles from an album and most of the other tunes like The Chain and Gold Dust Woman were in heavy rotation on rock stations. Part of me admires them for not milking it to death.

So I follow a fb page for "Shemp" of the Three Stooges. They photoshop Shemp's head onto "John and Yoko(Shemp)" and the like. Tonight, it was Buckingham Shemp.

Stevie never looked better!

Heard If Anyone Falls on Sirius 80s this morning. Really great vocal by Stevie. Roy and Waddy make that song too. The song has a tremendous vocal bridge which Stevie was really good at. Gypsy is the best vocal bridge ever. But If Anyone Falls is pretty good too.

A travel youtuber I follow just posted at his Instagram this pic, while he is flying from Houston to Buenos Aires. The pic says Music to watch the sunrise during the flight.
