Even if you are not familiar with the band Lips, you might have heard of its founder and lead-singer Stephanie Brown for her work as a musical director. And if you have ever seen an album cover with a child wearing a huge pair of lips on their head- then you have most likely come across Lips before. I am being completely serious about this, the band represents itself in covers and videos as a child wearing a huge pair of lips. Peak creativity, we can all go home.Read more
“Shooting Star is largely about how quickly people’s light can be extinguished, no matter how brilliant it was burning at the time.”
This is all you need to know about the artist I want to talk to you about right now. Because is this not what great Tumblr quotes and journal entries are all about?
I was first introduced to Fleetwood Mac by my Mum, who was obsessed with their song “Oh Diane” from their album Mirage, which led to me listening to that particular album by Fleetwood Mac casually for a really long time. My Mum even owned the album on record, so when she gave me her collection I grew more and more familiar with Fleetwood Mac, however, I never really listened to any other of their records (I might have heard “Dreams” a couple of times before, but who knows)
But, one day as luck would have it, I stumbled across Rumours on Spotify (or Apple Music, whatever I was using at that time), gave it a listen and haven’t been the same ever since.
Rumours is still Fleetwood Mac’s most popular album to this date and Dreams was their only song to become a Number 1 hit.
