Hey, seeing as I’ve had a Third Eye Blind CD on repeat in my car for a week again, I’m sharing another Flashback Friday song today. “Motorcycle Drive By” might be one of my favorite songs of all time, no lie. It has special calming powers. So, if the morning gets off to a rough start, or I’m driving home after a horrendous day – turn it up, roll the windows down, (doesn’t hurt when the beach looks pretty on the drive) and sing along – all will be well. At least for the duration of the track, and then my trick? Play it again…and again. It’s just that good. I mean the whole album is amazing. Dive into nostalgia and give it a listen if you haven’t in a while.
Is there anything more healing than driving on a rainy day with the stereo turned way up, singing along to Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours album? Okay, maybe…dancing around your room, sipping on wine, as the vinyl spins. But really, there’s a reason this album never gets old, why it has such staying power. Because it’s timeless, because it’s soulful, and because those jams…who can skip a Fleetwood Mac song, let alone resist singing along to it? So, for a Friday flashback I’ve got “Silver Springs” for you. This was actually a B-Side to “Go Your Own Way,” so it’s more of a hidden gem. Don’t ask me my favorite Fleetwood song because that’s next to impossible; they’re all so good! I just read a tweet the other day, someone somehow made it through almost 30 years of life without familiarizing themselves with this lovely album – if that’s you: get on it! You won’t be disappointed.
