|Fleetwood Mac - Go Your Own Way lyric meanings and song
|Lindsey Buckingham wrote this as a message to
Stevie Nicks. It describes their breakup, with the most obvious line
being, "Packing up, shacking up is all you want to do." Stevie
insisted she never shacked up with anyone when they were going out,
and wanted Lindsey to take out the line. He refused.
|While the Rumours album was being
recorded, the marriage of John and Christine McVie (both of them Mac
members) was also coming to an end. With 2 couples breaking up
during the sessions, recording could be quite tense. They were also
doing lots of drugs at the sessions, making sure there was plenty of
Behind The Music material.
|This was the first single from the album,
which became one of the best-selling of all time.
|National Car Rental used this in commercials
as part of an advertising campaign based on the title.
