Stevie Nicks Never Got Older

Mother Goose is in prime romance mode this morning, and cannot get this song out of her silly feathery head. Do you remember “Landslide” which was written by Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac? I hope that this song gets stuck in your head today…

I took my love, I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
Till the landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?
Mmm, mmm, mmm

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing
‘Cause I’ve built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older and I’m getting older too

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing
‘Cause I’ve built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older and I’m getting older too
Oh, I’m getting older too

Awh, take my love, take it down
Awh, climb a mountain and turn around
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well, the landslide bring it down

And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well, the landslide bring it down
Oh, the landslide bring it down

She might sing of getting older, but of course, Stevie still looks young and enchanting. I wonder if she still floats and hovers and twirls and swirls onstage — her singing and dancing are so unique and lovely. Mother Goose will even go out on a limb and say that Stevie Nicks is ethereal in her music. She is hypnotic and entrancing — her voice is haunting.

Listening to this song, Mother Goose can’t help but sing along. Sometimes Mother Goose pretends that she IS Stevie Nicks, and sings loudly and twirls around and around in a flurry feathers and musical passion and wonder. In my dreams, I leave my ordinary suburban existence and I float off to mountain majesties and ancient mysterious castles. I see my reflection in snow-covered hills.

I go where no goose has gone before….thanks to the song, Landslide and the graceful beauty of Stevie Nicks.

    You’re right! She has one of those timeless voices. I don’t know if you saw her on Oprah in one of the last of the shows? She was just amazing. She’s even older than I am…ha! But I repeat…she is timeless! I treat myself to a Fleetwood Mac day every now and again, and just listen and listen. I sing along, but I rarely twirl…you, on the other hand, twirl beautifully, by the way! Debra

      Year dear, thank you so much. With my wings lifted to the heavens, who knows — I might just take off for the skies one of these days…

    When I was just out of high school, The Smashing Pumpkins released their version of the song. Billy Corgan (lead singer of The Smashing Pumpkins) has certainly aged since that time, so it must be something about Stevie Nicks and not the song.

      Jimmy, I haven’t heard THAT version of the song, but Billy graduated from the same high school as three of my kids so I guess I should go and look for it. thanks for the heads up and be blessed today!
