Stevie Nicks new single “Show Them The Way”

I actually love it. It’s like she’s telling a story of what was happening during a certain period. Love it.

Love it, too. Quite long but worth every minute.

Her voice is shot. She sounds like my grandmother on the phone.

The video made me cry. Our country is a fucking mess. Vote, y’all.

Her voice sounds pretty decent still. I like the subject matter, of course, but the lyrics are kind of... cringey. It reads like something out of a 7th grade creative writing class.

Every Karen, Tara, Pam, and Sue is creaming their panties on Facebook over this song.

Wait, you bitches "LOVE" this?!?! I mean, I love her and all, but, this is painfully bad. Like, REALLY bad. Boardering on embarrassing. For example...

[quote] I had a fragile dream in a great house in the Hamptons; I'd been there before singing songs and doing benefits; Was in a room alone putting on my makeup; so many things come to me, the dress came to me across the Persian carpet. I fell into the dress ... I have a dream and a door opened, I turned to the door, I was ready for the Kennedys..

WTF?! Is she drunk?!

C'mon, this is terrible writing.

R6 he had nothing to do with her MANY hits. Something he couldn’t create without her.

by Anonymousreply 1010/11/2020

R9 Most artists would get eviscerated for this lyric. Nicks is in that realm of Paul McCartney or Dylan now where she doesn't get called out for it because she an ~*icon*~.

Her lyrics were always basically on that level. Maybe 10th grade and not 7th, I guess.

But yeah, this is even worse.

Coccaine has ruined her nose. She now sound like she just recover from a cold.

by Anonymousreply 1310/11/2020

Except, R11, she was NEVER on their level. She’s iconic, sure, but she has never been considered a great lyricist *or* melodicist except by dippy ding-dongs or people who know nothing about music.

by Anonymousreply 1410/11/2020

R10 Her solo material is not good and a lot of her hits were written for her or cowritten. Dopey Fraus seem to worship at her feet.

I’m sure Lindsey is grateful he wasn’t called up to put lipstick on this particularly awful pig. It’s atrocious.

R15 doesn’t matter. They’re HER hits. Her name is the one who sold albums and singles. His flopped.

R17, you’re not exactly making the case for her solo stuff that you think you are.

by Anonymousreply 1810/11/2020

R17 She had hit songs because the American public is particularly tasteless and stupid. Stevie has outsold Joni Mitchell in droves but she'll never have that integrity.

by Anonymousreply 1910/11/2020

She's got her name on "Stop Draggin' my Heart Around" almost certainly because of fellatio.

by Anonymousreply 2010/11/2020

Integrity means shit in the music business. It’s about HITS. Stevie has that.

by Anonymousreply 2110/11/2020

Lindsey did wonders for her on “Illume” - her equally embarrassing and narcissistic take on 9/11. He made it sound brooding and interesting. With this song she falls flat on her face.

by Anonymousreply 2210/11/2020

She’s a woman in her 70s. If she were that worried about it she would have called big shots. She isn’t trying to make a hit, she put out a song that means something to her during these times.

R21 is a tasteless drone, the sort of person who will slog their fat butt to the cinema to eat chemically altered butter flavored popcorn to see The Avengers part 14.

Garbage philosophy. Yuck, I’d hate to see what your “record collection” looks like, if you even have one. Do you actually like music?

by Anonymousreply 2610/11/2020

She's overwritten the lyrics. Too many ideas going on. It feels like she's just singing a stream of consciousness improv.

She's over-seasoned the stew, folks.

(Plus it's too long)

by Anonymousreply 2710/11/2020

[R27] You’re giving her too much credit. This doesn’t sound like the product of an artist with too many “ideas” - it’s a bunch of cliches strung together incoherently - like someone who who wants to say profound things but lacks the insight and moral capacity to do so.

by Anonymousreply 2810/11/2020

[R28] Who also lacks linguistic and melodic abilities.

Stevie sounds like the valedictorian of Retard University.

by Anonymousreply 3010/11/2020

I don't think it's any more embarrassing than that Bob Dylan song this year that ironically namedropped her and Lindsey (and every other fucking celebrity in the '60s-'70s), "Murder Most Foul". That shit made me laugh out loud.

by Anonymousreply 3110/11/2020

Dave Grohl is on this track, more proof that he will do absolutely anything to stay relevant. Courtney Love has more artistic credibility than Dave Grohl. Stevie needs an editor, but she's past the point of taking constructive criticism. Any criticism of her ditzy doo lyrics is abusive to her.

by Anonymousreply 3210/11/2020

R31. Indeed that song was embarrassing. Dylan has been coasting for 40 years now.

by Anonymousreply 3310/11/2020

I love Stevie in the context of Fleetwood Mac. Sara and Storms are two of my favorite songs ever, but comparing her solo songs to her FM material is like comparing ground beef to prime rib.

by Anonymousreply 3410/11/2020

Her solo songs were fun. She was a POP STAR.

by Anonymousreply 3510/11/2020

Who is this poster who somehow "knows" that female singer/songwriters never actually never write the songs with their names on it as the writer? Do you also question male singers or do you just assume all male singers can write songs because they have a magical cock? Fuck off with your misogyny, you fool.

by Anonymousreply 3610/11/2020

I love her, but that was dreadful. I'm sure in her old age she is probably even more soft hearted than ever, and had some great thoughts that inspired this. But, it's a mess.

by Anonymousreply 3710/11/2020

The song is top 10 in the itunes chart so people are paying for it.

by Anonymousreply 3810/11/2020

R36 it is common knowledge that Tom Petty wrote SDMHA and Prince got credit for Stand Back. Sorry, but she's no Kate Bush. As another poster said she was more of a pop star, not a singer/songwriter.

R42 It's almost like she needs an editor, but had her best editor fired.

by Anonymousreply 4410/13/2020

[R44] Except that there’s nothing for an editor to do with this song but tell her to throw it into the trash. It has no redeeming qualities - not a single memorable phrase or melodic line. It’s total crap.

by Anonymousreply 4510/13/2020

I love Stevie, but even Dolores O'Riordan's ghost would call this song shallow and preachy.

by Anonymousreply 4610/13/2020

It is weird that she hasn’t mention the viral video maybe it will help her promote her new single which fell to #28 in the itunes chart while Dreams is still #1 on itunes and reenter the Billboard charts.

She’s a legend. They aren’t.

by Anonymousreply 5210/17/2020

Well she's a legend who is a DELUSIONAL CUNT , who can no longer sing, and her new song has neither a melody or any value. It's the work of a desperate egomaniac of a woman trying to remain relevant by using Martin Luther King and the Kennedys. It's pathetic. I don't buy it.

by Anonymousreply 5310/17/2020

She didn’t release her new song to chart. She released it because it’s relevant to what is happening.

R52 So a white woman can evoke MLK, reducing him to a side character in her egomaniacal tale about the Kennedys and get away with it because she's a legend. Got it.

by Anonymousreply 5610/17/2020

[R56].it’s a shit song and there’s no need to bring identity politics into it. You don’t “own” the character of MLK because you’re black anymore than Stevie Nicks does.

This “song” is more embarrassing than her crush on Harry Styles.

Stevie is a legend. She is the superstar of Fleetwood Mac. Not Lindsey or Christine. She is the only female inducted into the Rock nRoll Hall of fame twice......The listeners connect to Stevie's music because of her lyrics. This is not one of her better songs but her point is well taken. I have always loved her music .....it has been the soundtrack to most of my life.....

by Anonymousreply 5910/17/2020

[R59] “Did you get all that, Karen? She is the superstar of Fleetwood Mac! Lindsey will love that!!”

by Anonymousreply 6010/17/2020

Stevie is such an egomaniac. "Everyone was jealous of my album". She needs people to kiss her ass 24/7 or she'll die. I can imagine Christine hearing Edge of 17 and thinking "this blows". Her solo albums were not good. Her last one was inspired by the Twilight films. She's an idiot and her rabid fans who think her poetry is deeper than diary entries of a 12 old girl are smoking some serious crack.

R59 The rock and roll hall of fame is a joke. Both Ringo and George Harrison have been inducted for their mediocre solo work. George had one good song and it was a rip off.

Meanwhile Stevie’s debut sold... 7 million.
