Music: Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac

MUSIC is a segment that features a song that’s caught my brain.

Just to be clear, I am not a newbie to the work of Fleetwood Mac or the much adored Stevie Nicks. No, no *wags finger*. I went on a Fleetwood Mac bender this weekend and Rhiannon was speaking to me, loudly. I don’t understand why I was feeling Rhiannon so hard…but there you are. Explanations aren’t always required, more so when a feeling is evoked.

Lyrics, Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac

Rhiannon rings like a bell through the night and
Wouldn’t you love to love her?
Takes to the sky like a bird in flight and
Who will be her lover?

All your life you’ve never seen
A woman taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven?
Will you ever win?

She is like a cat in the dark and then
She is the darkness
She rules her life like a fine skylark and when
The sky is starless

All your life you’ve never seen
A woman taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven?
Will you ever win?
Will you ever win?

Rhiannon
Rhiannon
Rhiannon
Rhiannon

She rings like a bell through the night and
Wouldn’t you love to love her?
She rules her life like a bird in flight and
Who will be her lover?

All your life you’ve never seen
A woman taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven?
Will you ever win?
Will you ever win?

Rhiannon
Rhiannon
Rhiannon

Taken by
Taken by the sky

Taken by
Taken by the sky

Taken by
Taken by the sky

Dreams unwind
Love’s a state of mind

Dreams unwind
Love’s a state of mind

Dreams unwind
Love’s a state of mind

  1. I had a good friend in college who adopted Rhiannon as her theme song. She was so thrilled when Fleetwood played in our college gym back in the mid-1970s. (We made hash brownies for the occasion, so I mostly just remember it was awesome. They were about 25 feet away.)

      1. Oh dear. And this is where I lose a follower. Dare I say it, I’ve never really cared for The Boss. His work just never landed on my ear positively. The exception is, I’m On Fire. It sounds the most true to me, sensual, seductive…more movement than sound. And there you are. Don’t hate me! 🙃
