#21. "Gypsy" - Fleetwood Mac (1982)

Once in a while during the 80s, a song from the previous decade would slip through. "Gypsy" by Fleetwood Mac is one magical power pop song from a band rooted in the 70s. 

Stevie's haunting vocals always brings on the chills and goosebumps. We can thank the perpetual tension between Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham, this one written back to when the duo were struggling musicians. 

For me, this is Stevie's shining moment and Fleetwood Mac's best track: so polished yet so free. Lindsey's guitar work is subtle until his final solo tales over.

Fave lyrics:  "Lightning strikes. Maybe once, maybe twice"
