Fleetwood Mac- Go Your Own Way

In this episode of Song Exploder, Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac explained how the song “Go Your Own Way” became a reality. At this time Lindsey and Stevie Nicks, both part of the band, had recently broken up. They were working through how to go about their lives and have some closure even though they had to be together all the time due to being in the same band. He came up with the lyrics organically. He said that he did not try to hide who the song was about. He also used the help of Mick, to get the correct drum beat for the song. Lindsey also spoke about hearing the song on the radio for the first time and calling in to speak to the radio jockey to ask his opinion about the song. This is one of my all time favorite bands and songs, so I am glad to have gotten more insight into its creation.
