The Chain

I posted this on Facebook yesterday, thought I’d put it here as the more I think about it the more it make sense.

RNC 2016

I’ve been listening to Rumors lately, Rumors being the Album released by Fleetwood Mac in 1977. It was the first Album I ever bought with my own money.

I was 11 years old and just dug the music. Didn’t really listen to the lyrics for the meaning. I soon moved on to my heavy rock and really never returned to Rumors, especially after the Clintons co-opted Don’t Stop for the 92 campaign.

But recently I read something about the meanings of the songs, and how the whole band was going through personal turmoil. So I gave the whole album a listen again and fell in love with the album yet again.

Now, how does this tie into the RNC 2016? Well, it seems a song from the album spoke to me today…The Chain. It kinda speaks to how I feel about the GOP.

Listen to the wind blow
Watch the sun rise
Run in the shadows
Damn your love
Damn your lies

[2x]
And if you don’t love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain.

Listen to the wind blow
Down comes the night
Run in the shadows
Damn your love
Damn your lies

Break the silence
Damn the dark
Damn the light

[3x]
And if you don’t love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain.

[5x]
Chain, keep us together
Running in the shadows

 

Added:  The bass line holds this whole song together, according to Wikipedia, the song is actually a combination of three songs into one, and if you listen carefully you can pick up on it.  The harmonies are classic Fleetwood Mac.
