For as famous as Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours” is — and it IS — just as famous was the drama and infighting that was going on between band members when it was recorded. The inter-band dynamics were insane at the time: band members divorcing and breaking up from one another, “diss” track after diss track recorded — and directed at one another, and drugs. SO many drugs. For better or worse, the result is one of the most widely revered albums of all time. The 1975 album boasts Mac classics like “Dreams,” “Go Your Own Way,” “Don’t Stop,” “The Chain” and even “Second Hand News.”

You can listen to Rumours by Fleetwood Mac on iTunes, Spotify, Tidal, YouTube, and Amazon. 


Young people all around the world were drawn to the angsty lyrics and lilting voice of Dolores O’Riordan when her band The Cranberries were EVERYWHERE in 1993 and 1994. But whereas their debut album featured beautiful pop hits like “Linger” and “Dreams,” their sophomore effort, “No Need to Argue” built upon the passion of relational anguish while shining a light on the horrors and plight of The Troubles in Ireland. Nowhere was that more evident and dramatic than in “Zombie,” which would be The Cranberries’ best-charting song of all time.
