I know this is a song that was released 28 years ago and not a popular song from The Curb, but the lyrics are from the wrong song.

Toadies' song "Tyler" is written from the perspective of a stalker who has been looking through people's windows in Tyler, Texas.

Damn, what a sexy song :D Stevie has said that some pair doesn't need to be in love to make a love. Sex means freedom and brings you fun and that's what matters sometimes :D That's what this lyrics is exactly about.

This song seems pretty straight forward to me. I suppose you can “deeply interpret it” but simply it’s about a woman who is torn between 2 worlds/loves On 1 hand she has a love who seems like something she understands and reminds her of herself(crazy and cubano como yo) but she struggles becuase there’s another who is the bad boy/ dream boy(parliaments are fire and his hands are love). Here in California we call it Californication, you give up your soul in essence for chasing that dream…fame and power.

Stevie wrote this song for Christine McVie but also for herself. And this is about a decision to stay in Fleetwood Mac whether struggles like breake-ups, unfriendly situation within the band etc. etc. But another reason why Christine wanted to leave were roadies and tours that she was fed up with. It all lead Nicks to write a song to make her stay. I think this is the only song on her "Bella Donna" LP that shows the good side of show business/ music career because it's a place that can give you joy and happiness. But here are (I think)...

  • I wrote Think About It in 1975 for Chris [McVie] and for myself, too... I wrote it for her because I needed to write it for somebody else. She was going through her divorce with John, and in those days there were no wardrobe mistresses or speech therapists or anything, there was just me and Chris. So all she had, really, was me. And so I really had to be her friend and really be strong beside her at that point because she was really going to leave. And I had had my problems with Lindsey and I was really going to leave. And so this was just a song to remind her and remind me at the same time that we were giving up a lot if we left. And that it was really something that should be taken to the heart and thought about heavily before we walked out.

  • This particular song was written because Christine and John were breaking up. And she was very upset. And this was in the very beginning of Fleetwood Mac, and we had no wardrobe mistresses, no makeup artists... it was just us. And so she and I just had eachother to lean on. All over the country, alone. And so I was really her backbone for a few weeks in that period of time. Oh, and it turned around many times... but that was when I wrote that song. I didn't want her to leave, you know? And I was telling myself 'don't leave,' too. We knew... I mean, 'what are you going to do, Chris, what am I going to do? Work in a restaurant?' It's ridiculous. We can't give all this up... the music is fabulous, we can't just give it up because our men are messing up our lives.

    You have to wonder why "the people" keep trying to break them up. Great sax solo, anyhow!!!

    For me the song is up there with his best. The brutal economy of the whole song being vocal and acoustic with just a single piano punctuating roughly the ⅔ mark always seems to conjure Pink Moon with its devastating little piano line. Lyrically it does what all his greatest work does - fold in specific references to his own personal history with more abstract imagery, somehow forging the whole into an arc that draws you in as he navigates these fractured thoughts and memories. For my money it's broadly a goodbye song, a sweet, sad goodbye song, with some...

    Ever since my parents got traded in their 1963 Valiant, I've cried when we've gotten rid of car. My wife joined me when we gave her Chevy Lumina to a repair shop for parts. "Rusty Old American Dream" makes me cry too, especially the last verse..and I've gotten old enough that I sympathize even more with the car. How long till I meet the same sad fate?
