from Don't Leave Me to Don't Stop

Day 209, Session 71:
When/Where: Wednesday January 17th - Heading from the office to home.
First song: Don't Leave Me by Blink 182
Last full song: Don't Stop by Fleetwood Mac
Progress: 988-998 of 4802
Total Songs Heard: 848

You may be asking yourself, "How many different versions of Fleetwood Mac's Don't Stop could one person possibly need?"

Well if you are asking yourself that then first, yikes!, and second, thank goodness you stopped by! I can tell you with absolute certainty that you need 3 versions of Don't Stop.

1) From a Fleetwood Mac greatest hits cd that the wife brought to the marriage.
2) From the live reunion concert cd "The Dance," the reasons for owning we've already discussed.
3) And this is the one you didn't see coming: A cover of the song recorded by Elton John for a Fleetwood Mac tribute cd.

Now listen, I agree that we should all be alarmed by the fact that I have 3 different versions of Don't Stop but... can we all be relieved together that this represents the only appearance of Elton John in my entire musical library?

I was going to do a full breakdown here, but between 3 versions of Don't Stop, 2 songs titled Don't Leave Me, and the strikingly similar Don't Look Back and Don't Look Back (In Anger)... well, you get the idea of how that would have worked.

Sorry if you missed the party. It was a good time. We should be having another one soon, hopefully we'll see you there.

I have the same versions of Don't Stop, plus two more: one from the 2-CD Best of Fleetwood Mac set, and one from Rumours. Now, clearly, I like Fleetwood Mac. But Don't Stop is a crappy song.

I do, however, love Don't Know What You Got. Awesome song.
