Stevie Nicks 1981

The Wild Heart @ 30: ‘First he took my heart then he ran’

Kicking off side two of The Wild Heart is Stevie Nicks' massive hit "Stand Back." Though it's not her highest charting single (that honor goes to "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around," which peaked at number three in 1981), "Stand Back" is clearly her...

The Wild Heart @ 30: ‘So to the red rose… Grows the passion’

'You say you seek the truth, I say all is fair...' One of Stevie Nicks' more obscure songs is “Gate and Garden,” track three on The Wild Heart. Nicks has seldom discussed the song in great detail and has never performed it in concert, but the breezy...

VINTAGE VIDEO: 'Nightbird' from Solid Gold

Stevie’s rare live rendition of “Nightbird” with Lori Nicks on Solid Gold (most artists lip synch-ed) is an unforgettable television performance. Looking absolutely radiant and giving a strong nuanced vocal, Stevie was in top form...

The best pop music of 1983

A CHOICE OF 10 SINGLES – THE BEST POP MUSIC OF 1983 In 1983, singles proved to be a much better vehicle for amusing, adventurous pop music than albums were. Whether we’re talking about the traditional 7-inch single or the expansive 12...

REVIEW: Nicks’ vocals fall flat

A considerable part of Stevie Nicks’ appeal is her ethereal manner, the witchy way she slinks and spins on stage, belting out songs like incantations, in a throaty, quaking voice. In concert Saturday night at the Hollywood Sportatorium with...

Mystical Music: Stevie Nicks

One of the “rules” of growing up is to leave behind childhood fantasies of spirits, fairy princesses and the like — unless you build a career on mystical appeal, as has singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks. Throughout her 15-year career...

Stevie Nicks smiling

Stevie Nicks: She’s smiling now

Stevie Nicks has always been two performers. At times, she is the Gothic figure of tragedy, the enigmatic witch of “Rhiannon” who swirls her diaphanous black and white capes as she dances an ancient ballet — her mystery heightened by her...

REVIEW: Crowd’s actions dampen Stevie Nicks’ concert

When Stevie Nicks came prancing and swirling onto the Myriad Convention Center stage Saturday night to deliver a “”Wild Hearts” concert, she found herself confronted with a crowd more akin to wild animals. Some 200 rude and...

A Wild Heart — Stevie Nicks

Houston, Texas — It had been building toward this all day. First, Stevie Nicks’ personal assistant and then her road manager had issued the warning: Don’t ask Stevie about her personal life, or else. Now the lady herself was making it...

REVIEW: Stevie Nicks’ gnomes become drones

Normally a singer with the band Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks is touring with a group of her own this year. At Colt State Park last night, she performed to a capacity crowd of about 9,000. In the context of a Fleetwood Mac album, Nicks’ airy...

ALBUM REVIEW: Stevie Nicks, The Wild Heart

Arts/Entertainment: Record Guide, Pop-Rock Stevie Nicks: The Wild Heart. (Modern/Atco Records 7 90084-1.) It’s Stevie Nicks’s second solo album away from Fleetwood Mac. How’s she doing? Not too shabbily, judging from this effort...

Innerview: Stevie Nicks

Stevie Nicks sees world in a blur

PHOENIX, Ariz. — For singer Stevie Nicks, her success as a songwriter could be attributed to her failing eyesight. I definitely perceive the world differently than most people do,” said the most visible member of the rock group Fleetwood Mac...

ALBUM REVIEW: Stevie Nicks, The Wild Heart

Stevie Nicks: The Wild Heart (Modern) — As with her first solo effort, Bella Donna, Stevie Nicks’ latest album combines cryptic and depthless lyrics with a reedy voice of both ethereal beauty and rock-hard coarseness that cuts through...

ALBUM REVIEW: The Wild Heart

Seldom has Stevie Nicks been in better voice than on The Wild Heart. Her distinctive lower-range growl has broadened and strengthened considerably; it may not be a bluesmama instrument, but it carries some emotional oomph when it gets cranked up...

Stevie Nicks’ newest album filled with romantic spirit

Stevie Nicks inhabits a world of sprites, gnomes, fairies and handsome princes. The songs she writes and sings all seem to be set in an evergreen glade where unicorns peep around trees and rainbows shade the sky. To say that Nicks is a romantic is...

REVIEW: Eccentric Nicks gives delicate concert

Stevie Nicks, who performed at the Spectrum last night, is a very unusual pop artist: an intensely mannered and eccentric performer whose mannerisms and eccentricity yield good music. Nicks usually performs as part of the band Fleetwood Mac, but she...

The Wild Heart (1983)

Sable on Blond

Learn to be a stranger Blond on blond In silence she says, “Excalibur” I beg of you now What was it that fell Was it One fallen leaf Like the feather that it was Was it freedom by choice Or, baby, was it love Was it a thorn in your side...

I Will Run to You (Duet with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers)

One so young, so changed Should not be left alone Two in love should confess And not be left alone And, I will run to you Down whatever road you choose Yes, I will follow you down I will run to you You’ve had time, come around Will you please...

Stevie Nicks If Anyone Falls The Wild Heart 1983

Garbo

I love to waltz with a man in a dark linen suit All alone at a party with someone I knew From a time gone by turned into stone You could be Garbo or even Marlene You could be Marilyn Or you could forget I play the part but then all of us do And I do...

Stevie Nicks The Wild Heart 1983

Wild Heart

Something in my heart died last night Just one more chip off an already broken heart I think the heart broke long ago That’s when I needed you When I needed you most That’s when I needed you When I needed you most Well, I run around like...

Gate and Garden

There is a gate It can be guarded Well, it is not heaven And it has a garden So to the red rose Grows the passion And the guardian Well, it’s now you know It’s just a few days away It’s now you know And it’s then It’s...

Beauty and the Beast

You’re not a stranger to me And you, well, you’re something to see You don’t even know how to please You say a lot, but you’re unaware how to leave My darling lives in a world that is not mine An old child misunderstood, out...

Stevie Nicks If Anyone Falls The Wild Heart 1983

If Anyone Falls

I hear a voice In the room next to mine Feels good, sounds good Closes the door from behind And another voice Comes through the door I am dealing with a man When away from me Stays deep inside my heart And he says if anyone falls in love It will be...

Nightbird (Feat. Sandy Stewart)
