    "Landslide" & The Great Question

    "Landslide" & The Great Question

    One night in 1973, in a multi-million-dollar house in Aspen Colorado, a young, ambitious and broke woman named Stevie Nicks sat alone with her dog, her guitar and a pen and paper and let the beautiful view of snow-capped mountains inspire her to write a song about her life's direction, and whether or not she and her boyfriend, Lindsey Buckingham, were on the right path. Flash forward about a year, and they were both famous rock stars and finally enjoying the fruits of their labors and more. That was the night Stevie wrote "Landslide".

    In this premiere episode of Linda's Turntable, Linda dives deep into what makes "Landslide" a great song - why she loves it, why we all resonate with its lyrics, and why, at some point in our lives, everyone has looked out on their version of "the snow-covered hills" and questioned their life path as Stevie Nicks did that night in Aspen almost fifty years ago. Why does "Landslide" endure? What is the Great Question? Why is this one of the songs that play perennially on Linda's turntable? In this episode, all that and more will be answered, and before long, "the landslide will bring you down."

FINALLY!

Really appreciated this deep dive into Landslide- I thought I knew everything there was to know about the song but you gave me some beautiful new insights! With all of the Stevie culties out there it’s pretty mind blowing that we have so few Stevie podcasts to listen to while we’re folding our shawls and sipping our tea. I mean I have a spreadsheet of the background of all of Stevie’s songs but this discussion was just perfect to listen to before bed. Really looking forward to more episodes!!!! (… and if you ever need a concert buddy, well 😉)✨🎩👢👑🐩🌙☕️🩰🌉🔮🖤🎶🎹🕊️🎨🖋️🏳️‍🌈🎃😊
