Music Monday - "Never Going Back Again" - Fleetwood Mac (1977)

"Never Going Back Again" is one of my favorite Fleetwood Mac songs.  You don't hear it often on the radio (even on SiriusXM), but it is a beautiful little song about moving on from a breakup.

This song was written by Lindsey Buckingham about his breakup with Stevie Nicks.  It was on the Rumours album in 1977, and was also the B-side of the 45 "Don't Stop."   I love the acoustic guitar work in this song, especially combined with such lovely, simple lyrics.   In a review of Rumours for Rolling Stone, John Swenson wrote:  "Never Going Back Again" is "the prettiest thing on [Rumours]."

Do you remember this song?  What are your favorites by Fleetwood Mac?  I'd love to hear from you in the comments, below.
