Fleetwood mac gypsy song meaning

Flag tracieodette77 on August 21, Interesting interpretation, canda. Is there some way to block comments from dudeness88? Or, preferably, some way I can contribute to getting the comment deleted and the user banned? This site is generally pretty good for intelligent discussion, but it doesn't take many comments from users with either social or brain development problems to bring a forum down to Youtube levels of discourse. No offense intended toward dudeness It's not his fault that he was born or raised into those conditions.

Flag bingoboy on October 14, However, I love the creativity behind your idea and I think even Stevie herself would too! Flag altamber8 on January 03, But they're all different sides of me.

I just uh.. I went through an experience that wasn't particularly pleasant and I moved out of my big English bedroom into the little back bedroom that was all It's just a little tiny room and put my bed back on the floor, moved my JBLs [speakers] in there, all my plants And I, it was really like living back in my apartment before I joined Fleetwood Mac I'm very comfortable living in one little room with my bed on the floor and kind of lace tacked up at the windows, you know.

Back to the gypsy. I love long dresses. I love velvet.

Fleetwood Mac's ANGEL ~ SONG & LYRICS ~ via Awakening Code Radio ♥

That's one part of me That's the Velvet Underground. Those are the things that I can't give up. It's not easy to be a hippie-gypsy when you're rich and when you're a rock'n'roll star. Gypsy was very real. Gypsy is a lot about returning to San Francisco. And Gypsy was written when my best friend [Robin] died of Leukemia and uh I still see your bright eyes, it was like she wasn't Robin had been on the road with Fleetwood Mac for five years. As my speech therapist and also management, an incredibly efficient helper.

Lightening strikes maybe once, maybe twice It all comes down to you, means but you have to look very hard. I knew her [Robin]. And she's still here so I guess New York was our favorite place, so I've been searching for what stevie's inspiration was behind this. Flag killNem on January 21, Therefore, my interpretation of the song is a lady who has been bound somehow, whether mentally, emotionally, or physically, now has freed herself. Now that she is free, she is back to what she used to be. Back to the "gypsy" meaning the things that she loved the most. She loved lace, laying on the floor, dressing in velvet, etc.

She said lightning strikes once, maybe twice. Here I think she means she found something good, a once-in-a-lifetime, whether it was a lover, a dream or goal come true, whatever, but whatever good thing it was, it was good while it lasted, now she is free and back to the things she always loved and is comfortable with that. I think its a happy song. To find yourself and finally get back to you after going through something is always an amazing freedom. Thats what the song means to me. The great thing about music is It's interesting cosmo1 - my interpretation, what this song means to me personally - is kind of simillar, but at the same time almost the opposite of what it means to you.

By that I mean that I see it as someone who was free, but is now bound.

Ten years ago I ended up in a wheelchair, before that I was an actor, singer, dancer. In a lot of ways, the wheelchair did give me freedom because without it, I was just stuck in a bed, but it was very frightening to go out into the world. It was really hard for me to work up the courage to go anywhere in the chair, but after a few years my daughter tricked me into going to a karaoke bar with her.

Add your thoughts

For a long time I was content to sit on the sidelines and watch her perform, but eventually she pushed quite literally! For me - the "floor that I loved" was a stage, and the rest of it was basically looking back at who I used to be, because the memory is all I have left of her.

Whenever I hear it now, well I still have mixed emotions, but it makes me feel stronger and happier because I did sort of get back to me by putting myself back on stage. You are right about interpretations. I am always interested to hear the songwriter's meanning, but that doesn't often change what it means to me. It can mean something different to everyone who hears it.

I doubt anyone knew what it meant to me the first night I sang it. Flag LillyTroy on January 27, I get something similar from Gypsy - that there is an aspect to it of finding your inner self and longing to be free. Flag Sunnyhill on January 07, That is, what it really means according to the person who wrote it.

Gypsy (Fleetwood Mac song)

I still have everything I had then. That's one part of me That's the Velvet Underground.

Those are the things that I can't give up. For me to be a gypsy; for me to write about the gypsy - and for me to live the life of a gypsy that I love - I sort of almost have to be almost cold and insensitive to be able to remain that gypsy. It's not easy to be a hippie-gypsy when you're rich and when you're a rock'n'roll star. Dreams was a very real song.

Gypsy was very real.
