best song ever – Sara – Stevie Nicks

Wait a minute baby…
Stay with me awhile

Said you’d give me light
But you never told be about the fire


Stevie Nicks has always been cryptic on the meaning of the song. It’s the “poet in her heart”.

I like that.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

I wrote Sara on the piano, by myself. The original Sara was 16 minutes long. …

I knew that Sara would be very popular because I loved writing that song. I’ve had more fun writing that…I remember the night I wrote it. ‘I sat up with a very good friend of mine whose name is Sara, who was married to Mick Fleetwood. She likes to think it’s completely about her, but it’s really not completely about her.

It’s about me, about her, about Mick, about Fleetwood Mac. Its about all of us at that point. There’s little bits about each one of us in that song and when it had all the other verses it really covered a vast bunch of people. Sara was the kind of song you could fall in love with,

Mick … was the ‘great dark wing’. And, ah, it was about everything that was going on at that particular time, too, but he was the, the reason for the, you know, the beginning of it.

Stevie Nicks on Sara – in her own words

For the record, I always liked the controversial original album Tusk.

  1. Nah, best one is Landslide.
    I saw her live a couple of summers ago in Celine’s theatre in Vegas – was a blast!
    I saw her with my friend Ray Zwarich, another Saskatoon person relocated to Cirque du Soleil in Orlando. We partied on, like Wayne and Garth!
