Even the voice behind Fleetwood Mac’s classic, “Dreams”, has now taken notice of how the song recently rose back to public attention, specifically by TikTok user Nathan Apodaca.
Stevie Nicks has uploaded her own take on the viral trend. She sat by her piano while lacing up a pair of roller skates, singing to the Fleetwood Mac hit as she goes along. By her feet is a record player spinning the LP along with a bottle of Ocean Spray Cran-Raspberry. Unlike Mick Fleetwood, who uploaded his take on the challenge earlier, Nicks doesn’t move or drink the juice. She tweeted the caption “Afternoon vibe. Lace ’em up! #Dreams,” along with the video.
It was TikTok user Nathan Apodaca’s genius idea of skateboarding down the highway with a bottle of cranberry juice in hand, vibing to “Dreams”. It went up a notch when the band took notice of the video and promoted it by tweeting “We love this!”, starting a trend among netizens to take up the challenge as well.
Nicks has also released the music video to her new single, “Show Them The Way”. The video is directed by the acclaimed Cameron Crowe, and features clips of Martin Luther King Jr., the Kennedy Family, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama; Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the BLM protests were also included.
“Show Them The Way” started out as a poem called “The Kennedys”, which Nicks wrote in 2008 after dreaming of her performing at a political benefit.
She said, “I sent this poem off to Senator [Ted] Kennedy when I heard he was ill. I wanted him to have it. People have asked me, ‘What is this dream about?’ My answer has always been, ‘Something about Barack Obama made me feel the hope and love I felt from the Kennedys and from Dr. King.’ My subconscious mind created this amazing dream. The dream hands the torch to Mr. Obama. ‘Do not forget what we were fighting for!’ I believe he will not forget.”
