I don't want to know the reasons why
Love keeps right on walking on down the line
I don't want to stand 'tween you and love, honey
I just want you to feel fine

I don't want to know the reasons why
Love keeps right on walking on down the line
I don't want to stand 'tween you and love, honey
I just want you to feel fine

Finally, baby
The truth has come down now
Take a listen to your spirit
It's crying out loud
Trying to believe
Oh, you say you love me, but you don't know
You got me rockin' and a-reelin'
Oh, yeah
Ah...

I don't want to know the reasons why
Love keeps right on walking on down the line
I don't want to stand 'tween you and love, honey
I just want you to feel fine

I don't want to know the reasons why
Love keeps right on walking on down the line
I don't want to stand 'tween you and love, honey
I just want you to feel fine

Finally, baby
The truth has been told
Now you tell me that I'm crazy
It's nothing that I didn't know
Trying to survive
Oh, you say you love me but you don't know
You got me rockin' and a-reelin'
Hey, you know what you do
Oh, yeah
Ah...

I don't want to know the reasons why
Love keeps right on walking on down the line
I don't want to stand 'tween you and love, honey
Take a little time

I... I don't want to know

This song is not my favorite from the album, but it's a great example of what this amazing record suffered from.  It's one of the greatest of it stime, but all the songs are so poppy.  I even thought that as a young teenager.  You just figure, well, it can't be that good because it's all too catchy.  But as time goes on it becomes clear that, yeah, it's super catchy and it's just amazing song by song.  Will be remembered long after a lot of formerly highly prized stuff from this era is forgotten.

Sorry no, the band went on to do a few more good albums before it all went south.
Fleetwood Mac is my favourite band of all time. Anything up until Future Games. After that I couldn't listen to it. Still can't. Give me Green, Kirwan and Spencer any, ANY day of the week.

This was a very special band in the sense that blended great musicianship with great vocals. And then poof...it was all over...just like gossamer.
There has never since been a band like this.

That's what happens when the various band members fool around and cheat on each other hmm? I never liked them much after all the personal bullshit going on and THEN they write songs about it and perform it live while eyeing each other up knowing that it's all crap now.

 
Perhaps a Prozac can help you with those rage issues.
Great album!

Dude.  Loosen up.  A little bubblegum now and then is a good thing.
Perfect!

But...  They are still going, and selling records (CDs, whatever) by the truck-load.

One of the best albums EVER, but the live double is my favourite of theirs.

Yeah, but when the Beatles recorded something that sounded 'bubblegum', it was still regarded as 'great'....This version of FM should be considered 'great'....the vocals, musicality; I've heard 'bubblegum', and this aint it....

 this is just very good ez listening...

Yeah you are right. But I love it!
Tell us what you expect from 1800 to 2015 - cause that's RP!

yep, incredible resemblance, both sound and looks

Stevie  = Shirley Cassidy on vocals
Lindsey =  David Cassidy on guitar, singing
Mick = the little kid on drums ( whatever his name is)
Christine = Susan Day on keys
John = Danny Bonaduce on bass


That is too Funny!!
 


How does one hear this song the same after the hilarious SNL skit with Paul Rudd? {#Lol}
From my favorite new SNL skit with Paul Rudd.
