He died while she was there and she did in fact go running down the hallway "in flood of tears that no one every heard fall at all". And it sounds as though she forgets the words or has none so she bellows: "ooohhh hoooooo oh ummmmm aawwhhhhaaaa blaaahhhummm blaaaabbbaaablaaahhh" Sounds kinda like a tortured sheep bleat!!!
The chorus of the song was originally to be the final verse. Actually, Fleetwood Mac *was* still together when she recorded this.
Was track six off her debut solo album, 'Bella Donna', and on August 30th, 1981 it reached #1 (for 1 week) on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart (it also peaked at #1 on the Australian Kent Music Report Albums chart)...
Three other tracks off the album also made the Top 100; "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" (#3), "Leather and Lace" (#6) and "After the Glitter Fades" (#32)... Nick, born Stephanie Lynn Nicks, will celebrate her 66th birthday in three months on May 26th (2014).
i think wikipedia mentions something about this song. I hate it when people say chicks can't rock (not just cuz i am one...) but then i say look at the go a joan at when i say stevie nicks, they stop saying "oh she/they don't count"I'm a fan of this song.
My brother is annoyed by it because he has heard it "too much". If I were in Stevie Nicks's position, I'd call it "White-Winged Dove" rather than "Edge of Seventeen", but that's just my opinion.
At the time I thought, "Poor Stevie, the croud is gonna walk when she comes on stage." She rivaled his energy.
When she sang this, one of her back ups stood behind her and sang the echo "I hear you - hear you . ." There was raw pain in both voices - my eyes were stinging.
(I never knew Lohan was even a singer.) Anyway, Stevie Nicks rocks!! The live version on her newest CD Crystal Visions, with the MSO gives me chills! It's more powerful than Stevie's original with the violins and thrashing electric guitars.A good song, but I agree that it gets repetitious (seems like 10 minutes of 'sings a song, sounds like she's singin'....ooooo....ooooo...ooooo! It's hardly the only song to be guilty of that, but guilty it is.To whoever said this song is boring and repetitious (your name isn't even worth mentioning)..Bella Donna became America's top-selling album in September 1981. -michelle The part of the song about Stevie's uncle is pretty much verbatim how it happened.Her uncle was dying and Stevie would visit him every day.
