Go Your Own Way – Fleetwood Mac

Australian Charts:
Go Your Own Way entered the Kent Music Report on 7 February 1977 and peaked at #20.

‘Go Your Own Way’ by British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac was released on their eleventh studio album ‘Rumours’ and as the album’s first single. It was written and sung by Lindsey Buckingham.
Recorded in three separate studios, the track was developed over a period of four months. Like most tracks off Rumours, none of the instruments were recorded live together; the tracks were instead completed through a series of overdubs.

It describes their breakup, with the most obvious line being, “Packing up, shacking up is all you want to do,” and concluding that he is better off without her – she can go her own way as far as he’s concerned. Stevie insisted she never shacked up with anyone when they were going out, and wanted Lindsey to take out the line, but he refused.
