The Album

Fleetwood Mac (Tango in the night) is the fourteenth studio album by the pop-rock band. The album was released on 13 April 1987. It includes the hits like “Everywhere” and “Little Lies”. Tango in the night is the last original album released by the group, with only compilations and re-issues appearing later.

Tango in the Night is a stunning showcase of the band’s ability to effortlessly blend together various musical genres, resulting in an eclectic and unforgettable listening experience. The album is the last one to feature the classic lineup of Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie, John McVie, and Mick Fleetwood, and it marks a high point in their career, both in terms of commercial success and critical acclaim.

The album kicks off with “Big Love,” a track that features Buckingham’s signature fingerpicking guitar style and showcases his vocal range. The song is a testament to the band’s ability to craft powerful pop-rock tunes that stay with you long after the album has ended. It is followed by “Seven Wonders,” a quintessential song by Stevie Nicks, with her dreamy vocals and poetic lyrics. The chorus is infectious, and the harmonies are impeccable.

The third track, “Everywhere,” is a true gem of a song, with Christine McVie’s smooth vocals and keyboard skills taking center stage. The track is a perfect blend of pop and rock, with a catchy chorus that will have you singing along in no time. The fourth track, “Caroline,” is a slower, more introspective number that features Buckingham’s haunting vocals and intricate guitar work. The track is a testament to the band’s ability to showcase their individual talents while still working together to create a cohesive whole.

The album’s title track, “Tango in the Night,” is a moody, atmospheric number that shows off the band’s experimental side. The track features an intricate percussion section and showcases the band’s ability to incorporate Latin rhythms into their music seamlessly. The song is a standout track and sets the tone for the rest of the album.

Other notable tracks on the album include “Little Lies,” a catchy and upbeat tune that features McVie’s vocals, and “Family Man,” a track that features Buckingham’s distinctive guitar work and harmonies. The album’s closing track, “Welcome to the Room…Sara,” is a haunting and emotional song that showcases Nicks’ storytelling ability and vocal range.

One of the strengths of “Tango in the Night” is the band’s ability to seamlessly incorporate different musical styles into their songs, resulting in a diverse and dynamic listening experience. From the Latin-inspired rhythms of the title track to the dreamy pop of “Seven Wonders,” the band effortlessly blends together different genres to create a unique and memorable album.

Another strength of the album is the band’s ability to showcase their individual talents while still working together to create a cohesive whole. Each member of the band is given a chance to shine, whether it is Buckingham’s guitar work on “Caroline” or McVie’s keyboard skills on “Everywhere.” The result is an album that feels like a true collaboration between talented musicians.

Overall, “Tango in the Night” is a masterpiece of an album that showcases the best of Fleetwood Mac. It is a testament to their ability to blend together different musical genres and showcase their individual talents while still working together to create a cohesive whole. The album remains a beloved classic to this day and is a must-listen for fans of pop and rock music alike.

Lyrics

Can you hear me calling
Out your name?
You know that I’m falling
And I don’t know what to say
I’ll speak a little louder
I’ll even shout
You know that I’m proud
And I can’t get the words out

Oh, I
I want to be with you everywhere
Oh, I
I want to be with you everywhere
(Wanna be with you everywhere)

Something’s happening
Happening to me
My friends say I’m acting peculiarly
Come on, baby
We better make a start
You better make it soon
Before you break my heart

Oh, I
I want to be with you everywhere
Oh, I
I want to be with you everywhere
(Wanna be with you everywhere)

Can you hear me calling
Out your name?
You know that I’m falling
And I don’t know what to say
Come along, baby
We better make a start
You better make it soon
Before you break my heart

Oh, I
I want to be with you everywhere
Oh, I
I want to be with you everywhere
Oh, I
I want to be with you everywhere
Oh, I
I want to be with you everywhere
(Wanna be with you everywhere)
