Fleetwood Mac – Over My Head

ADVERTISEMENTS

Fleetwood Mac are a British-American rock band formed in July 1967, in London. The band have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling bands of all time. In 1998, selected members of Fleetwood Mac were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and received the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.

The two most successful periods for the band were during the late 1960s British blues boom, when they were led by guitarist Peter Green and achieved a UK number one with “Albatross”; and from 1975 to 1987, as a more pop-oriented act, featuring Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. Fleetwood Mac’s second album after the incorporation of Buckingham and Nicks, 1977’s Rumours, produced four U.S. Top 10 singles (including Nicks’ song “Dreams”), and remained at No.1 on the American albums chart for 31 weeks, as well as reaching the top spot in various countries around the world.

“Over My Head” is a soft rock song performed by Anglo-American music group Fleetwood Mac. The song was written by group keyboardist/vocalist Christine McVie. In September 1975, “Over My Head” was released as the lead single from the LP album entitled Fleetwood Mac. It was the band’s first song ever to achieve ‘hit’ status in the United States by appearing on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart (#20 in early 1976). Its success helped the group’s eponymous 1975 album to sell 8 million copies.

McVie has stated that she composed the song using a portable Hohner electric piano in a small apartment in Malibu, California, where she and then-husband John McVie (Fleetwood Mac’s bassist) resided after completing a concert tour to promote the previous album Heroes Are Hard to Find. The words of the song seem—though McVie has never confirmed this—to refer to her troubled marriage, which would end in divorce in 1976.
