Go Your Own Way / Fleetwood Mac

Loving you isn't the right thing to do
How can I ever change things that I feel?
If I could, maybe I'd give you my world
How can I, when you won't take it from me?
Go Your Own Way, Written by Lindsay Buckingham, performed by Fleetwood Mac in 1976.

 Buckingham, the male lead of Fleetwood Mac, wrote this song in regards to his bandmate Stevie Nicks after a recent break-up. It would eventually peak at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. While some see this song as repetitive, I see it as one of those rare songs where the title is half the lyrics but you never seem to mind. Every verse that is repeated seems different than the last, and for anyone who has ever been through a separation with a lost love you almost want to scream it out, FINE GO THEN. I DON'T CARE, GO YOUR OWN WAY!
