Fleetwood Mac - "Second Hand News"

Earlier this year, Rumours came out in a fancy new deluxe edition. This is an album whose backstory looms so large that I wonder if impressionable 11-year-olds just now getting into music are handed a copy of the album with the advisory, "They did a lot of drugs, and everybody was screwing everybody else." Luckily, the music's still so terrific that its making isn't that important to its enjoyment. My favorite detail in the opening track: those "shh" background vocals.
