All of this hardship created an atmosphere that shaped the general direction of all the lyrics in the album. We'll have things fixed soon. Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube. Rumours Tracklist 1. Second Hand News Lyrics. Dreams Lyrics. These personal tensions fueled nearly every song on Rumours , which makes listening to the album a nearly voyeuristic experience.
You're eavesdropping on the bandmates singing painful truths about each other, spreading nasty lies and rumors and wallowing in their grief, all in the presence of the person who caused the heartache. Everybody loves gawking at a good public breakup, but if that was all that it took to sell a record, Richard and Linda Thompson 's Shoot Out the Lights would be multi-platinum.
No, what made Rumours an unparalleled blockbuster is the quality of the music. It also cloaks the raw emotion of the lyrics in deceptively palatable arrangements that made a tune as wrecked and tortured as "Go Your Own Way" an anthemic hit.
But that's what makes Rumours such an enduring achievement -- it turns private pain into something universal. Some of these songs may be too familiar, whether through their repeated exposure on FM radio or their use in presidential campaigns, but in the context of the album, each tune, each phrase regains its raw, immediate emotional power -- which is why Rumours touched a nerve upon its release, and has since transcended its era to be one of the greatest, most compelling pop albums of all time.
