The video is a time capsule, taking us back to the era of big hair, neon colors, and synthesizers. It’s the late 1980s, and the world is alive with the sounds of pop music. The airwaves are filled with hits like “Sweet Child o’ Mine,” “Never Gonna Give You Up,” and “The Look.” Meanwhile, Fleetwood Mac is back with their latest single, “As Long As You Follow.”
It’s hard not to get swept up in the nostalgia of it all. The video opens with shots of a beach at sunset as if to set the stage for a romantic love story. That’s what we get – a classic tale of two lovers separated by distance and circumstance but determined to stay together no matter what.
The song is a perfect blend of pop sensibility and classic rock flair. Lindsey Buckingham’s guitar riffs are as sharp as ever, while Stevie Nicks’ voice soars above the mix. The chorus is catchy and uplifting, with a timeless message: everything will work out if you follow your heart.
But what makes this performance special is the chemistry between the band members. Fleetwood Mac has always been known for their tumultuous relationships, but they seem to be in sync in this video. Christine McVie’s keyboard playing is effortless, John McVie’s bass lines are solid, and Mick Fleetwood’s drumming is as powerful as ever. A sense of camaraderie and mutual respect comes through in their playing, and it’s clear that they’re all having a great time.
As a fan and classic rock, watching this video is a treat. It’s a reminder of a time when music was all about big hooks and big personalities. Fleetwood Mac was at the forefront of that movement, and “As Long As You Follow” is a shining example of why they were so successful.
Interestingly, most fans may not know that “As Long As You Follow” was a new song when it was released on the 1988 album “Greatest Hits.” Many assumed it was a classic Fleetwood Mac tune that had somehow flown under the radar, but it was a brand-new composition. The fact that it fits in so seamlessly with their other hits speaks to the band’s skill as songwriters.
